Tigers drop ball, series at Tropicana

The Rays collected solo home runs from center fielder Kevin Kiermaier, third baseman Daniel Robertson and right fielder Steven Souza Jr., who just missed the cycle on a monster 3-for-5 day with a homer, triple and double.

After giving up a solo home run to Tigers second baseman Ian Kinsler on the game's third pitch, Ramirez set down the next 11 batters. Overall, he retired 15 of the last 16 batters he faced, throwing 66 pitches (47 for strikes).

Tigers left-hander Daniel Norris, who gave up eight hits and five runs in 4 2/3 innings, lost for the first time in his career away from Detroit.
