MLB
The Detroit Tigers managed just one hit, as they fell to the Pittsburgh Pirates 3-0 last night. Jordan Zimmermann turned in a quality start, giving up three runs over seven innings, but took the loss.

The Tigers continue that interleague series against the Pirates in Pittsburgh tonight. Matthew Boyd will start against Chad Kuhl. Pregame coverage begins at 6:40 on 99.3 The Lift.

Eddie Rosario scored the winning run on a balk in the seventh inning, as the Minnesota Twins edged the Milwaukee Brewers 5-4 last night. Rosario broke toward the plate from third base while Oliver Drake was preparing to deliver a pitch. Drake flinched, and the umpires waved Rosario home. Keon Broxton homered for Milwaukee.

The Brewers continue that interleague set against the Twins in Minnesota this evening. Matt Garza will pitch against Adalberto Mejia.

The Cubs won last night, and now lead Milwaukee by a game-and-a-half in the National League Central Division.
