The Pirates fell behind the Tigers 2-0 after the first inning on Sunday, this since defeating Detroit in the previous two games of this interleague series. Quintin Berry's two-run homer in the first inning that gave the Tigers their advantage, and the Bucs have not since threatened.
Pittsburgh does have a pair of hits on the game, facing Tigers' ace Justin Verlander, who has a pair of strikeouts on the day. Alex Presley and Michael McKenry have the Pirates's two hits.
Even with a loss, Pittsburgh still will have won this series after having defeated the Detroit on Friday and Saturday, but the sweep is still within reach if the Pirates' bats are able to touch Verlander.
