Tigers Hold off Indians – Sunday Sports Wrap

MLB

Tyler Alexander turned in a good start, as the Detroit Tigers edged the Cleveland Indians 2-1 last night. Alexander pitched into the sixth, allowing four hits and no runs. Detroit took an early lead on a Zack Short sacrifice fly in the second inning, and added the eventual game-winner on an Akil Badoo RBI single in the fifth. Cleveland loaded the bases with one out in the sixth, but Michael Fulmer came in to quench the threat. Gregory Soto gave up a lead-off home run to former Tiger Wilson Ramos in the ninth inning, but was able to close out his 13th save.

The Tigers conclude that series in Cleveland tonight. Wily Peralta will start against Zach Plesac. Coverage will begin at 12:50 on 99.3 The Lift.

Detroit has signed infielder Jonathan Schoop to a two-year contract extension. It’s worth $15 million, and Schoop will have the opportunity to opt out after the first year.

The Milwaukee Brewers fell to the San Francisco Giants 9-6 in 11 innings last night. Most of the evening was a quiet pitchers battle. The Crew scored single runs in the third and fourth innings. Brandon Woodruff gave up a run on six hits over six frames. Brent Suter gave up a game-tying triple to Tommy La Stella in the ninth. The extra-inning offensive explosion began when the Giants plated three runs off Miguel Sánchez in the top of the 10th. Angel Perdomo relieved Sánchez with one out, and worked out of a bases-loaded jam with no further damage. Home runs by Luis Urías and Kolton Wong re-tied the game in the bottom of the 10th. San Francisco piled on four more off Sal Romano in the top of the 11th. Milwaukee got one back on an RBI single by Lorenzo Cain in the bottom of the 11th, but couldn’t complete another comeback.

The Brewers host the Giants again this afternoon. Brett Anderson will pitch against Johnny Cueto.
