On a beautiful evening in downtown Detroit the Tigers couldn't generate any offense to support the strong outing of Kyle Ryan.   The Tigers dropped a 5-2 contest to the Cincinnati Reds in inter league play.   They now travel to Cincinnati to play the Reds for two more games.  

Miguel Cabrera got the Tigers on the scoreboard in the first inning with a RBI single to up his leading total to 48 RBI's so far in 2015.   Cabrera who went 1 for 2 on the evening with two walks moved into the American League lead in batting average to .345.  He now moved past former teammate Prince Fielder who now is batting .341.    Anthony Gose had two hits on the evening.

33,774 fans watched Kyle Ryan pitch a solid game giving up just five hits in 6 1/3 innings.   However 3 of those hits were solo home runs to the Reds.  Todd Frazier stroked two solo shots and Jay Bruce went back to back with Frazier in the fifth inning.  Ryan making his second start since being called up from Toledo had good command in this spot start.  Kyle had gone 0-5 in Toledo being promoted to the major league level for the left handed pitcher.

Detroit now stands at 34-31 in the Central Division 4 games behind the first place Kansas City Royals.   The Tigers also announced during the game that they had signed the #1 draft choice of the 2015 MLB draft  Beau Burrows a high school right handed pitcher from Texas.
