Detroit Tigers Overcome 5-0 Deficit, But Lose 6-5

The Tigers top pitching prospect, Jacob Turner still has much to learn about pitching in the big leagues. Turner made his 3rd M.L. start tonight and was hit hard and often. He left the game with no outs in the 4th and the Tigers trailing 5-0. He would not get saddled with the loss despite the rocky start. Al Alburquerque got the side out in the 4th, and the Tigers would tie the game at 5-5 in the 5th on Delmon Young’s 3-run homer.
David Pauley allowed the Orioles to score what proved to be the winning run on a checked-swing single in the 6th. The Baltimore bullpen then proceeded to stymie the Tiger hitters for the final four innings to win 6-5. The Tigers had a chance to put some distance between themselves and the Texas Rangers for the 2nd best record in the American League and home field advantage in the first round of the playoffs. The Rangers lost earlier today to Oakland, but the Tigers couldn’t finish the comeback against the Orioles. Detroit and Texas have identical 90-66 records with six games to play.

The Tigers and Orioles will play game two of their 4-game series tomorrow night at Comerica Park. 7:05 pm first pitch, Rick Porcello will go for his 15th win for the Tigers.
