    Detroit Tigers’ Matthew Boyd takes his last hacks

    Cincinnati — What the heck was Matthew Boyd doing swinging the bat Saturday night?

    Yes, he delivered a solid opposite-field base hit in the fourth inning, his third career hit, but given what happened in Milwaukee earlier in the year, the Tigers were hoping he kept the bat on his shoulders.

    “I think he just reacted,” manager AJ Hinch said Sunday morning.

    Swinging the bat, both in preparation for his start in Milwaukee and in his three plate appearances on June 1 (he flew out, laid down a sacrifice bunt and walked), played a part in his left arm pain that put him on the injured list for more than two months.

    But there he was Saturday, taking his hacks.

    “It’s a fine line,” Hinch said. “We didn’t want to give away every single out and he took to two strikes. Ironically, we haven’t had a pitcher come up in a bunt situation yet. But I think it’s just reactionary for these guys.
