Skubal goes 7, Schoop brings in 2 runs in Tigers’ 5-0 win

Jonathan Schoop drove in two of Detroit’s runs and his is hitting .438 with a home run and six RBIs in the five-game series against his former team.

Skubal walked one and struck out six to improve to 3-0 with a 1.22 ERA in his last six starts.  Minnesota skipper Rocco Baldelli says Skubal is one of the best young pitchers in the league:

The Twins haven’t scored in 20 innings.

The Tigers have won three of four in the series that concludes Thursday at 12:10 p.m. on 950 KWAT.
