These are not fun times for the losing Tigers.
Over the weekend, they got swept by the Texas Rangers down in Texas, leaving their abysmal record at 32-75. They sit in last place, 35 games out of first.
On Sunday, it was the same old story, with the Tigers losing 9-4.
Anthony Fenech of the Detroit Free Press writes:
This game had its share of sloppiness from the Tigers, beginning in the first inning, when Harold Castro — playing center field — bobbled a ball and missed a cut-off man.
Jordan Zimmermann was touched up in the first inning, allowing two runs on three hits. The Tigers responded to take the lead when Niko Goodrum hit a two-run double in the top of the fifth, but couldn’t hang on.
The Tigers play the White Sox on Monday night at Comerica Park.
It's been a while since the Tigers have been home, and frankly, there aren't a lot of people who care. This is barely major league baseball.
