(DETROIT) – Robbie Grossman homered and drove in four runs as the Detroit Tigers beat the Texas Rangers 7-3 Sunday to split the four-game series. ...... {LISTEN}. The Tigers and their league-worst offense scored five or more runs in consecutive games for the first time this season. Detroit had lost six straight before winning 14-7 Saturday. Tigers manager A.J. Hinch had to watch most of the game from the clubhouse — he was ejected by home-plate umpire Jansen Visconti in the third inning after Grossman was called out on strikes. For the second day in a row, the Rangers hit a homer in the first. Corey Seager staked Texas to an early lead, only to see Grossman homer during a three-run reply in the bottom of the inning. Dane Dunning (1-5) walked Victor Reyes to start the bottom of the first, then hit Harold Castro before Grossman slugged his second homer in 24 hours and second of the season. Drew Hutchinson started for the Tigers, but was removed in the fifth inning. Alex Lange (4-1) came in and gave up a hit to Adolis Garcia that drove in a run to tie the game. Detroit regained the lead in the bottom of the fifth. Harold Castro left the game in the sixth inning after being hit in the leg by Dunning's pitch in the first. Hinch said he's day-to-day. The Tigers designated Hutchison for assignment after the game. They will activate 3B Jeimer Candelario from the injured list before Monday's game in Boston.
