Tigers Vs. Cubs: Justin Verlander Gets First Win Since May 18

Dealing with his longest winless streak since 2009, Justin Verlander got exactly what he needed: a start against the Chicago Cubs. The reigning Cy Young award winner allowed two runs over eight innings in a 5-3 victory to record his sixth win of the season.

For aw hile, it seemed as though Verlander was destined for another no-decision, as the game remained 2-2 until the seventh inning. But Austin Jackson gave Detroit the lead an RBI single to left. Jackson added a two-run home run in the ninth inning to complete the scoring for the Tigers.

For Detroit, it is the first time since April the team has won back-to-back series. The Tigers will try to make it three in a row when they host the Colorado Rockies this weekend.

Tigers Vs. Cubs Final Score: Detroit Falls In Series Opener Against Chicago, 4-3

The Detroit Tigers had a three-run seventh inning that appeared to give them at least enough momentum to force extra innings against the Chicago Cubs on Tuesday night, but a throwing error on Jhonny Peralta in the eighth inning allowed Chicago to prevail with a 4-3 victory in the series opener.

Detroit trailed 3-0 going into the seventh inning, but that changed when Ramon Santiago hit an RBI single to left center field to score Delmon Young.

Then center fielder Austin Jackson dropped a two-RBI single to shallow left field that scored Peralta and Quintin Berry. Detroit just couldn't hold on in the end.

Carlos Marmol got the win for Chicago, while Phil Coke was charged with the losing effort.
