Missed chances and fielding mistakes by Tampa Bay give Detroit an 8-7 win in 13 innings. The Rays missed chances in the 4rth getting two on without a run scoring, another in the 7th after one run scored, and loaded the bases with no outs in the ninth, but could one get one run when Rajai Davis dropped a flyball. After Tampa Bay scored in the top of the seventh to take a 6-5 lead, they allowed the tying run to score on a single, two wild pitches, and throwing error by the catcher when the ball sailed into foul territory. The winning run came in the bottom of the 13th on single, a mishandled sacrifice bunt that put runners at first and second with no outs, another sacrifice bunt, and a sacrifice fly.

Tampa Bay takes advantage of Kyle Lobstein's failure to adjust in an 8-0 win over Detroit. Lobstein got through the Rays' batting order allowing only one hit, but the second time through, he was roughed up for 5 runs on a total of seven hits including two of Tampa Bay's four solo home runs. Detroit also missed chances in the 1st, 3rd, 5th, and 8th innings. A leaping catch by Brandon Guyer in the third against J.D. Martinez on the warning track ended that threat. Detroit was 0 for 7 with runners in scoring position.

A combination of the longball and baserunning misadventures gives Cleveland a 7-5 win over Detroit. Abraham had the first home run for Cleveland and Michael Brantley had goahead shots in the seventh and innings, the second on a hanging changeup from Blaine Hardy. The bullpen has allowed eight home runs to Cleveland and Detroit is up to a major league worst 173 longballs alllowed.

Lonnie Chisenhall had three outfield assists for Cleveland, two on the same play. After a run had scored, firstbaseman Carlos Santana cut off the throw from right field and caught Anthony Gose in a rundown and was tagged out by Chisenhall who came in to cover and caught Andrew Romine at the plate. Chisenall would nail Gose at the plate in the seventh. In the eighth, Victor Martinez would be forced to stop at third on a double high off the wall.

Detroit pushes across two runs in the bottom of the 12th inning to give Detroit a 5-4 win over Kansas City. Justin Verlander pitched 8 2/3 innings allowing two runs. The bullpen failed once again when Alex Wilson's hanging slider to Salvador Perez found the Kansas City bullpen. The Royals scored in the top of the 12th on a groundball to Ian Kinsler whose only play was to first. Anthony led off the bottom half with a single. After one out, Miguel Cabrera singled sending Gose to third. Cabrera took second when no one covered the bag. An intentional walk to Victor Martinez followed and reliever Greg Holland got a needed strikeout, but walked Tyler Collins with the bases loaded to force in the tying run. Dixon Machado lined a 2-2 slider down the left field line for the game winning hit.

Ian KInsler lines a 1-2 curveball into the Kansas City bullpen in the bottom of the 11th inning to Detroit a 5-4 win. Kinsler's shot bailed out a bullpen that twice couldn't hold one run leads. Al Alburqurque's two strike wild pitch that Alex Avila tired to block with his glove instead of his body allowed the tying run in the seventh and an RBI hit gave the Royals the lead. After Victor Matinez made no mistake on a 3-1 fastball meant to be low and away, Bruce Rondon made a mistake with a fastball to Eric Hosmer meant to be further up in the zone in hopes of making Hosmer chase it.

Matt Boyd pitched six innings allowing two runs on three hits, but two them were mistakes that found the seats.

Rajai Davis' two out triple following a walk gives Detroit a 2-1 win over Chicago White Sox in 10 innings. Detroit had come within two outs of a combined no-hitter when Neftali Feliz surrendered a triple to Tyler Saladino and single to Adam Eaton. The Tigers missed a chance in the first when Victor Martinez grounded into a doubleplay one three turned by the White Sox. They missed a chance to add to their lead after scoring in the seventh with one out.

Closer Bruce Rondon was sent home for the season for effort issues. He was five for nine in save opportunities and was largely inconsistent.

Berra helped the Yankees reach 14 World Series winning 10 times and played in more World Series games than any other player at 75. He was also a three time American League MVP and was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1972. Berra caught the only perfect game in postseason history in Game 5 of the 1956 Series and will be best remembered for his Yogi-isms.

A bullpen meltdown by Minnesota gives Detroit a 6-4 win. The Twins got only two hits and all four of their runs in the fifth on two walks and a throwing error by Nick Castellanos on an attempted force at second base. Eddie Rosario hit a bases loaded triple that was ruled fan interference when the ball hit a fan's glove and the glove fell on the playing field. Rosario scored on a popup to second baseman Ian Kinsler who was caught napping and his throw got past catcher James McCann. The Twins got their only other hit in the eighth after a fielding error by Miguel Cabrera, but wasted that chance.

Casey Fein allowed a groundrule double to Kinsler after a 14 pitch at bat by Rajai Davis that resulted in a flyout. Glen Perkins allowed a tying two run double to Victor Martinez. Perkins hung a 3-2 slider to Davis in the eighth that ended up in the right field seats.

Minnesota gets two runs in the seventh against starter Alfredo Simon enroute to a 6-2 win over Detroit. Kyle Lobstein hung a changeup to Eduardo Escobar in the ninth to account for the Twins' final two runs. Doubleplays eliminated chances in the first and sixth innings and Detroit missed other chances in the 2nd, 8th, and 9th innings. After Detroit had scored twice to tie the game in the fourth, a failure to execute the safety squeeze forced Nick Castellanos to remain at third when Dixon Machado failed to get the ball past the pitcher.

Minnesota takes advantage of Randy Wolf's struggle with location in a 7-1 win over Detroit. Wolf got too many pitches up and over the plate in a six run second inning for the Twins and was charged with all six runs on seven hits, four earned. Nick Castellanos booted a potential double play ground ball after Eduardo Nunez had opened the second with a single. Ervin Santana kept Detroit off balance moving pitches around the strike zone which resulted in missed chances in the first, second, fourth, and seventh innings after Detroit scored its only run in the seventh.

Detroit's bullpen which entered the game with a 4.52 earned run average, second worst in the American League, shut down the Twins the rest of the way allowing only a solo shot to Byron Buxton in the eighth.

Justin Verlander shuts down Texas on one run in six innings of work in a 7-4 Detroit win. The bullpen once again couldn't keep the Rangers off the board though they were able to make pitches when they needed to. Texas missed chances in the 4rth, 5th, 6th, 7th, and 9th innings. After surrendering a home run to Prince Fielder, Verlander worked out a bases loaded no out jam by inducing a shallow flyout and two strikeouts. Texas would leave a runner at second after a run had scored, and Detroit needed three pitchers to finish the ninth inning loading bases. Neftali Feliz surrendered a two run single to Fielder but was able to induce a game ending doubleplay.

Texas takes advantage of a struggling Daniel Norris and a lax defense to take a 7-6 win over Detroit. After J.D. Martinez opened the scoring in the first inning on a two run homer on a fastball, Texas was able to force Norris throw 54 pitches in the bottom half. Two of Detroit's four errors allowed the Rangers to score five runs. Rajai Davis would get picked off first to end the second after Detroit had scored two runs to close to 5-4. Cole Hamels was charged with six runs in six innings of work, but was able settle down after the third and Detroit could do little against Texas' bullpen.

Detroit had one last chance in the ninth, but with runners at first and third, Davis on his own attempted a squeeze bunt, but was sniffed out by a high fastball that Davis popped up. Drew Stubbs ran down a drive by Ian Kinsler to end the game. The Tigers also left a runner at second in the sixth.
