    Athletics bring the thump against Tarik Skubal, Tigers


    Detroit — The Oakland Athletics don’t lose at Comerica Park. True, they haven’t been here since 2019, but they haven’t lost here since 2016.

    They posted their 12th consecutive win in Detroit on Tuesday night, pounding rookie lefty Tarik Skubal and the Tigers 9-3. It was the Tigers fourth straight loss and their first losing month (12-14) since April.

    Athletics shortstop Josh Harrison puts the tag on Tigers' Derek Hill who is safe on his double in the third inning.

    They’ve lost five straight and 23 of their last 24 against Oakland.

    “I just didn’t feel synced up after the first inning,” said Skubal, whose three walks in five innings matched his total over his previous four starts and 22.2 innings. “My legs felt really light underneath me for some reason. I don’t know really know why. 

    “I just didn’t feel synced up and I couldn’t command my fastball really well to the glove side or arm side. … Just an overall frustrating outing for me. I’m not proud of that.”
