Kyle Gibson had his worst outing since Opening Day and it came at a bad time with the trade deadline less than two weeks away.
Overall Gibson finished his evening by allowing eight runs on ten hits and two walks with two strikeouts in five innings of work.
Gibson could have been perfect on the night and it wouldn’t have even mattered because the Rangers also didn’t score for a third straight contest and managed only four hits on the evening.
The Tigers scored an additional six runs off the Rangers’ bullpen and the team is still winless in the second half which has put them a season-worst 24 games below .500 and just three and a half games behind Baltimore for the worst record in the American League.
Player of the Game: As though it were even possible, it could have been worse for Texas tonight but the Tigers were insistent on running on Joey Gallo’s arm and he was happy to throw them out.
Up Next: RHP Dane Dunning is up next to be sacrificed to the Ranger meat grinder. Detroit will counter with LHP Tarik Skubal. Tuesday night’s first pitch from Comerica Park is scheduled for 6:10 pm CT.
