Live Tigers blog: Rays add to lead in 7th

Kevin Kiermaier's solo home run to lead off the bottom of the seventh inning added to the lead for the Rays.

Kiermaier sent Warwick Saupold's 0-1 pitch over the wall in straightaway center field, to make it 6-1.

Saupold got Evan Longoria to fly out to a leaping JaCoby Jones in left center field for the first out, before hitting Rickie Weeks. He then got the next two Rays in order to end the inning.

7th-inning stretch: Rays 5, Tigers 1

Very little has gone right for the Tigers so far.

After six and a half innings, the Rays lead 5-1.
