5 Stats from the Detroit Tigers 8-1 Loss to the Kansas City Royals

  • Six

The number of runs allowed by Tigers starter Alfredo Simon. The righty also struck out six while allowing nine hits. It was his first loss of the season.

  • Two

The number of hits by Victor Martinez. V-Mart was the only Tiger with multiple hits. It was only his fourth multi-hit game of the season.

  • 10

The number of strikeouts by Detroit hitters. J.D. Martinez led the way with three while Yoenis Cespedes and Nick Castellanos each had two. James McCann, Rajai Davis and Miguel Cabrera each had one.

  • Zero

The number of runs allowed by Al Alburquerque and Angel Nesbitt in relief. Both threw scoreless innings. It was a particularly encouraging sign for Albuquerque due to some early struggles. He allowed seven runs over three innings in two blowout losses to Cleveland and New York. This was his second scoreless outing so it seems that the reliever is turning things around.

  • One

The number of runs scored by the Tigers. The lone run came on a Rajai Davis single which scored Jose Iglesias, who had tripled.
