Even Tim Anderson’s outs are scorched. He sent a 105.2 mph ball back at Daniel Norris, who snared it and threw to first for the final out of the sixth.

Bulletin. The Tigers have gotten Tim Anderson out. His ground ball up the middle nearly took Dan Norris’ face off, but he gloved it and threw Anderson out at first. Solid four innings of work for D-No. One bad pitch, two-run double by Abreu.

Jonathan Schoop is 5 for 7 in this series. The Tigers as a team have 11 hits in the series

Harold Castro left tonight’s game with left hamstring tightness.

Harold Castro was limping after that last out. Victor Reyes replaces him in right field.

the “he’s going to get hurt” crowd is alive an well in the comments.

VIc Reyes going into RF

Harold Castro came up limping as he tried to beat out a ground ball. Looks like he’s coming out of the game. He’s got one of the Tigers’ three hits

8-18-2000, the Tigers beat the A’s 10-1. Bobby Higginson homered in the 1st for his birthday. Hideo Nomo struck out 8 & allowed just 2 hits over 7 innings. Rich Becker had 3 hits, a home run & 3 RBI.

Two-out walk to Yoan Moncada comes back to haunt Daniel Norris, but he probably should’ve had an 0-2 count on him.

A clean, nine-pitch inning with two Ks for D-No.

Norris throwing 95 mph fluidly. He’s going to end up being a very valuable piece — with Fulmer and Skubal working short innings. Alexander, too

Tarik Skubal’s MLB debut ends with 4 runs on 7 hits over 2 innings with a walk and a strikeout. Fastball reached 97 mph, but no called strikes on any secondary pitches. PItching coach Rick Anderson still talking with him in dugout an inning later.

Final line for Detroit Tigers left-hander Tarik Skubal in his MLB debut: 2 IP, 7 H, 4 ER, 1 BB, 1 K. 52 pitches (33 strikes).
Daniel Norris enters in the third inning.

Daniel Norris enters for the third inning. Gardy worried about bringing in another lefty against the RHH White Sox lineup, but there are no better right-handed options.
