Pirates Vs. Tigers Final Score: Bucs Lose 3-2 Against Detroit

The Pirates weren't able to sweep the Detroit Tigers at home this weekend, as the Bucs fell 3-2 in Sunday's series finale. Pittsburgh fell behind early, but made a decent rally behind Garrett Jones' two-run homer in the seventh inning.

Delmon Young scored Quintin Berry, who put the Tigers up in the first inning with two-run blast, for the game-winning run. Jason Verlander was marvelous for the Tigers, going the distance having given up five hits, two earned runs with seven strikeouts to add to his cred.

Kevin Correia pitched through six innings before Chris Resop and Juan Cruz pitched in relief. Resop gave up the game-winning run, so he was charged with the loss.
