- Tigers get swept by the Royals to start their home stand getting punished 16-2.
LP Anibal Sanchez ( 2-1 )
WP Ian Kennedy (4-6)
Anibal Sanchez had a bad game, going 3.2 innings, striking out 4 batters, walked 2 batters, gave up 4 Earned Runs and allowed 9 hits. The bullpen struggled mightily tonight.
Jose Iglesias had an RBI tonight.
Miguel Cabrera’s 2nd-inning single tonight gave him 2,600 career hits; he’s the 5th active player to reach that milestone.
Up Next: Tigers have an off day on Thursday then start a 3 game series vs the first place Houston Astros, so it’s not going to get any easier. They have to face ( 9-0 ) Dallas Keuchel just being taken off the DL.
