Detroit Tigers baseball returns on Wednesday as the team continues the 2017 regular season at home against the Pittsburgh Pirates. Here’s what you need to know to watch the game.
Detroit Tigers players will look to rebound at home on Wednesday as the team returns home.
The team’s opponent for Wednesday will be the Pittsburgh Pirates. Andrew McCutchen and company travel to the Motor City after taking two from the Tigers in Pittsburgh.
Detroit’s most recent loss came on Tuesday, as the team fell behind by six runs early.
Matthew Boyd coughed up nine hits, six runs (five earned), a home run and a walk in four innings before departing.
The Tigers bullpen did well the rest of the way, combining to allow one hit while striking out seven in four shutout innings. However, the offense couldn’t claw all the way back into the contest.
Outfielder Jim Adduci and first baseman Miguel Cabrera both plated runs as the Tigers scored three runs in the top of the sixth, but that’s all Detroit would get on the day as Pittsburgh’s bullpen didn’t allow a base runner the rest of the way.
