The Tigers’ series against Oakland A’s has come to an end. It was a rollercoaster three-game series for the Tigers. While it was a good sight to see Tarik Skubal and Eduardo Rodriguez back on the mound, Detroit lost both games in a humiliating fashion. The Tigers lost game one 1-0 in extra-innings and got destroyed in game two, losing 12-3. Game three was a completely different story. Tigers starter Michael Lorenzen was terrific on the mound this afternoon. He pitched five scoreless innings, gave up three hits, zero R, zero ER, zero BB, had four K’s, threw 60 pitches, and 40 were strikes. Jake Marisnick, Kerry Carpenter and Javier Baez led the way offensively for Detroit.

Following the win Detroit made a number of roster moves and had a pitcher claimed off waivers.

Tigers option Tyler Nevin and Zach Logue to Triple-A Toledo

For Tyler Nevin, this stint for the Tigers wasn’t a success. He’s batting a dreadful .125 this season at the Major League level. In 21 games, Nevin has only had one extra-base hit.

Zach Logue has only appeared in two games this season but he has struggled. In seven innings pitched, Logue has a 7.71 ERA. The opposing team has scored six runs on seven hits off of Logue this season. He struck out five batters and walked two.

Akil Baddoo and Alex Faedo will return on Friday

This will be Faedo’s first start since May 30th. Faedo is 1-3 this season in five games. He has a 5.54 ERA, 26 strikeouts, only two walks, and a 0.923 WHIP.

LHP Anthony Misiewicz claimed off waivers by Yankees

He gave up four hits and three earned runs. After being placed on waivers, Misiewicz was claimed by the Yankees. Misiewicz finished his career with the Tigers with an 81.00 ERA.
