The number of runs allowed by Tigers starter Shane Greene in only three innings pitched. Greene was also tagged for seven hits, a walk and a home run. He struck out three, but that didn’t help him much in the start. Greene was sent to Triple-A after a prolonged stretch of struggling.
The number of runs allowed by the Detroit bullpen. An unusually bad day for the relievers, Blaine Hardy was the only relief pitcher to escape without allowing a runner to cross home plate. Kyle Ryan was solid, allowing only one run (unearned) in three innings, but the rest of the team failed to deliver. Angel Nesbitt allowed three runs while only recording one out, which was slightly better than Tom Gorzelanny, who gave up two without getting a single out. Al Alburquerque also let a run in.
The Tigers were able to put 11 runners on base, but failed to do much thanks to 11 punch outs. Yoenis Cespedes was the only Detroit starter without a strikeout.
