Detroit Tigers baseball returns on Thursday. The team continues the 2017 regular season at home against the San Francisco Giants. Here’s what you need to know to watch the game.

Detroit Tigers players will look to win another series on Thursday as they wrap up a three-game set with the San Francisco Giants.

After losing eight games in a row, Detroit has a chance to post a 6-4 record in the 10 following games.

So far, the team has gone 5-4 in nine games since the slide.

The Tigers’ run differential over that span is zero. While that isn’t the best number in the world, it also isn’t in the negative.

Detroit lost on Wednesday despite rallying for four runs in the seventh inning. Down 5-0 up until that point, Miguel Cabrera and company couldn’t quite put it all together.

Ian Kinsler, Miguel Cabrera and Victor Martinez all drove in two runs apiece, while Mikie Mahtook, Victor Martinez, Cabrera and J.D. Martinez all scored runs.

All told, the team accounted for nine hits, four runs, four RBI and a pair of walks.

On the pitching side of things, Daniel Norris struggled early, surrendering seven hits, five earned runs and four walks in just four innings.

He did strike out two batters, but it took the young starter 70 pitches to get through his four frames of work.

After Norris exited, Warwick Saupold came in and allowed just one hit in three shutout innings of work. Bruce Rondon and Shane Greene would follow with scoreless innings themselves.

As a unit, the bullpen gave up just two hits and two walks while striking out two in five combined innings.
