Game notes: The Tigers were shut out for the second straight game by the A's, 7-0, on Saturday, and now face the disheartening prospect of a four-game sweep if they lose Sunday. It was a tough afternoon for Casey Mize, though he showed gumption by rebounding from early home runs. Now, the hopes ride on Matthew Boyd's left shoulder, and he has been very good in three starts so far.

TIGERS STOCK: Casey Mize starting to meet expectations as former No. 1 pick

HOT START: How Akil Baddoo's first 10 games track with some modern greats

SICK BAY: Nomar Mazara out 'at least a couple weeks'; Miguel Cabrera a week away?
