Riley Greene and Victor Reyes lead Detroit Tigers to 11-4 victory

The Detroit Tigers took advantage of mistakes.

Then they built on an early lead.

A big four-run second inning was fueled by a batter and a pair of field errors, but the Tigers wouldn’t have scored without hits, and without those big hits, they might not have won their third game in a row. against the Cleveland Guardians.

The Tigers kept their foot on the gas and smoked the Guardians, 11-4, as the offense attacked right-hander Cal Quantrill on Tuesday for six runs over their four innings and beat the bullpen for a handful of insurance points.

“We got a couple hits at the right time,” manager AJ Hinch said. “There were some big hits after a number of good hits where we made it work. … It’s the kind of offense we have to be, where we’re a little quick against a pitcher who’s been pretty decent.”

On Wednesday, the Tigers (33-47) will look to sweep the four-game series before a 12-game road trip against three American League Central teams: the Chicago White Sox (four games), Kansas City Royals (four games) and Guardians (four games).

“We know we desperately need wins,” receiver Eric Haase said. “To do it in the division, especially with these guys who are known to have given us tweaks in the past, it’s really huge. We’re just playing a better brand of baseball overall, so it’s good to see and I hope it continues.”
