Matt Boyd got wrecked tonight, giving up 9 Hits, 5 Earned Runs, but had 5 strike outs. It was a short leash tonight for Boyd. Only went 4.0 innings, threw 80 pitches.
Newly acquired Jeimer Candalerio got his first hit as a Tiger that started a 3 run inning. But the Tigers Bats came to life a little to late as Pittsburgh’s Kuhl cruised for the win.
Mikie Mahtook had a 2 for 3 game.
Adduci and Cabrera had RBI’S tonight.
Up Next: These same 2 teams will meet up in Detroit starting another 2 game series.
Gametime starts at 7:08 pm.
Justin Verlander (7-7) ERA 4.20 Vs Ivan Nova (10-8) ERA 3.66.
Hopefully the ace can bring the Tigers to Victory and stop the losing skid.
