5 Stats from the Detroit Tigers’ 5-2 Win vs the Milwaukee Brewers

  • Four

The number of runs driven in by Nick Castellanos. The third baseman also had two hits, giving Shane Greene and the rest of the team all the run support they would need.

  • Two

The number of runs allowed Tigers starter Greene. He allowed only three hits in 6.1 innings, striking out six.

  • Five

The number of combined hits for J.D. Martinez and Yoenis Cespedes. With Victor Martinez on the disabled list, these two will be heavily leaned upon to drive in more runs in the middle of the order. J.D. Martinez had two hits and scored two runs while Cespedes also scored two runs on three hits and a walk. The duo did not strike out.

  • .282

James McCann’s batting average after the game. The Tigers catcher had an underwhelming day at the plate with just a walk in three plate appearances (two of them via the strikeout), but his solid displays with the bat so far this season will help make up for the temporary loss of V-Mart. The fact that Jose Iglesias, the team’s ninth hitter, is sporting a .328 batting average doesn’t hurt either.

  • One

The number of hits by Tyler Collins, who started at designated hitter. Collins also drew a walk and scored a run in his second game of the season. With J.D. Martinez and Cespedes moving up in the order to fill in for V-Mart, Collins will be counted upon to provide solid production lower in the order. If he continues to turn in displays like he did on Wednesday, he’ll provide much-needed stability.

5 Stats from the Detroit Tigers 8-1 Loss to the Milwaukee Brewers

  • 10

The difference between the Brewers’ total hits (13) and the Tigers’ (3). Detroit did draw four walks, but they have to get more hits if they want to succeed.

  • Nine

The number of pitches seen by Nick Castellanos over four at-bats. There’s being aggressive early in the count, and then there’s this. The third baseman saw the fewest pitched of anyone on the team. Anthony Gose wasn’t far behind with ten pitches seen in four at-bats.

  • Seven

The number of runs allowed by Tigers starter Anibal Sanchez. Sanchez has been brilliant in some of his starts, and then dreadful in others. He allowed more home runs (three) than strikeouts recorded (two).

  • 12

The number of pitches needed by reliever Alex Wilson to complete 1.1 perfect innings. The right-hander struck out two and now sports a 1.69 ERA on the season. Wilson has only allowed six baserunners in his last 10.2 innings. He’s struck out six over that span as well. Brad Ausmus has only used the former Red Sox pitcher in two games that the Tigers won this season. It will be interesting to see if Ausmus starts regularly using him in more important games.

  • One

The number of runs allowed by the bullpen. Wilson, Al Alburquerque and Blaine Hardy kept the Brewers off the board until Joba Chamberlain let a run in during the ninth inning.
