Tigers rally for win over Indians

16 May 2018

As a unit, Detroit's pitchers have yielded 4.7 runs per game overall in 2018.

Detroit (18-22) faces Cleveland (20-20) in the second game of the three-game series on Tuesday night.

Carpenter, who was pitching at Class AAA Toledo, has made two appearances for the Tigers this season, including one start.

"Everyone comes out here and competes". Goodrum we got ahead of 1-2, he fouled off a fastball up and laid off two breaking balls that I tend to get swings on so you tip your cap.

"No.1, we've got to get better", said Tomlin.

Goodrum hit a two-run shot in the fourth inning and a three-run homer in the eighth, highlighting an impressive performance from a Detroit team missing some key regulars.

The Tigers' hitters have been led by right fielder Nicholas Castellanos and third baseman Jeimer Candelario. Cleveland is 3-4 ATS over its last seven games and the total has gone over in four of those seven.

Tomlin allowed four runs on six hits in 5 1/3 innings.

"Teams have been very aggressive against me in my last two starts, but especially tonight", Carrasco said.

Tigers designated hitter Victor Martinez homered in the first inning on May 8 in Texas. "It's not something I was expecting, and my stuff wasn't good enough to get me out of trouble".

Tiger starter Francisco Liriano gave up five runs on seven hits, including a first inning grand slam, while walking three and striking out three in four and one third innings. He struck out three and walked three. The Indians scored an unearned run in the eighth, but with the tying run on second, left-hander Daniel Stumpf came on and retired Yonder Alonso on a first-pitch popup for the third out.

Davis, though, hit a two-run double off Reininger in the sixth to give Cleveland a 7-3 lead, and he scored on Ramirez's double off Hicks' glove at first. It was his third homer in two games.

Andrew Miller took the loss for Cleveland.

Lindor, batting cleanup for injured DH Edwin Encarnacion, saw his 15-game hitting streak end as he went 0-for-2 with three walks. Shane Greene pitched the ninth for his ninth save. In 19 games against divisional foes, Tigers starters have an ERA of 3.67 and the bullpen's ERA is 3.72.

"I'm just not sharp at all", said Miller, who came off the disabled list on Friday, "and I'm really hurting us".

Goodrum was drafted in the second round in 2010 by Minnesota, but his big league debut didn't come until a year ago with the Twins.

Hicks pulled the Tigers within 5-2 with an RBI single in the fifth, and Jose Iglesias' run-scoring groundout made it a two-run game. "I feel good where we're at". "He's great. He supports my foundation", Price said. He has appeared in one game since he crashed into the wall at Yankee Stadium on May 5.

JaCoby Jones and John Hicks combined for four hits, four runs and four RBIs, and the Detroit Tigers rallied from a pair of four-run deficits to defeat the visiting Cleveland Indians 9-8 on Tuesday night.
