The Tigers rallied in the ninth, but then lost to the Guardians 4-3 in 10 innings yesterday. Down 3-1 in the ninth, Jonathan Schoop doubled home one run, and Eric Haase’s bases-loaded groundout tied the game. In the top of the 10th, Oscar González’ single off Gregory Soto drove home the game-winning run. Javier Báez homered earlier for Detroit.
The Tigers visit the White Sox tonight. Daniel Norris will start against Michael Kopech. Coverage begins at 6:50 on 99.3 The Lift.
Norris becomes the 16th pitcher to start a game for Detroit this season. The Tigers signed him to a minor league contract after he was released late last month by the Cubs. To make room on the 26-man roster, pitcher Luis Castillo was returned to Toledo. Detroit will also need to open a spot on their 40-man roster for him. The Tigers created a spot on the 40-man roster for recently-promoted slugger Kerry Carpenter by transferring pitcher Beau Brieske to the 60-day injured list.
The Brewers had yesterday off, and visit the Cardinals tonight. Eric Lauer will pitch against Jordan Montgomery.

The Wisconsin Windigo hockey team is seeking families to host their players during the team’s upcoming training camp in Houghton.
The session will be held at the John MacInnes Student Ice Arena August 21 through 31. Host families will receive a $120 stipend, and four tickets to a game of their choice at a Windigo home game this season.
The Windigo are coached by former Tech player Blake Hietila, and are owned by former Husky John Rockwell, and Calumet native David Rowe. They will play their inaugural season at the Dome in Eagle River, Wisconsin, after being relocated from Minnesota.
