The team, in a nutshell.
Tigers 9, Indians 6
This one promised to be a duel of starters, but wound up being a clash of offenses and the bullpens they punished. The Tigers tagged Kluber for two early runs, one coming on a Gose HR and the other, a team effort. The aces held serve until David Price’s (2 GS, 14.1 IP, 0.00 ERA, 1.96 FIP) final inning where two walks, his own error, and a Jerry Sands double broke it open for a three run frame. The Tigers got three runs back in the 7th to bail out their ace, and then of course, their bullpen gave them back in the 8th inning to make this a pretty normal Tigers-Indians game. With the score tired 5-5, the Tigers offense struck back in the 9th with two walks by Romine and Davis setting up the middle of the order for a big four run inning, sending the game to Soria and a victory. Tigers will look to sweep and stay perfect on Sunday with Kyle Lobstein (2015 Debut) on the bump.
The Moment: Gose leads off the game by taking Kluber deep.
