HOUSTON (AP) — Rookie Casey Mize tossed seven scoreless innings for his first career win and fellow rookie Akil Baddoo homered again as the Detroit Tigers got a 6-2 win over the Houston Astros on Monday night.
It was manager A.J. Hinch’s first trip to Houston since he was fired for the team’s sign-stealing scheme.
Renato Núñez and Grayson Greiner also homered as the Tigers jumped on Zack Greinke (1-1) for six runs to snap a four-game skid.
Hinch received a standing ovation when he was introduced before the game and the team played a tribute video to him on the big screen.
