Tigers slip by sloppy Pirates 5-4, snap 4-game losing streak

PITTSBURGH (AP) Christin Stewart's sped his thinking up and slowed down his feet, helping the Detroit Tigers end a four-game losing streak in the process.

Stewart was on first with the bases loaded and one out in the eighth inning of a tie game on Tuesday night when Brandon Dixon hit a sharp grounder to Pittsburgh second baseman Adam Frazier. Rather than keep on sprinting to second, Stewart hesitated as he neared Frazier. Frazier tried futilely to tag Stewart before throwing to first. Nicholas Castellanos scored from third on the play to give Detroit a 5-4 lead it would hold on to - barely - to win for just fourth time this month.

"Frazier, I tried to pull him toward first base, and when he didn't turn around and throw to second, I was like, `All right, you're gonna have to tag me,'" Stewart said. "I just broke down so that he wouldn't tag me. He was running toward me, so I knew that is what he wanted to do."
