Detroit Tigers have 4 errors in 4-1 loss to Toronto Blue Jays

TORONTO — Detroit Tigers shortstop Javier Baez put his hands near his head, signaling his frustration, in the fifth inning. An errant pickoff throw, ruled an error, put a runner in scoring position, leading to Vladimir Guerrero Jr.’s RBI double and Báez’s visible irritation.

The Tigers entered Sunday with 12 unearned runs over their past five games, and in Sunday’s series finale — a 4-1 loss to the Toronto Blue Jays at Rogers Center — the defense committed four errors but all four runs were earned. The offense posted three hits and one walk.

“It was shitty,” manager AJ Hinch said of the defense. “That’s my thoughts. It was inexcusable. Those are sloppy plays that need to be made.”
