Castellanos' 3-run triple lifts Tigers over Brewers 5-2

Posted:

DETROIT (AP) -- Nick Castellanos hit a bases-loaded triple with two out in the eighth inning to lift the Detroit Tigers to a 5-2 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers on Wednesday night.

The Tigers avoided a sweep in the three-game series thanks to a rally in their final at-bat. With two out, nobody on and the score tied at 2, Jonathan Broxton (1-1) allowed consecutive singles by J.D. Martinez and Yoenis Cespedes and a walk to Tyler Collins.

Castellanos' line drive down the line dropped in, then skipped past right fielder Gerardo Parra to clear the bases.

Blaine Hardy (2-0) struck out the only batter he faced for the win, and Joakim Soria pitched the ninth for his 13th save in 13 chances.

Ryan Braun homered for the Brewers.
