Detroit — With a runner at third and one out in the eighth inning, Dawel Lugo hit a screamer, 101 mph off his bat, directly at first baseman Matt Olson.

Runner stranded.

Runner at first, two outs in the ninth, one baserunner away from having Niko Goodrum pinch-hitting and representing the tying run, Christin Stewart, mired in an 0-for-19 drought, laced a pitch, 102 mph off the bat.

Again, it was hit right at Olson, who deftly scooped it up and turned it into a game-ending double-play.
