Tigers 7, Reds 6: Tigers rise up in eighth to steal win in Cincy
The Tigers had six innings to cover with an injury-depleted bullpen Sunday night once Drew Smyly left with what manager Jim Leyland called the worst blister he’s ever seen. The Reds had Aroldis Chapman fresh to try for a six-out save with a three-run lead, and they had a home crowd behind him.
Everything suddenly flipped in the eighth inning on national television. It’s not crazy to wonder whether the resulting 7-6 victory might be the win that changes the Tigers’ fortunes. (MLB.com)
