Game notes: The Tigers will try to avoid the sweep Sunday. Three straight 3-2 losses means Detroit has lost five of its past six and 11 of 13. Eleven runs over the past five games is a big factor in the struggles. Sunday might be a good one for Jonathan Schoop, who's batting .133 in 90 at-bats this season but is hitting .342 in 38 career at-bats vs. Odorizzi with a home run. Miguel Cabrera and Akil Baddoo have taken Odorizzi deep as well.

Next up for the Tigers: Five games in four days at home vs. the Oakland A's (including a straight doubleheader Tuesday in which the A's are the home team for Game 1, but not Game 2). The Astros get Monday off before three games vs. the Minnesota Twins.
