5 Stats from the Detroit Tigers 1-0 Win over the Pittsburgh Pirates

The number of strikeouts by Tigers hitters. A 10/2 strikeout-to-walk ratio is never a good thing, but Detroit was able to pull out another win regardless.

  • Two

The number of hits surrendered by the Tigers pitchers. Detroit pitchers didn’t allow a walk either. Nick Castellanos also had two hits in three plate appearances, helping him break out of a mini slump that saw him put up a 3-for-17 line over his last four contests.

  • Four

This game marked the fourth save for closer Joakim Soria, who pitched a perfect ninth. This was Soria’s third straight perfect inning. The closer has faced 17 batters and only allowed two baserunners, both came in a 9-6 win over Cleveland. He’s only allowed one run on the season as well—that run also came in the 9-6 win over Cleveland.

  • One

The number of runs needed to win the game. This came on a solo home run by Rajai Davis in the sixth inning. It was Davis’ first home run of the year and only his second RBI.
