"We've just got to keep battling. It's tough. It's really frustrating." The Tigers may be trying too hard to get their offense going. Football Handicappers. Third base coach Dave Clark waved home Gordon Beckham from second base on a single with no outs in the third. Beckham was ruled out on a close play."When you're not scoring runs, you try to force the issue," Gardenhire said. "That happens sometimes. He's just being aggressive and no one's probably more upset about it than him, that somebody got thrown out at home with no outs. I can promise you that." Turnbull (0-2, 4.80 ERA) hasn't given up more than three earned runs in his three starts this season but the right-hander only lasted four innings against Cleveland on April 11.His mound opponent, right-hander Trevor Williams (1-0, 2.45 ERA), has gone at least six innings in each of his three starts.

Mercer spent seven seasons with the Pirates."I told him and Jordy when they went over that they have the opportunity to live a fantasy. As a kid, I always wanted to wear the Old English D on my chest," Pittsburgh manager Clint Hurdle told "So, I'll have some envy watching them wear the uniform, but I'll look forward to our guys getting them out." Harrison is off to a very slow start, batting just .123."We love Josh. But I hope to get him out every time he comes up to the plate," Hurdle said. "And then we'll pull for him like heck the rest of the season, until he comes to our place." Pirates first baseman Josh Bell carries a six-game hitting streak into Wednesday's contest. He had a single in four at-bats on Tuesday.--Field Level Media
