A’s 4, Tigers 0
In general, allowing four runs against the A’s isn’t a particularly poor showing, especially considering the stars aligning for a Billy Butler infield single. The full line doesn’t look great for Shane Greene (10 GS, 59 IP, 4.27 ERA, 3.49 FIP) but he gave the offense a chance to make it a game. Unfortunately, the Tigers bats didn’t get anything going all afternoon. They had two men on just once today and promptly grounded into a double play. You’re never surprised when the bats are quite after a cross-country-flight-day-game combo, but after a couple of hard losses, it might feel a little worse. David Price (9 GS, 59.2 IP, 3.32 ERA, 3.35 FIP) will look to change the tune on Tuesday night.
The Moment: Castellanos makes a find sliding grab in the 3rd.
