Tigers slip by sloppy Pirates 5-4, snap 4-game losing streak

PITTSBURGH (AP) Nicholas Castellanos trotted home when a potential double play in the eighth turned into an RBI fielder's choice thanks to some indecisiveness by Pittsburgh second baseman Adam Frazier, allowing the Detroit Tigers to edge the Pirates 5-4 on Tuesday night.

The Tigers loaded the bases off Kyle Crick (2-3) with one out when Brandon Dixon hit a grounder that rolled under Crick's glove right to Frazier. Instead of flipping to shortstop Kevin Newman in hopes of turning an inning-ending double play, Frazier tried to tag Detroit's Christin Stewart between first and second. Stewart backed off to avoid the tag, breaking up the play and forcing for Frazier to settle for one out instead of two.

Detroit's shaky bullpen made it stand up, barely. Buck Farmer (4-4) earned the win despite giving up Newman's tying RBI triple in the seventh. Joe Jimenez survived a bases-loaded jam in the eighth. Shane Greene earned his American League-leading 21st save by getting Josh Bell to hit into a game-ending double play as the Tigers snapped a four-game losing streak.
