Detroit — The margins are so small these days for the Tigers.
Matthew Boyd, who is now the ace of the staff, pitched another solid game, solid enough certainly to stop the Tigers losing streak. But solid isn’t going to cut it, not with the offense sputtering the way it has on this homestand.
The Oakland Athletics hit a pair of home runs off Boyd and handed the Tigers a sixth straight home loss — 4-1.
The A’s have now beaten the Tigers 15 straight times, 10 straight at Comerica Park.
Boyd went 6 1/3 innings and struck out eight.
