Detroit Tigers find some power in 3-0 win over Baltimore Orioles

Detroit Tigers catcher Eric Haase jogged around the bases in the fifth inning. He pointed to the sky before touching second base, and, on his way to third base, he finally got to use the bow-and-arrow celebration.

It had been a long time.

Haase hadn’t homered since Opening Day.

His second home run of the season helped the Tigers to a 3-0 victory Saturday in the second of three games against the Baltimore Orioles at Comerica Park, though the bullpen shined brightest after starting pitcher Michael Pineda exited in the second inning.

Detroit improved to 11-23 with consecutive wins.

In the second inning, Willi Castro scored Jonathan Schoop with a sacrifice fly to put the Tigers ahead 1-0. Schoop led off with a double, then advanced to third on a fielding error by Orioles left fielder Ryan McKenna.
