Pittsburgh 6 Detroit 3.  Chad Kuhl shuts down Detroit on five hits allowing all three runs in the sixth,  Detroit again did little against Pittsburgh's bullpen.  The Pirates took advantage of an ineffective Matt Boyd getting all six of its runs, five earned against Boyd.  There were also missed chances in the second and fifth innings when Pittsburgh turned a twin killing.

Pittsburgh 7 Detroit 5.  Pittsburgh takes advantage of a struggling Drew VerHagen to score six of their runs in 3 2/3 innings.  VerHagen struggled to get offspeed pitches over the plate allowing the Pirates to sit on the fastball.  Pirate starter Gerrit Cole moved the fastball around the strike zone and got hitters to chase offspeed pitches out of the strike zone.

Minnesota 9 Detroit 4.  Anibal Sanchez continues to have issues with the gopher ball as two sinkerballs up in the strikezone cleared the fences for five runs.  The bullpen continued to put pitches over the plate to eliminate a possible comeback.  Defensive plays in the outfield and a baserunning mistake by Nick Castellanos resulted in a doubleplay after one of the catches.

Detroit 12 Minnesota 11.  In what looked like a low scoring Lions-Vikings game, Detroit's bullpen outlasts Minnesota's.  Justin Upton sent a 2-1 fastball into the left field seats in the bottom of the ninth to give Detroit the win.  The win bailed out starter Jordan Zimmerman who began leaving pitches over the plate in the third allowing the Twins to erase an early 5-0 Detroit lead.  The Twins' bullpen returned the favor in the final three innings and two of those mistakes found the seats.  The Twins also failed to complete a double play in the eighth and left the bases loaded in the ninth that could have put the game away.  A two out infield single in the first allowed Detroit to start a five run inning.

Minnesota 6 Detroit 4.  Another bullpen meltdown in the eighth is the deciding factor again.  Bruce Rondon lasted nine pitches, only found the strike zone, in walking two batters and both of them came around to score.  The longball and the Twins' ability to execute the bunt contributed.  Detroit also couldn't get the timely hit needing an error, three passed balls, and a wild pitch to score three runs in the fifth.

Texas 6 Detroit 2.  A combination of three walks, two stolen bases, a bunt single, and a sacrifice are the keys to Texas' win over Detroit.  James McCann contributed a throwing error attempting to pick Roughned Odor off second base after stealing the bag.  Starter Martin Perez settled in after allowing a first inning home and trailing 2-0 after only three batters.  An ineffective Michael Fulmer allowed five runs on seven hits and three walks.

Los Angeles Dodgers 8 Detroit 5.  Dodgers take advantage of mistakes on Jordan Zimmerman's fastballs to score seven of their runs.  Some of those mistakes came after Detroit had closed the score to 4-3.  Defensive plays in the field aided the Dodgers.  One stopped an eighth inning chance and Detroit missed another chance in the ninth.

Los Angeles Dodgers 3 Detroit 0.  An extra out in the seventh, a leadoff walk in the eighth that came around to score, and a home run in the ninth give the Dodger the win.  Nick Castellanos misplayed a two out infield fly for a two base error leading to the first run.  A walk and a single followed.  Detroit also failed to take advantage of a struggling Hyun-Jin Ryu who allowed four walks, but was able to mix up pitches to hold the Tigers to three hits.  They got only one hit against the Dodgers' bullpen.  Detroit left the bases loaded in the third and a runner a second in the fifth and hit into a double play in the second.  Outstanding catches in the outfield helped prevent a rally by Detroit.

Detroit 6 Los Angeles Dodgers 1.  Justin Verlander shuts down the Dodgers on one and two hits over eight innings using a combination of fastballs and sliders with a few curveballs thrown in.  Both Verlander and Kenta Maeda took no hitters into the sixth.  Curtis Granderson sat on a slider for the first hit and run of the game in the sixth.  Maeda began leaving pitches over the plate in the bottom half.  Hanging sliders resulted in a two run double and a two run homer.  The Dodgers' first runner was Yasiel Puig who walked on a 3-2 pitch in the fifth.

New York Yankees 13 Detroit 4.  Matt Boyd combines with three relievers to pitch batting practice to the Yankees as three of their mistakes left the yard accounting for six runs.  A triple accounted for two more in the third.  Boyd lasted 2 1/3 innings getting shelled for seven runs on seven hits with three walks in not locating pitches properly.  Nick Castellanos was the lone bright spot for Detroit with two home runs, the second an inside the park job when centerfielder Jacoby Ellsbury misplayed a line drive.
