Detroit bullpen struggles again, Chicago rallies for 6-4 win at Comerica Park

DETROIT, MI (WTVB) - It’s a trouble spot that may tug at the Detroit Tigers all season long with their bullpen blowing another one last night in a 6-4 loss to the White Sox. Detroit this afternoon will try to salvage a split in the 4-game series at Comerica Park.

The Tigers were ahead 4-2 after six innings last night but in the top of the seventh, Marcus Semien connected on what proved to be the game clinching home run with a grand slam off Detroit reliever Ian Krol, whowas trying to get around a jam that developed when Evan Reed relieved Tiger starter Drew Smyly and couldn’t retire a batter, giving up two singles and a walk before turning it over to Krol. The loss went to Reed in his first decision of the season. Austin Jackson hit a two-run home run for the Tigers and J.D. Martinez also knocked in a pair with a 2-run single.

Detroit’s 10-8 record leaves them with a one game lead over the White Sox, Twins and Royals in the bunched up American League Central with the Indians a game-and-a-back. Max Scherzer goes to the mound for the Tigers this afternoon.

The Arizona Diamondbacks rallied with a five run ninth inning to beat the Cubs 7-5 yesterday to spoil the 100th anniversary of Wrigley Field
