The Detroit Tigers finally snapped their losing streak which extended to eight games before prevailing over the Cleveland Guardians in the nightcap of a Monday doubleheader. The visitors got another solid start from Drew “Clutch” Hutchison but the offense struggled against the home team’s pitching, resulting in the loss. But the Olde English D got an admirable effort from converted reliever Bryan Garcia in Game 2, who played with fire but managed to keep up his Houdini act long enough to give his team a chance at the win.
Tuesday’s offering is just a single serving as the Motor City Kitties seek to start a winning streak if at all possible. It certainly is within the realm of possibility given the two starters lined up for this evening’s action, with the Tigers sending a rookie to the mound who is hanging on for dear life in the bogs while the Guards’ starter has had a rough go of it himself this season. Take a look below at a brief look at what is in store for tonight.
