CINCINNATI (AP) — Five Detroit pitchers teamed up to allow Cincinnati just one run, Jeimer Candelerio delivered a two-run triple and the Tigers took the rubber match of the three-game series 4-1.

The loss dropped Cincinnati percentage points behind San Diego for the National League’s second wild card. The Padres host the Astros on Sunday.

All-Star closer Gregory Soto threw a wild pitch in the eighth inning that scored Cincinnati’s only run, but he finished the game for his 18th save.
