    Bucs Dugout: Redbeard, Pirates scuttle the Tigers in ten

    MLB

    The Pirates struggled to support Trevor Williams, who turned in his usual good start, but they got flawless relief work and took their second straight ten-inning game from the Tigers, this one 3-2.

    The Pirates were helpless against Detroit's Spencer Turnbull, a decent-ish prospect (characterized by Baseball America as having a chance to compete for the bullpen) making his seventh career start. They flailed away to little effect, getting just two hits and two walks against him in six innings. The only run came in the fourth when Tigers' shortstop Ronny Rodriguez batted away a Jung Ho Kang grounder for an error that let Josh Bell score from second.

    Bless You Boys: Pirates 3, Tigers 2: Bullpen falters late in extra innings loss

    MLB

    Wednesday night's game between the Tigers and the Pirates was a bit of a pitchers duel. Although both starters exited after six innings, their performances and the bullpens that followed allowed this game to remain closely contested throughout in what ultimately became a 3-2 Pittsburgh victory.

    After a walk and a single in the first inning with two outs, Tigers starter Spencer Turnbull struck out Melky Cabrera to retire the side. The Tigers threatened in the third inning, but failed to cash in on that chance. The Pirates scored the first run of the game in the fourth after Josh Bell walked and Melky Cabrera singled; the run scored on a fielding error by Ronny Rodriguez after a ball was put in play by Jung Ho Kang.

    The Detroit News: Tigers comeback goes for naught, Pirates win in 10 innings

    MLB

    Detroit -- The Tigers caught a struggling closer in the nick of time Tuesday night, but they let him up off the ropes.

    The result: With two outs and a man on in the 10th inning, Starling Marte, who had been scuffling in the early part of the season, blasted a first-pitch hanging slider from Shane Greene into the visitor's bullpen in left-center field.

    The blast gave the Pirates a 5-3 win, extending the Tigers losing streak to four games.

    The Tigers had a golden chance to win the game in the bottom of the ninth.

    Detroit Free Press: Detroit Tigers observations: Miscues, not enough offense in loss to Pirates

    MLB

    It was a similar story, with a different ending.

    Matthew Boyd pitched well. The Detroit Tigers' offense didn't help him out. A couple of close plays went against the Tigers. It looked like a loss.

    But, down a run in the bottom of the ninth inning, Christin Stewart doubled and Jeimer Candelario singled to tie it. Still, it went down as a loss.

    Despite Boyd's seven strong innings and the Tigers' ninth inning comeback, Shane Greene allowed a two-run home run to Starling Marte in the 10th inning and the Pirates beat the Tigers, 5-3.
