Andriese outpitches Fulmer as Rays beat Tigers 5-1

  • Tampa Bay Rays Derek Norris lines an RBI single off Detroit Tigers starting pitcher Michael Fulmer during the sixth inning of a baseball game Tuesday

Victor Martinez, Justin Upton and Jose Iglesias each chipped in a base hit in the losing effort. "Iggy kind of hit second base awkwardly and fell". "You've just got to bounce back at that point, and move on".

Iglesias stayed down on the field for moments after the game, as Brad Miller's knee collided with his jaw as he slid into a collision on the basepaths.

"I know I can do better than what was out there tonight", Fulmer said.

Tigers closer Francisco Rodriguez entered the ninth with a 7-6 lead, but quickly loaded the bases. Tim Beckham went 2 for 4 with a 2-run home run, while Kevin Kiermaier went 1 for 5 with an RBI double. Matt Andriese set the tone. The Rays would then score their first run off an infield dribbler to Nick Castellanos, who couldn't make a play for any out and chose to hang onto the ball.

Bullpen: Same old story: tight game, key guys struggle. "That was a big blow to us and they had all the momentum", Kiermaier said. "I go out, take it game by game and at-bat by at-bat and try to help my team win the ballgame". "For us to have our backs against the wall and come out on top, that was huge".

Pruitt, who came in with a 15.88 ERA in his first six appearances, threw 3 1/3 innings of scoreless, one-hit relief, striking out five batters.

But after the Rays switched relievers, Jose Iglesias and Kinsler walked to load the bases. He then found his earlier self and breezed through the next two innings without giving up a hit, putting himself in life for the win.

"The source of the confusion was coming from the stands", Ausmus explained.

"I'm not really thinking about the opportunity I get to play - I don't want to put any pressure on myself", Beckham said.

"But it wasn't the outfielders that called it".

"Crazy things happen in this game", Zimmermann said. "We changed our signals".

RHP Michael Fulmer took a line drive off his calf during Tuesday's game, and Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said it was a factor in him pulling Fulmer after six innings, though he didn't expect it to impact his next scheduled start. It was also their first game outside of the AL East this season. Alex Wilson gave up rockets left and right, but escaped only allowing one run. He advanced to third on Evan Longoria's double. Steven Souza followed with a one-out RBI single to make it 2-0 early against Zimmermann.

Derek Norris finished the game going 2-for-4 including a RBI single in the sixth inning to push the Rays lead to 3-1.

Archer pitched well, striking out nine but lasting only five innings, throwing 104 pitches.

1B Miguel Cabrera celebrated his 34th birthday with a solo home run in the first inning, the Tigers' only run on the night.
