The Detroit Tigers’ offense struggled again last night, as they lost 5-1 to the Cleveland Indians. Detroit collected just three hits – one, a solo home run by Leonys Martin. Tigers starter Jordan Zimmermann left the game in the first inning, after he was hit on the jaw by a line drive. X-rays showed no damage, and he says he’ll be ready for his next start. Daniel Norris relieved him, and took the loss after giving up four runs in the fourth inning.
The Tigers have lost three in a row, and have scored only three runs in their past four games. They’ll conclude that series in Cleveland tonight. Michael Fulmer will start against Trevor Bauer. Pregame coverage begins at 5:45 on 99.3 The Lift.
After the game, Detroit sent struggling outfielder Mikie Mahtook down to Toledo. After using four relievers last night, they’re expected to add some bullpen help this morning.
