Detroit Tigers win 1-0 on Wednesday over Cleveland Indians
DETROIT (AP) — On the same day the Tigers’ general manager Al Avila criticized his team’s defense, Detroit made enough plays in the field to win a game in which it had just three hits and scored once.
Niko Goodrum doubled, advanced on Jake Rogers’ bunt and scored on Robbie Grossman’s sacrifice fly in the eighth inning, and the Tigers beat the Cleveland Indians 1-0 on Wednesday night.
Detroit’s Jose Urena gave up three hits and three walks over 5 2/3 innings before exiting with a forearm injury.
Jose Cisnero, Michael Fulmer (4-3) and Gregory Soto completed the four-hitter, with Soto earning his fifth save.
