Tigers 7, Indians 2
David Price (31 GS, 226.2 IP, 3.26 ERA, 2.85 FIP, 5.4 fWAR) gave up a home run to Ryan Raburn and basically nothing else. And that’s exactly how it should be. Price went 7.2 innings, gave up eight hits, and punched out seven before handing it off to Jim Johnson to get the final four outs. Kinsler and Castellanos hooked up for a run in the 3rd, JD Martinez homered to add two more in the 4th, and then the Tigers unloaded in the bottom of the 7th to put the game out of reach. It was an all-around comfortable game that mixed good starting pitching and a nice bounce back after getting gassed by Carrasco the last time around. The Tigers will look to take the series with Kyle Lobstein (3 GS, 22.2 IP, 2.78 ERA, 3.60 FIP, 0.3 fWAR) going Saturday.
The Moment: JD Martinez swats a two run bomb in the 4th.
