Detroit Tigers baseball returns on Thursday as the team continues the 2017 regular season at home against Cleveland in the first game of a double header. Here’s what you need to know to watch the game.
Detroit Tigers players will look to build some positive momentum down the stretch.
That being said, the team did just win two of three against the Colorado Rockies.
Verlander won what proved to be his final start in a Detroit uniform, pitching six strong innings.
He surrendered just three hits, a run, a walk and a home run. In vintage Verlander fashion, he punched out nine on the day.
Detroit’s closer allowed a hit, a run and a walk, but slammed the door shut.
The Tigers won by a final score of 6-2.
However, Detroit’s most notable offensive development came from Verlander, who dropped in a single to center field in the top of the second to plate McCann and hand the Tigers the lead.
