Last night’s loss makes the fourth in a row for Detroit, and they have
dropped nine of their last fifteen games. It is the fourth time they
have been shut out this season.

Rick Porcello was tagged with the loss, and his record falls to 4-5.

DONTRELLE WILLIS

After the game, the Tigers announced that Dontrelle Willis had been
designated for assignment. Willis had tried to overcome a number of
personal issues, and this spring it seemed as though he had righted his
ship. He was given the opportunity to be a part of the rotation at the
start of the season. But uncertainty remained every time he was on the
mound.

The move will make room for the return of pitcher Max Scherzer (1-4,
7.29), who will start in tomorrow’s game.

Oakland will counter with Dallas Braden (4-4, 3.23). Braden pitched a
perfect game on Mother’s Day.

NOTES

  • Trying

    to change his luck, Gerald Laird is now sporting the number 12 on his
    jersey. Previously, he wore the number 8 on his back. Unfortunately in
    his first at-bat, he was robbed of a home run by Athletics left fielder,
    Gabe Gross.

  • Rookie

    Brennan Boesch had the night off. He was replaced in the lineup by Ryan
    Raburn.
