    Detroit Tigers rack up 16 hits in 5-3 win vs. White Sox

    Detroit Tigers outfielder Akil Baddoo isn’t his best against left-handed pitching, but the rookie hopes to change that moving forward.

    Manager AJ Hinch gave Baddoo, a lefty hitter, his latest challenge with 11 games remaining: Chicago White Sox left-hander Dallas Keuchel, the 2015 American League Cy Young, 2017 World Series champion and two-time All-Star over his 10-year career.

    Baddoo recorded RBI singles in the third and fourth innings, increasing his batting average to .233 (20-for-86) against left-handers, but the Tigers didn’t produce runs from other sources until scoring three in the seventh inning of Tuesday’s 5-3 victory — providing a four-game winning streak — in front of a scarce crowd at Comerica Park.

    First pitch occurred at 1:10 p.m. — instead of the originally scheduled 6:40 p.m. — due to heavy rain expected in the evening.

    WINDSOR: Tigers shrugged off gut-punch vs. AL’s best. Here’s why this is hardly a fluke

    Daz Cameron #41 of the Detroit Tigers scores and celebrates with his teammate Jonathan Schoop #7 during the third inning of the game against the Chicago White Sox at Comerica Park on Tuesday, Sept. 21, 2021 in Detroit, Michigan.

    The Tigers (74-78) finished with 16 hits, three walks and four strikeouts, getting six multihit performances: Baddoo (2-for-5, two RBIs), Robbie Grossman (2-for-5, one walk), Jeimer Candelario (2-for-4), Niko Goodrum (2-for-4, one RBI), Daz Cameron (3-for-3, one walk) and Victor Reyes (4-for-4, two RBIs).

    In the seventh inning, Goodrum broke the 2-2 tie with a two-out single off lefty reliever Jace Fry. Singles from Grossman and Candelario started the inning with momentum, but Eric Haase into a double play as  Grossman reached third base.

    Ensuing walks drawn by Cameron and Isaac Paredes loaded the bases, and Reyes capitalized by producing a two-run single off Aaron Bummer for a 5-2 lead.

    Detroit is 65-54 since May 8 and 34-27 since the All-Star break, winning nine of its past 12 contests.
