Detroit Tigers stymied again by Texas Rangers, 7-0

Hearing boos at Comerica Park is normal these days, as the frustration from fans rolls on through June.

The product on the field is abysmal.

The Detroit Tigers’ offense has scored one run in the past 35 innings and is averaging 2.56 runs per game. The pitching staff – punching above its weight due to numerous injuries – can’t be expected to post zeros on the scoreboard every game.

Friday’s game was another example. The Tigers lost, 7-0, in the second of four games to the Texas Rangers, dropping to 24-40, still the third-worst record in the American League. The shutout was the 10th against the Tigers in 2022, in just 64 games.

“It sucks,” manager AJ Hinch said. “There’s no way for me to answer the same questions every night and give credit to the same pitchers every night. We’re all tired of it, but we’re going to wake up tomorrow with the same challenge. We have to continue Try to do better. I don’t have a better answer. Usually I do, but I don’t. We can’t make this bad this long. That’s obvious. “

The Tigers recorded five hits but did not draw a walk.

Willi Castro, pressed into emergency duty replacing Austin Meadows, finished 2-for-4 with one strikeout.

The losing streak is at six games. Detroit has been outscored 54-11 in its past eight games, with two games left in this 10-game homestand.
