An APPEARANCE BACK: Detroit Tigers stymied by Minnesota Twins’ trade due date pickups in 4-1 loss
EVALUATING THE DUE DATE: Detroit Tigers overlook offense at MLB trade due date, contributing to pressure of offseason
Game notes: Thursday night’s opener in between the Rays and Tigers showcases 2 groups that can see a light at the end of the tunnel. For the Rays, that light ideally causes an area in the MLB postseason, as they’re being in the last wild-card area, ahead of 4 groups within 3 video games getting in Thursday. The Tigers, at 22 video games under .500, are simply seeking to restore any sort of pride in the last 2 months.
Even though the Tigers offense has actually been, well, less than excellent basically the whole season, “Hittin” Harold Castro gathered 3 hits in Wednesday’s 4-1 loss to the Twins. Castro has actually reached base with a hit in 10 of his previous 11 video games, going back to July 21.
