Home MICHIGAN Tigers' nine-game win streak against O's ends abruptly

Tigers’ nine-game win streak against O’s ends abruptly


Baltimore, Md. − Under different circumstances, maybe manager AJ Hinch would have pulled starting pitcher Matt Manning after five laborious innings Wednesday night.

But one of the chores left for the Tigers this month is to squeeze as many healthy innings as they could out of the second-year right-hander who missed more than three months with shoulder inflammation. This was his 12th start and he’d thrown just 57.1 innings.

The more innings he can log before the end of the year the fewer the restrictions going into 2023. At least that was the prevailing theory. But there was more at play here.

Baltimore Orioles' Jordan Lyles is doused by teammates after the Orioles defeated the Detroit Tigers 8-1.

“Going into the off day I wanted to give the bullpen some rest, too,” Hinch said. “I wanted Matt to get as many outs as he could.”

There were consequences for that pursuit, though, as the Orioles were able to salvage the finale and end a nine-game losing streak to the Tigers with an 8-1 win.  

Manning was grinding from the start. Going into the sixth inning, he’d got into six three-ball counts, walked three and had already thrown 83 pitches.

Box score:Orioles 8, Tigers 1

But there was no handshake after five.

“He’s an effective pitcher,” Hinch said. “I’m not going to rescue him every time.”
