Tigers edge sloppy Angels

DETROIT – Rick Porcello pitched seven sharp innings, and the Detroit Tigers took advantage of four Los Angeles errors in a 2-1 victory over the Angels on Sunday.

Three of those errors came on one play in the first inning, allowing Detroit’s Ian Kinsler to score from first on a walk. Then in the sixth, Angels catcher Hank Conger threw wildly to first trying to pick off Austin Jackson. It was his second error of the game, and Jackson went to second.

Nick Castellanos followed with an RBI single to put Detroit ahead 2-1.

Porcello (2-1) gave up a run and five hits, striking out four and walking one. Three relievers finished, with Joe Nathan pitching the ninth for his third save in five chances.

Hector Santiago (0-3) allowed two unearned runs and two hits in 5 2/3 innings. He walked five and struck out seven.
