Detroit Tigers left-hander Tyler Alexander allowed one run over 2 2/3 innings in an 8-3 win over Seattle on Thursday. Alexander struck out two and walked one in the start.
Alexander got the start on a bullpen day for the Tigers. He made some traditional starts for Detroit over the past two years but his arm isn't stretched out enough for him to go deep into games these days. He has a 4.44 ERA, 1.37 WHIP, and 26 strikeouts in 26 1/3 innings of work.
