Click on the blue links for more details.

Justin Smoak’s home run in the bottom of the ninth inning lifted the Toronto Blue Jays to a 4-3 comeback victory over the Detroit Tigers yesterday. Detroit took early control of the contest, with a John Hicks solo home run in the second inning, and a two-run shot by Nicholas Castellanos in the third. Matthew Boyd pitched four shutout innings, but gave up three runs in the fifth. Smoak’s walk-off shot came off Joe Jiménez.

The Tigers have bow lost 11 straight, and conclude that series at Toronto today. Jordan Zimmermann will pitch against J.A. Happ. Pregame coverage will begin at 12:45 on 99.3 The Lift.

Reliever Alex Wilson left yesterday’s game with a strained left calf muscle. He’ll be evaluated today.

The Milwaukee Brewers gave up eight runs in the seventh inning, and lost to the Cincinnati Reds 12-3 yesterday. Eric Thames got the Crew off to a quick start with a solo home run in the first inning. Milwaukee added two more runs in the sixth. Jhoulys Chacín gave up a run over five innings. Taylor Williams allowed a run in the sixth, but left the game after giving up a lead-off single in the seventh. The Red’s scoring outburst came off Mike Zagurski and Jacob Barnes.

The Brewers wrap up that series at Cincinnati this afternoon. Freddy Peralta will start against Matt Harvey.

With the NHL free agent signing window opening today at noon, the Detroit Red Wings appear to be ready to re-sign veteran defenseman Mike Green. Reports say the contract is worth 10.75-million dollars over two years. Green missed time this past season because of neck surgery, but should be ready for training camp. There are also reports that Detroit will sign goaltender Jonathan Bernier to back up Jimmy Howard. Bernier played for the Avalanche last season.
