ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. – Daniel Norris had two significant streaks snapped in this afternoon’s 8-1 loss to the Rays. He was oblivious to both.
For the first time in 22 starts, the Tigers left-handed pitcher allowed more than three earned runs. It was the longest active streak in the major leagues, dating back to Aug. 7, 2015 against the Red Sox.
Norris (1-1) allowed five runs – four earned – on eight hits in 4 2/3 innings. He struck out four and walked two for the defensively deficient Tigers (8-7).
“The whole day, my stuff felt pretty good,” he said.
