Detroit Tigers second basemen Jonathan Schoop goes 4-for-4 as Garrett Hill wins in his major league debut.
Over the last few seasons, the Cleveland Guardians have dominated the season series against the Detroit Tigers. In 2019, Detroit went 1-19 against Cleveland and are 10-19 since heading into 2022. However, this season has been a different story as Detroit improves to 4-2 against Cleveland with a 4-1 victory.
Garrett Hill made history as he became the first Detroit Tigers pitcher to toss six innings and allow two hits or fewer. Bo Naylor was the last Cleveland batter to register a hit off Tigers pitching when he hit his 11th home run of the season in the 4th inning.
The bullpen trio of Andrew Chafin, Michael Fulmer and Gregory Soto held it down three scoreless frames. For Chafin, it adds to an impressive line of work over the last two weeks. 7IP, 1ER, 1H, 9K, 3BB.
Jonathan Schoop had his second three hit game, his first since May 29th as he finished the day going 4-for-4. Willi Castro went 2-for-4 and Miguel Cabrera drove in two on hit number 3,060. That hit ties him with Craig Biggio for 25th all time.
Alex Faedo, who is serving as the 27th man, will start the nightcap of the doubleheader. That game starts at 6:40PM.
