    Tarik Skubal shines; St. Louis Cardinals clip Detroit Tigers in 10


    St. Louis, Mo. — The Tigers were down to their last strike in the ninth inning, one strike away from wasting a brilliant pitching performance by rookie lefty Tarik Skubal.

    Trailing 2-1 with two outs in the ninth, Miguel Cabrera walked off the bench and lined a double to right field off Cardinals closer Alex Reyes. The Tigers didn’t have another bench player to pinch-run for him, which seemed ominous at the time. 

    Tigers starting pitcher Tarik Skubal racked up 10 strikeouts on Wednesday.

    Harold Castro, the third straight pinch-hitter used by manager AJ Hinch in the ninth, got behind in the count 1-2. First he lined a ball just foul down the left field line. But on the next pitch, he drilled a single up the middle and Cabrera scored without a play at the plate — tie game.

    BOXSCORE: Cardinals 3, Tigers 2 (10 innings)

    It was a repeat of Castro’s two-strike, game-tying pinch-hit in Toronto on Sunday. Only this time the Tigers didn’t complete the comeback.
