(DETROIT) – After having Monday off, there was no improvement for the Detroit Tigers. Shane Bieber blanked the Tigers over seven innings, helping the Cleveland Guardians beat host Detroit 5-2 in the first game of a three game series. The Tigers are now 2-8 in their last 10 games and 25 games under .500 (43-68). After the game, the Tigers announced they were going to purchase the contract of the hottest hitter in the organization, 24 year old outfielder Kerry Carpenter. Manager A.J. Hinch says Carpenter will make his Major League debut Wednesday and will DH. Going into the ninth inning, the Tigers hadn't scored a run in 17 innings. They had 19 strikeouts and just one walk in that span. They managed just four singles and a walk in seven innings against Bieber, with eight strikeouts.
