Athletics 4, Tigers 1: Matthew Boyd gets no help. Again.

Matthew Boyd didn’t have his strongest outing, allowing four runs in 6 13 innings, but it didn’t matter as the Detroit Tigers offense puttered to another poor performance in a 4-1 loss to the Oakland Athletics on Saturday afternoon.

Boyd’s final line wasn’t the best, but he struck out eight A’s hitters without allowing a walk. It was his fifth start of the year with at least eight strikeouts, and his first since May 3. The bullpen chipped in, holding the A’s scoreless over the final 2 23 frames of the contest.
