Detroit Tigers buoyed by Pirates errors in 3-2 Game 1 win

Detroit Tigers shortstop Javier Baez put the ball in play with runners on second and third and two outs in the fifth inning.

Good things followed, but not because of Baez’s bat.

Pittsburgh Pirates third baseman Ke’Bryan Hayes fouled out on Baez’s goalie clean field. The ball went over him and into left field, allowing them to score two runs.

The Tigers beat the Pirates, 3-2, in Game 1 of Wednesday’s doubleheader. Detroit improved to 8-14, with Game 2 scheduled to start at 4:30 p.m.
