DETROIT MANAGER BRAD AUSMUS:
On tonight’s game overall: Similar to yesterday, couldn’t come up with big hits, and they hit home runs.
On Detroit’s performance against Sam Gaviglio’s: It was mainly the movement on the two-seam fastball, a little bit tough on right-handed hitters moving in and down on them. The one opportunity was with the bases loaded and no outs, able to get a run out of it, but like I said we couldn’t get that big hit.
On Anibal Sanchez’s start: He threw pretty well really. I thought he did a good job locating his fastball, changeup was good, mixing in the breaking balls. He did a nice job.
