High voltage is the production of races for the Tigres on Friday night and in it, the Venezuelan wood is registered in the bats of Miguel Cabrera, Harold Castro and Víctor Reyes. Between the three they drove in 4 of the 15 lines scored by Detroit.

In the second section Castro was in charge of opening the score with a double booster of 2; in the third Jonathan Schoop hit a solo homer; for the fourth Jeimer Candelario applies the same medicine and in the sixth, Víctor Reyes sounded single that he drove in 2 more.

But the damage in that inning was even greater and four more runs would be missing that came after a homer with one on the edge of Dustin Garneau, a hit by Tigre Mayor that adds one and biangular by Candelario that gummed up Schoop.

The blackboard already indicated 10×4 in favor of the Bengalis who were able to continue gutting the Reds; Garneau again went to the fairway (solo) and Robbie Grossman homered with two on bases.

In the eighth Nico Goodrum put the icing on the cake with a single that drove in Candelario to establish the final 15×5.

This extraordinary production all benefits reliever Derek Holland who in 2 stretches of work (the final chapters) gives 2 walks and equal number of strikeouts. The victory is credited and he is 3-2 with a 6.28 ERA.

Cincinnati starter Vladimir Gutiérrez loses after receiving 4 touchdowns, 3 earned, for 3.1 innings of 1 walk and 1 fan. His record is now 9-6 and 4.17 ERA.

For Detroit Miguel Cabrera finished 4-1, 1 scored, RBI and walked (.250); Harold Castro goes 4-2, pair of trailers, 1 touchdown and strikeout (.285); Victor Reyes was 2-for-5 while hitting the plate on one occasion, also dropping one.

For the scarlets, Eugenio Suárez thundered his 25th home run of the year, a break with no one on the pads. He finished 2-1, RBI, scored, walked and struck out (.175).
