Reds: From sweeper to sweepee? Ouch

Tigers 5 Reds 1

From sweeper to sweepee. What a table turn after taking three from the Yankees in NY.

Tigers ace Tarik Skubal made his case to Star the All-Star game: 7 IN, 3 H, 1 R, 0 BB, career high 13 K.

How important was Sunday? David Bell pulled Ashcraft with 2 outs in the 5th to try and stop a threat, already down 1-0. He went to Alexis Diaz in the 8th to try and keep the deficit at 2-1.

Offense: 4 H, 0 BB, 15 K. Outhit 12-4. A Tigers error and wild pitch in the 7th led to the Reds only run.

Austin Wynns: 2B. That’s 4 2B in 6 plate appearances, more than Friedl/Maile/Espinal and = Martini. He’s the first Red w/ four doubles for his first four hits since Billy Martin, 1960 (Per Bally).

Jeimer Candelario: 2B, R

Noelvi Marte: 0-3, 2 K, RBI. 5th throwing error in 10 games.

Steer: 2B

Ashcraft: 4.2 IN, 6 H, 1 R, 3 BB, 2 K, 80 pitches/47 strikes. Exited w/ 2 outs and man on in 5th with LH Riley Greene up.
Hitters w/ .958 OPS when facing him a 3rd time. 1st .759, 2nd .700. 3 BB first 3 innings. 3 hits opened the 3rd = R.

3 run 8th, all unearned…after 5 run 8th on Saturday
Moll: 0.1…..Martinez 2.0, R
8th: Diaz 1.0, 3 unearned runs, Marte error, McKinstry 2-R HR. Turned into a 23 pitch inning, probably making Diaz unavailable Monday.

How they scored:
7th Marte RBI groundout, 2-1 Tigers
