Washington 3 Detroit 2. Max Scherzer ties a major league record with 20 strikeouts in a nine inning game and scattering six hits, two of which left the ballpark. Detroit had problems with a combination of fastballs and sliders with a few changeups thrown in. Detroit did have second and third chance in the seventh, but a pair of strikeouts ended that threat.

Baltimore 7 Detroit 5. The bullpen blows another lead as two relievers combine to surrender a five run seventh inning with three of the runs coming after two outs. Detroit also hurt itself by failing to get the big hit that could have blown the game open. Detroit stranded runners at the corners in the first and third innings, hit into a bases load doubleplay in the second, and repeatedly left runners in scoring position. The Tigers were 3 of 13 with runners in scoring position.

Baltimore 1 Detroit 0. Justin Verlander allowed only four hits in a complete game performance, but one of those was a fastball Adam Jones lined into the Baltimore bullpen. Detroit was not able to get a runner to third, but missed chances in the first, second, and seventh innings. A doubleplay ended the second inning and leadoff double in the seventh was wasted.

Baltimore 9 Detroit 3. The longball provides Baltimore with eight of their runs. Anibal Sanchez continues to have problems with the gopher ball allowing two and the bullpen continues to struggle allowing a pair. Detroit also wasted a bases load chance in the third when Miguel Cabrera hit into an inning ending doubleplay. and also left a runner at second in the sixth after Cabrera homered with a man on.

Detroit 6 Baltimore 5. Detroit avoids a four game sweep as J.D. Martinez and Miguel Cabrera sent consecutive two out pitches in the eighth inning over the wall. Martinez got away with chasing an outside slider the previous pitch. Detroit still had difficulty getting timely hits as they stranded 11 runners leaving the bases loaded in the second and third innings and hitting 3 for 11 with runners in scoring position. A fielding error in the fifth preceded a home run by Manny Machado.

Detroit 10 Minnesota 8. Detroit scored 8 times in the first inning sending 13 batters to the plate taking advantage of Jose Berrios' struggle to locate home plate. Berrios allowed seven runs on three hits, but walked four, all of them coming around to score. Jordan Zimmerman failed to bear down and would blow that eight run lead allowing home runs to Kurt Suzuki and Miguel Sano, both on sliders. Detroit committed three errors, two of which figured in the scoring. A throwing error by Jarrod Saltalamacchia on a steal of third in the fourth allowed one run score. J.D. Martinez dropped a routine fly ball in the seventh to allow the tying run to score. Home runs by Nick Castellanos in the bottom half of the seventh and Martinez in the eighth bailed Zimmerman out.

Detroit had not blown a this large a lead since watching a 10 run lead disappear in one inning against Texas in 2004.

Detroit 7 Minnesota 2. Detroit takes advantage of a faltering Minnesota bullpen to score all seven of its runs sending 11 batters to the plate. Starter Phil Hughes was lifted after a triple and sacrifice fly and the Twins needed three relievers to get the final two outs. Mike Pelfrey made mistakes on two sinkerballs to account for the Twins two runs in pitching 5 1/3 innings.

Detroit 6 Minnesota 3. Defensive lapses figure prominently in this one. A failure to hit the cutoff man in the first inning on a RBI single by J.D. Martinez allowed him to reach second base. Miguel Sano misplayed a bloop single by Justin Upton allowing Upton to reach second when Sano overran the ball. He should have charged with two errors on the play. That catch has to be made. A throwing error on a pickoff attempt at first base allowed Camryn Maybin to reach third and he would score. Ian Kinsler reached second on a throwing error in the first inning by shortstop Eduardo Nunez. Another poor throw by Nunez allowed a batter to reach first.

Tampa Bay 7 Detroit 5. Tampa Bay got home runs from Steven Souza and Steve Pearce and Anibal Sanchez continues to struggle with control getting behind in the count often. Sanchez allowed five runs, though two were inherited runners by Kyle Ryan who surrendered a bases clearing triple.

Detroit 5 Tampa Bay 4. The longball provides Detroit's offense on this day. Two runs shots in the seventh inning by James McCann and J. D. Martinez gave Detroit a 5-1 lead before Justin Wilson alllowed three runs in the eighth on a two run triple on a hanging curveball and strike out/wild pitch that should have been ruled a passed ball. Camrym Mabin had a solo shot for Detroit. Maybin would get picked off second on a failed bunt attempt later on.

Detroit 5 Philadelphia 4. The longball and failure to get timely hits are Philadelphia's undoing with solo shots accounting for four of Detroit's runs. Detroit turned doubleplays in the first and third innings to eliminate scoring chances. Freddy Galvis was thrown out single trying to stretch a single into a double. The Phillies also missed chances in the fourth, seventh, and eighth innings.

Detroit 3 Philadelphia 1. Justin Verlander shuts down Philadelphia on three hits over eight innings not allowing a runner into scoring position after the first inning. Francisco Rodriguez allowed hits to the first two batters in the ninth inning, but got out of the inning with only one run scored. A misplay at third by third baseman Maikel Franco on a chopper by J. D. Martinez went for a double when knocking the ball down might have saved a run or resulted in a possible double play. The double put runners at second and third and they would score on consecutive hits by Miguel Cabrera and Victor Martinez.

Philadelphia 8 Detroit 5. Defense proves to be the key. Fielding errors by Detroit in the fourth preceded a three run homer by Odubel Herrera on a hanging slider. The Phillies took advantage of Anibal Sanchez's slow delivery to pull of a double steal of second and home in the second. Fielding plays by the Phillies in the fifth, sixth, and seventh innings kept runs off the board. Peter Bourjos's cut off Victor Martinez's RBI hit to hold him to a single and prevent the tying at that point from scoring. Hard hit balls in the sixth were cut off to prevent any rally from starting. Julio Iglesias was thrown at first to prevent the tying run from coming to the plate in the eighth inning.

Sanchez also allowed a home run to Bourjos on a hanging sinkerball.

Oakland 12 Detroit 3. The bullpen falls apart leaving pitches over the plate in surrendering the final nine Oakland runs. The A's had three home runs, though two were against starter Matt Boyd. Detroit hurt its cause swinging at sliders out of the strike zone. Ian Kinsler was also thrown out at the plate trying to score on a passed ball after successfully stealing third base.

Oakland 4 Detroit 2. A sixth inning double play would not be enough to bail out Mike Pelfrey. Ian Kinsler booted a groundball to allow the first of three runs to score. A two run single followed. Detroit also hurt itself by not be able to score additional runs in the second and third innings.

New York Yankees 2 Tampa Bay 1. Yankees break up a no hit bid by Tampa Bay pitcher Jake Odorizzi. Odorizzi took a no hitter into the seventh until leaving a 91 mph fastball over the plate that Starlin Castro launched over the left center field fence. The hit came after Brett Gardner worked a seven pitch walk.

Los Angeles Angels 5 Detroit 1. Los Angeles uses a five run eighth inning to break up a pitcher's duel between Justin Verlander and Jhoulys Chacin. Neither team got a baserunner until the fifth inning. A seventh inning groundout ended Detroit's first chance. A fielder's choice and a throwing error by James McCann gave the Angels their second and third runs.
