After some late-inning dramatics last night, the Tigers were out of Thursday's 8-1 loss to the Rays early.
The Tigers got a leadoff home run from Ian Kinsler, but little else. The Rays scored three times in the second inning, once in the fifth and seventh and twice more in the eighth.
Daniel Norris (1-1) took the loss for the Tigers (8-7). He went 4 2/3 innings, allowing five runs (four earned) on four hits, while striking out four and walking two.
Nicholas Castellanos reached four times for the Tigers. He had three singles and a walk.
