The Detroit Tigers denied a report that claimed the club filed a complaint early Wednesday with the commissioner’s office in response to Tuesday’s rain-shortened loss. The report cited a club official, who said the Tigers appealed crew chief Jerry Layne’s decision to halt the game in the sixth inning. The complaint also protested whether the […]
Detroit Tigers manager Jim Leyland took the high road after a 4-1 loss to the Red Sox that was called because of rain with the Tigers having the bases loaded with two outs in the sixth. “You can’t do anything about it,’’ Leyland said. “The weather didn’t cooperate very good all night, but that’s the […]
