How Was The Game? (May 20, 2015)

Tigers 5, Brewers 2

For most of the evening, it looked like we were in for another night lamenting the not-quite-there Tigers offense. Over the first 7 innings, the teams traded runs on two occasions, allowing Shane Greene (9 GS, 53.1 IP, 4.05 ERA, 3.66 FIP) to look good over 6.1 innings, preventing the Tigers from controlling the game. With two outs in the 8th, Martinez and Cespedes walked, Collins singled, and Castellanos came to the plate in the definition of a high leverage situation. He fouled off a pair of two strike pitches before punching one down in the right field corner behind Parra to clear the bases and give the Tigers a path to victory. Soria allowed a double to start the 9th, but gathered himself to get the final three outs and spare the club a sweep. David Price (8 GS, 53 IP, 3.40 ERA, 3.76 FIP) is in line to face the Astros on Thursday.

The Moment: Castellanos sends one into the corner for a bases-clearing triple.
