The Tigers stole one on Friday night, beating Charlie Morton, 2–0.
Detroit didn’t charge any earned runs to Morton’s line. Tampa’s ace went seven, gave up three hits, and struck out 10 but an unearned run came across in the fourth. That was all Detroit would need.
Daniel Norris went the first three and Drew VerHagen piggybacked him with five scoreless. Joe Jimenez put two men on but got the save in the ninth.
Tampa Bay Rays
It’s a mini disaster for Tampa Bay, which had to have been banking on a win against the league-worst Tigers with Morton on the hill.
The offense managed just five hits and three of them came from one man: Matt Duffy. Eric Sogard, who entered the game early for Mike Brosseau, who left injured, had another.
Austin Pruitt was the long-man after Ryan Yarbrough the last time through the rotation. Yarbs is going on Saturday so I have to assume Pruitt will be the guy. He’s given up one run in six innings this month in two appearances out of the ‘pen.

Free Detroit Tigers vs. Tampa Bay Rays MLB Prediction: Tigers.
Detroit is just worth a shot here because of Tampa Bay’s lack of offense. The Tigers simply payout. That said, I doubt it happens.
