Trevor Williams’ return to the rotation could be considered awful. However, when your team rallies for a win, everything is a little rosier.
Williams was tagged for seven runs and nine hits in five innings Wednesday night after being activated from the injured list before the game. However, the right-hander got taken off the hook for the loss when the Pirates came back from a 7-1 deficit to beat the Tigers 8-7 at PNC Park. You can read more about the game here.
The Tigers scored twice in the first inning then put up a five spot in a third inning that included back-to-back home runs from Niko Goodrum and Brandon Dixon. Raise your hand if you knew Goodrum and Dixon were big-league players. Now raise your hand if you knew Goodrum and Dixon were the Nos. 4 and 5 hitters in the Tigers’ lineup.
