Tigers Pounded By Pittsburgh Again. Losing Streak At Five

Max Scherzer wasn’t exactly horrible, but he did suffer his first loss of the season as Pittsburgh beat Detroit 6-2.  The main problem is that the Tiger bats remained silent for eight of the nine innings in last night’s loss, which is the team’s 5th in a row. 

The Tigers actually enjoyed a lead for a while in this one, scoring twice in the 4th inning on back-to-back-to-back doubles by Andy Dirks, Miguel Cabrera and Brennan Boesch.  Unfortunately, they would score no more.  Meanwhile, the Pirates knocked Scherzer out by scoring 3 runs off him in the sixth inning.  Ryan Perry came in from the bullpen to throw gas on the fire, allowing three more Pirate runs in the next inning.  That was it for the scoring.

The Tigers and Pirates will wrap up their 3-game interleague series this afternoon in Pittsburgh.  1:35 first pitch.  Rick Porcello will try to end the Tiger skid as the starting pitcher for Detroit.  So far this season, Detroit has been a “streaky” team.  I just wish the losing streaks would be of shorter duration.
