BOUNCE BACK: Why Jonathan Schoop believes 'it's my time to shine' after Detroit Tigers benched him

HOME IS WHERE THE HINCH IS: Detroit Tigers manager A.J. Hinch 'super happy' to be in Houston: 'I call this home'

Game notes: Another Tigers outing, another Detroit starter looking for his first victory of the season. This time, it's Eduardo Rodriguez taking the bump for Detroit. To show just how different this season has been from last for Rodriguez: On May 7, 2021, he had just picked up his fifth win in six starts. In five starts this season, Rodriguez has shown flashes of his 2021 form, but he's still searching for that first win of the season.
