Detroit Tigers baseball returns on Wednesday as the team continues the 2017 regular season on the road against the Texas Rangers. Here’s what you need to know to watch.

Detroit Tigers players will look to rebound with a win and salvage the series in Texas on Wednesday night.

The team dropped the first two games to the American League West franchise, including Tuesday’s 10-4 defeat.

Justin Verlander started and threw six innings, but had trouble with the home run ball, allowing three against Texas.

Despite striking out eight, Verlander was also tagged for eight hits and five runs. He didn’t walk any hitters.

Joe Jimenez followed in relief and looked solid in two thirds of an inning of work. He walked a batter and struck out one.

The right-hander seemed more comfortable than he has been in previous outings, which is an obvious good sign.

Daniel Stumpf and Warwick Saupold also pitched, with Saupold running into trouble in the eighth. The long reliever surrendered four runs, four walks and three hits in only one inning of work.

Offensively, Detroit could only muster four runs despite 10 hits and three walks. Catcher John Hicks had three hits, while Ian Kinsler and Victor Martinez each collected two knocks.

Save for a Jose Iglesias double in the second that plated Hicks, all of the Tigers’ runs came with the team behind in the game.

Detroit scored two in the seventh to cut a 5-1 lead to 5-3, but then saw the deficit balloon to 10-3 heading into the ninth.

Despite a late home run from Victor Martinez and singles from Hicks and Alex Presley, the Tigers weren’t able successfully mount a late rally.
