Tigers, Pirates ready for rematch after slugfest

The Detroit Tigers had an unexpected layoff, and it seemed to energize their offense.

Detroit pulled out a wild 17-13 win over the host Pittsburgh Pirates on Friday in the first game of a weekend series. The Tigers will look to keep their offense firing in the middle game of the three-game series on Saturday.

A handful of their players had multi-hit games and five of them also knocked in multiple runs, paced by leadoff hitter Niko Goodrum, who finished with five RBIs.
