The Tigers scratched with a run in the fourth inning and tied the score in the seventh inning on Jay Baum’s RBI groundout. Steven Duggar led off the 11th with a single, stole second, and scored on Kennedy’s two-out double to right-center on an 0-2 pitch.
Tiger reliever Drew Moyer (3-0) earned the win for the Tigers, while Pittsburgh reliever Hobie Harris (3-5) suffered the loss. The series continues Saturday at 3 p.m. on ESPN3.
