Shane Greene shines as Tigers beat Orioles 2-1
SARASOTA, Fla. (AP) Shane Greene pitched into the sixth inning without allowing a run and the Detroit Tigers beat the Baltimore Orioles 2-1 on Wednesday night.
Greene gave up three hits and struck out nine after solidifying a place in Detroit's rotation this week. He had two solid starts to conclude the spring. In his last 10 2/3 innings, Greene gave up just one run on six hits.
Matt Wieters bunted twice for singles against Greene, while Chris Davis had the other base hit.
James McCann hit a home run in the second inning off Baltimore starter Chris Tillman, who pitched four innings. The Tigers' second run came on a throwing error by Manny Machado.
Machado was Greene's ninth and final strikeout. When he was called out by minor league umpire Joey Amaral in the sixth inning, he was ejected for arguing.
