The countdown

Stuck in an 11-game losing
streak Evan Engram
, the Detroit Tigers cleared the air with a pregame meeting. Then
Nick Castellanos went out and cleared the bases with an important home run that
helped stop Detroit’s slide.

Castellanos hit his fourth career grand slam, Jordan Zimmermann pitched seven
strong innings and the Tigers beat the Toronto Blue Jays 9-1 on Sunday.

Manager Ron Gardenhire scheduled the pregame meeting, a relaxed session in
which players were invited to say whatever was on their mind. Castellanos called
it an opportunity to ”just kind of address the elephant in the room.”

”It gave anybody a chance that wanted to speak up to speak up,” said
Castellanos, adding that Victor Martinez, James McCann and Gardenhire were among
those who talked.

JaCoby Jones hit a two-run homer as the Tigers won for the first time since
June 17, when they completed a three-game road sweep of the Chicago White

Castellanos nearly hit another home run in the ninth but Blue Jays outfielder
Kevin Pillar made a leaping catch at the wall.

”I felt like I was going to have a chance to make a play,” Pillar said. ”A
ball like that hit as high as it is it allows me time to kind of track the ball
and track the fence and go up to try to make a play. ”

Castellanos stopped on the basepaths to applaud Pillar’s catch before turning
and heading back to the dugout.

”What else can you say the end of the day besides `What a
play Marshon
Lattimore Jersey
,”’ Castellanos said. ”It sucks it had to happen to me
but plays like that have to happen to somebody.”

Niko Goodrum had a career-high four hits and Jose Iglesias had two hits and
two RBIs for Detroit, which had lost 12 of 14 at Rogers Centre.

”That was a fun win, a really fun with with a lot of great swings,” Gardenire

Zimmermann (3-0) allowed one run and five hits in his third start since
returning from a shoulder injury that caused him to miss more than a month.

”He had a great curveball today,” Gardenhire said. ”That’s probably the best
curveball I’ve seen all year out of him.”

Wearing red jerseys and caps for Canada Day, the Blue Jays couldn’t deliver a
win for the holiday crowd of 37,445.

Tigers outfielder Leonys Martin left with a sore left hamstring after his
bases-loaded bunt single in the fifth brought home Detroit’s first run. Martin
was replaced by Victor Reyes.

Following the game, Gardenhire said Martin would be placed on the 10-day
disabled list. A corresponding roster move will be made before Monday
afternoon’s series finale.

Castellanos followed with his 13th home
run Doug
Baldwin Jersey
, a shot that bounced off the top of the wall in right. It
was his first grand slam since Sept. 8, 2017, also against Toronto.

Castellanos also made a fine catch in right, reaching back to grab Russell
Martin’s line drive for the final out of the fourth.

Iglesias chased Blue Jays left-hander J.A. Happ (10-4) with a two-out,
two-run single in the sixth.

Happ matched season-worsts by allowing seven runs and 10 hits in 5 2-3

”It’s not a pretty outing and I own that,” Happ said.

Happ had won six consecutive decisions since his previous defeat, May 10
against Seattle.

Teoscar Hernandez tripled in the first and scored on a two-out double by
Justin Smoak, but Zimmermann recovered to retire the next nine Blue Jays

Tigers: RHP Alex Wilson, who left in the eighth inning Saturday because of a
sore left calf, was not available. … RHP Drew VerHagen (nasal fracture) pitched
one scoreless inning for Triple-A Toledo Saturday night, his first rehab
appearance. VerHagen has been out since June 20.

Blue Jays: Toronto optioned utilityman Darnell Sweeney to Triple-A Buffalo
after the game and will make a corresponding roster move Monday.


Tigers RHP Mike Fiers (5-4, 4.04) faces Blue Jays LHP Ryan Borucki (0-1,
3.00) in Monday afternoon’s series finale. Fiers is 0-2 with a 5.91 ERA in two
career starts at Rogers Centre. Borucki made his major league debut at Houston
last Tuesday, allowing two runs in six innings.

Bucks forward Thon Maker broke out in their Basketball World Cup qualifying game

The fight spilled into the area behind the baseline and video showed a chair
being thrown at the back of an Australia player either by a fan or member of the
Philippines team staff. Former NBA player Andray
Blatche Kalen
Ballage Jersey
, now playing for the Philippines, appeared to throw
multiple punches, while Maker came at a Philippines player with legs flying high
as it continued.

A total of 13 players were ejected after the melee that began in the third
quarter of Australia’s 89-53 victory following a collision in the lane. The game
continued with just three players from the Philippines.

Anthony Moore, chief executive of Australian basketball, apologized to fans
in a statement, adding that ”this is not the spirit in which sport should be
played and certainly not in the spirit in which we aim to play basketball.”

The Australians later tweeted that everyone on their team was safe and well .
The Bucks said they would have no comment about Maker.
