Akil Baddoo 'developing' his base speed; Detroit Tigers add 2 pitchers to roster

PITTSBURGH — The Detroit Tigers tacked on their final run in the eighth inning of Sunday's 4-1 win over the Cincinnati Reds at Great American Ball Park. Akil Baddoo applied pressure with a leadoff walk.

The Tigers were business with Jonathan Schoop at the plate.

In an 0-2 count, Baddoo knew Schoop would be aggressive. He took off to steal second base but ended up scoring from first on Schoop's soft single to the outfield — between the center fielder and shortstop — for a 4-0 lead.

"He put in play like he always does," Baddoo said Monday.
