DETROIT (WKZO) - Drew Smyly started a second time in a row and the Tampa Bay Rays broke the Detroit Tigers' four-game winning streak with a 6-3 win Friday at Comerica Park
. Smyly allowed six extra-base hits and five earned runs in 5 innings.
Tigers scored twice in the sixth inning to close in on the Rays' lead to 5-3 but could have done more damage after loading the bases with nobody out and chasing starter Alex Cobb.
When Victor Martinez was hit by a pitch, the Tigers scored one in the fourth. Relievers Blaine Hardy and Patrick McCoy each pitched one scoreless inning.
The Tigers will face the Tampa Bay Rays once again tomorrow, July 5, 2014. The Broadcast will begin at 3:40pm on AM 590 WKZO.
