Detroit Tigers beat Texas Rangers, 4-2, for sixth win in a row

Casey Mize took the mound Monday. Tarik Skubal dominated Tuesday. And Matt Manning stepped up Wednesday.

“They want to take advantage of these opportunities,” manager AJ Hinch said. “They’re learning. They’re growing. But most importantly, they’re putting us in a position to win. That’s what their job is the day they have the ball.” 

The efforts from the rookie arms helped deliver the Detroit Tigers three consecutive wins over the Texas Rangers, the latest being a 4-2 victory Wednesday — ignited by three home runs — in front of 21,132 fans at Comerica Park in the third of four games in the series.

The Tigers (46-51) extended their winning streak to six games, all since the All-Star break. They are 37-27 since May 8.
