The Detroit Tigers (19-21) once again failed to win consecutive games after losing 4-3 to Pittsburgh Pirates (18-21) on Saturday after Pirates center fielder Andrew McCutchen tagged Tigers pitcher Drew Smyly with a pair of home runs to drive in all four runs for Pittsburgh.
After splitting the first two games of the weekend interleague series, the two teams will meet again Sunday afternoon to complete the series. Detroit will send Max Scherzer to the mound in an effort to outright win just their second series so far in May. The right-handed Scherzer is 2-3 on the year with a 6.26 ERA in eight starts.
Pittsburgh will counter with right-hander Kevin Correia on the hill. In seven starts this season, Correia is 1-4 with a 4.50 ERA.
The game is scheduled to start at 1:05 p.m. ET and will be televised Fox Sports Detroit.
