The Tigers are running very thin on starting pitching depth with the loss of Spencer Turnbull to UCL surgery. Hens starter Drew Hutchison is making a pretty good case to be the next man up. Hutchison didn’t get much run support, and he didn’t need it, allowing just three hits and no walks, while punching eight tickets in a seven inning shutout performance on Thursday evening.
The Hens did give him a slim lead in the first inning when Aderlin Rodriguez singled home Renato Nuñez. They didn’t score again until the sixth when a Kody Clemens solo shot made it 2-0.
