Athletics 17, Tigers 3: Dawel Lugo saves the day

On Thursday at Comerica Park, Dawel Lugo hit his first home run of the season, a three-run shot in the bottom of the ninth inning. If only the Tigers could have put in Matthew Stafford to finish the fourth quarter comeback, they might have snapped their losing streak. Detroit lost by two touchdowns against the Oakland Athletics, 17-3.

Where did it all go wrong, you may ask? Well, everything went wrong at practically every point imaginable in this game. If you want details, let me say this; Spencer Turnbull allowed six runs today, with only one of those runs being earned.
