Tigers unable to cash in early lead with 6-2 loss to Pirates

Post  Admin on Sun May 22, 2011 5:44 am



Once again, the Tigers couldn’t get the big hit they needed as the Pittsburgh Pirates’ steady No. 1 starter Kevin Correia didn’t let a fourth-inning hiccup get to him, hanging in against the Detroit Tigers until the offense picked him up in a 6-2 win.

The Tigers, who lost their fifth straight and Correia (6-4) limited Detroit to two runs over 6 2/3 innings, striking out four.

Detroit’s starting pitcher Max Scherzer (6-1) began the night tied for the American League lead in wins and looked dominant at times, retiring 10 straight during one stretch before fading in the sixth when the Pirates touched him up for three runs.

The 3rd game of this series will take place in Pittsburgh this Sunday afternoon at 1:35 pm.
