Tigers Vs. Rays: Porcello, Moore Locked In Duel

The two young guns, Rick Porcello and Matt Moore, are cruising at Comerica Park as the Detroit Tigers and Tampa Bay Rays are tied 1-1 after five innings.

Both runs were scored in the third inning where in the top half Porcello walked Evan Longoria with the bases loaded. The Tigers quickly responded, though, as Austin Jackson scored on a Moore wild pitch in the bottom of the inning.

While both pitchers have kept the bats in check, they have also been a little bit wild. Porcello has walked three batters while Moore has given up five free passes.

In the bottom of the fifth, Prince Fielder missed an opportunity to break the game open when he flew out to left field with the bases loaded and two outs.
