Detroit Tigers Can’t Sweep Rangers, Lose 5-2

Texas Rangers v Detroit Tigers

Alexi Ogando hasn’t been pitching in the Big Leagues very long. In fact, he hasn’t even been a pitcher very long. The former outfielder has sure had the Tigers figured out, and dominated Detroit again today giving up just two runs in a 5-2 Texas victory.

Ogando blanked the Tigers until the 7th inning when Detroit strung together several singles to put two runs on the board. It was too little and too late for the Tigers, who could produce no more. Ogando is now 11-5. Brad Penny battled against a good-hitting Texas team that nicked him for 11 hits and five runs in just under 7 innings work. Penny’s record falls to 7-9 on the season.
The Tigers took two of three against the defending American League champions, and will now hit the road to take on Kansas City tomorrow night. Rick Porcello will go for his 12th win of the season, first pitch at 8:05 pm.

The Tigers remain in first place in the American League Central, and await the outcome of Cleveland’s game at Boston tonight as well as Chicago vs the Yankees. The Tigers were 4 games up on Cleveland and 6 up on the White Sox before today’s game.
