Tigers Vs. Pirates Final Score: Detroit Loses In Pittsburgh, 4-1

Miguel Cabrera's home run to left in the seventh inning was all the Detroit Tigers would get in terms of run production on Saturday, dropping their second straight game to interleague opponent Pittsburgh Pirates, this time 4-1.

The Tigers only produced four hits on the day, compared to the four runs on eight hits by Pittsburgh.

Andrew McCutchen hit a three-run homer in the fourth inning to give the Pirates their defining lead. An RBI single later in the game by Neil Walker pushed the Bucs' lead to 4-1.

Detroit and Pittsburgh will resume what's left of this series on Sunday.
