Detroit Tigers players will look to keep the positive momentum going again on Sunday when they finish out a four-game series with the Baltimore Orioles.
The Tigers claimed the first two games in the series by final scores of 7-5 and 5-2. As it would happen, they lost Saturday’s contest by a 5-2 score line.
Justin Upton got Detroit on the board early with a two-run shot in the first inning, plating Nicholas Castellanos on the play and giving the team an early lead.
That lead would hold until the bottom of the fifth, when Adam Jones launched a solo home run to center field to tie things up.
Jones had previously scored the O’s first run of the game in the third on a double by second baseman Johnathan Schoop.
The two runs were all Detroit would be able to muster on the day, as Baltimore tacked on a run in the seventh and two in the eighth.
