    Kiermaier, Phillips, Arozarena homer, Rays beat Tigers 8-1

    Kevin Kiermaier, Brett Phillips and Randy Arozarena homered and drove in two runs each, Shane McClanahan struck out seven in seven innings and the Tampa Bay Rays beat the Detroit Tigers 8-1 on Tuesday night. Ji-Man Choi also drove in two runs for the Rays, who broke Detroit's four-game winning streak before an announced crowd of just 8,475, Tampa Bay's lowest at home since April 29. “It’s always a treat to see,” said McClanahan of the Rays' three-homer, 11-hit offense.

    Castro homers in 9th, Tigers top Rays 3-2 for 4th straight

    Harold Castro hit his first home run of the year with two outs in the ninth inning, a tiebreaking shot that sent the Detroit Tigers past the Tampa Bay Rays 3-2 on Monday night for their season-best fourth straight victory. Jonathan Schoop hit a two-run homer that put Tigers rookie Alex Faedo in position for his first major league win, but Brett Phillips helped the Rays erase their 2-0 deficit with a home run in the sixth and a leadoff double against Fulmer in the eighth.
