Anibal Sanchez was not sharp over 6.1 innings as he gave up five runs on 11 hits with four strikeouts and one walk in the win over the Diamondbacks Wednesday afternoon.
This marks the second poor start in a row by Sanchez, as he gave up four runs over six innings last time out. The Tigers' starter has been hitting a rough patch in the season lately, as he has a 5.79 ERA in his last four starts. On the bright side he only walked one man in the start, though a two-run home run by Did Gregorious spoiled the outing. ANALYST: Ben Diamond
