A.J. Hinch's first month as Detroit's manager was rough. Harold Castro hit an RBI single in the bottom of the 10th inning off Craig Kimbrel to give the Tigers a 9-8 victory over the Chicago Cubs on Saturday. Detroit rallied from deficits of 2-0, 4-3, 7-6 and 8-7 to win a back-and-forth game in which neither starting pitcher made it past the third.
Kyle Hendricks took a shutout into the ninth inning and the Chicago Cubs defeated the Detroit Tigers 5-1 on Sunday. Hendricks (3-4) allowed eight hits and struck out a season-high eight in eight-plus innings without allowing a walk. Hendricks left after Harold Castro and Miguel Cabrera started the ninth with singles.
