Once Again, Porcello Gets No Support

RHP Rick Porcello gave up runs again, which means he got beat again. Porcello threw 5 2/3 innings Tuesday night, and he allowed three runs — three runs more than the Tigers were able to muster for him. Porcello has not had a run scored for him while he was the pitcher of record in 23 innings, four starts plus the sixth inning Aug. 12 in Texas. Porcello was wise enough not to want to talk about that and acknowledge he wasn’t perfect. “I got to do a better job of commanding the strike zone, keeping the ball down. At this time of year you’ve just got to win games, at least win series,” he said.

–3B/1B Miguel Cabrera hit a two-run home run on the first pitch he saw in the sixth inning Tuesday night, his 34th of the season. Cabrera ended the game as Detroit’s first baseman, the second time he has appeared at his previous position this season. Cabrera switched from third to first when manager Jim Leyland pinch-hit for starting 1B Don Kelly in the seventh inning.
