The number of Tigers’ starters who registered multi-hit games. Miguel Cabrera, Victor Martinez, Yoenis Cespedes and Jose Iglesias all collected three hits while Ian Kinsler, Anthony Gose and Nick Castellanos had two hits apiece. Detroit had 18 hits against the Indians and drew three walks. Gose has now put up multi-hit games in all three of his appearances for the Tigers this season. Its early days, but the trade to bring in Gose seems to be paying off for Brad Ausmus and company.

The number of innings pitched by Cleveland starter Zach McAllister. The starter allowed 13 hits and made way for a whopping six Tribe relief pitchers. This bodes well for the Tigers considering Cleveland’s bullpen will be slightly more taxed for the rest of the series.
