Schoop, Haase carry Tigers with 2 HRs each

Detroit Tigers

The Tigers and Brewers found themselves in a slugfest on Tuesday night at American Family Field. When it was over, Detroit came out on top, 10-7, thanks to two-homer games by Eric Haase and Jonathan Schoop.

At first, it looked like the game was going to be a laugher, after the Tigers scored six runs in the second inning off Brewers left-hander Eric Lauer. Haase tied the score at 1 with a homer to begin the frame.

Five batters later, the Tigers had the bases loaded and Miguel Cabrera doubled in three runs to make it a 4-1 game. It was Cabrera’s 400th double as a member of the Tigers and the 583rd double of his career, tying him with Robin Yount for 21st place on the all-time MLB leaderboard.

Cabrera later scored on a two-run homer by Schoop, the second baseman’s sixth of the season.

In the next inning, Haase increased Detroit’s lead by hitting his second home run of the game, a solo shot over the center-field fence.
