DETROIT, MI (WOIO) - The
dominant performance in Detroit was short lived, as the Tigers silenced Indians bats in a 4-1 victory on Saturday. Situational hitting, which has been a weakness throughout the season for the Tribe, was again a weakness in the loss, as they went just 2-for-9 on the day.
The bad news started before the game as Trevor Bauer was scratched from the mound with food poisoning, TJ House made the spot start and went just three innings, giving 3 earned runs and walking four. House now is 0-3 with an era of 12.60.. Victor Martinez did most of the damage, driving in three runs
Michael Bourn continues his struggles at the plate, going hitless in his four at bats for the second straight day.
The Indians conclude their series in Detroit on Sunday, with Carlos Carrasco expected to get the start.
