Live Tigers blog: Rays go deep twice in 8th

Things are looking awfully bleak for the Tigers.

Warwick Saupold gave up a pair of home runs in the bottom of the eighth inning -- both solo homers -- to make the Tigers deficit even larger.

The first one, of the leadoff variety, was hit by Daniel Robertson -- his first-career home run -- to make it 7-1. Then, Steven Souza Jr. hit a line drive to left field, not far from where Ian Kinsler's went in the first inning, to make it 8-1.

The Tigers are down to their last three outs.

Tigers put two on in 8th, strand them

The Tigers had the makings of a rally in the top of the eighth, putting two runners on for the first time of the afternoon.
