CHICAGO (WWJ/AP) – Back to back errors in the eighth inning by the Detroit Tigers give the lead and win to the Chicago Cubs 4-3 on Tuesday night.
As heard on 97.1 The Ticket – Detroit’s shortstop Jhonny Peralta had back to back throwing errors allowing what would be the winning run in the eighth inning to score.
With two outs and two on, Tony Campana hit a grounder to Peralta, whose throw pulled Ramon Santiago off the bag at second. Starlin Castro then hit another grounder to Peralta and the veteran infielder threw wide of first, allowing Darwin Barney, who had three RBI’s of his own, to scamper home.
Carlos Marmol (1-2) got the last two outs of the eighth for the victory and Shawn Camp finished for his first save as the Cubs snapped a seven-game losing streak against Detroit in their first matchup since the Tigers swept a three-game series at Comerica Park from June 23-25, 2009.
