The Tigers' eight game winning streak came to a halt as they lost to the Houston Astros 6-2 yesterday at Comerica Park. Drew Smyly was tagged with the loss, giving up three runs on five hits while striking out two and walking three in five and one third innings. Victor Martinez hit a solo home run in the fourth inning and Nick Castellanos had an RBI double. Detroit begins a three game weekend series with Minnesota tonight. Justin Verlander gets the nod for the Tigers, while the Twins counter with Phil Hughes.
