Another game, another listless loss for free-falling Tigers

Detroit — It took a little longer than it did on Thursday, but the result was the same.

Another game went quickly off the rails, as the Oakland Athletics scored five times in the fifth and sixth innings to beat the Tigers, 7-2, Friday at Comerica Park.

They’ve now been outscored 48-11 and are 0-5 on this homestand.

Tigers starter Daniel Norris was zipping along through four innings. He allowed a run in the fourth on a couple of softly-struck singles and a fielder’s choice ground out that the Tigers just missed turning into an inning-ending, run-saving double play.
