Manager Ron Gardenhire called it a punch in the gut. The staggering Detroit
Tigers now have to find a way to recover quickly and end their six-game losing
streak.

Nicholas Castellanos‘ three-run homer gave Detroit a 4-1 lead against the
Oakland A’s on Monday Cheap Customized Los

, but the bullpen couldn’t hold it. Oakland
finished off the rally with Jed Lowrie’s solo homer in the ninth inning against
Tigers closer Shane Greene.

The teams match up again on Tuesday night.



The Tigers’ slide began during a two-game series in Cincinnati. They were
outscored 26-3 while getting swept in a three-game series at Cleveland before
Monday’s late collapse.

“We all knew this was going to be a work in progress,” Gardenhire said.
“You’re going to go through some ups and downs.

“Believe me, these (ones) are getting kicked in the gut right here because we
really worked at it today and we had a lot of good moments. We didn’t have too
many in Cleveland. These are the ones the challenge you. These guys will learn
from this and we’ll get better from it, I hope Logan Cooke

, but it doesn’t make us feel any better today.
We’ll come back and regroup tomorrow.”

For the most part, the back end of Detroit’s bullpen has been reliable. Main
setup man Joe Jimenez hadn’t given up a run in nine one-inning appearances this
month before allowing three in the eighth. Greene hadn’t given up a run in 10 of
his previous 11 outings.

“That hadn’t happened in a long time,” Gardenhire said, referring to
Jimenez’s outing. “Probably early in the season was the last time he’s done
anything like that and kind of had to fight it a little bit. Who knows? Maybe
it’s because they haven’t been pitching enough lately. We went through a stretch
where we didn’t use those guys four or five days and maybe that’s it Pernell
McPhee Jersey Redskins
, a little rusty.”

Oakland’s power display continued as Stephen Piscotty homered earlier in the
game. The A’s have now homered in 26 straight road games, a major league
record.

Frankie Montas, who has been Oakland’s most effective starter for the past
month, will oppose Blaine Hardy in the second game of the four-game series.

Montas (4-1 Redskins Cheap Jerseys ,
2.41 ERA) has produced four quality starts in five outings since being recalled
from Triple-A Nashville in late May. He has allowed just one run in 14 2/3
innings in two road starts, including his last appearance at San Diego on
Wednesday.

The Padres only managed one run with five hits in 6 2/3 innings and Montas
had six strikeouts.

He’s 1-2 with a 7.88 ERA in three career outings against Detroit, including
two starts.

Hardy (3-1, 3.30 ERA) jumped into the Detroit rotation when Jordan Zimmermann
and Francisco Liriano were on the disabled list. With both of those veterans

, Hardy is now part of temporary six-man
rotation.

He made six consecutive starts and allowed two or fewer runs in five of them
before a relief appearance in Cincinnati on Wednesday. He faced four batters
against the Reds and recorded only one out.

Hardy has made 10 career relief appearances against the A’s, posting a 1-0
record and a 1.74 ERA.
