The Tigers dropped tonight’s game against the Kansas City Royals tonight from Kauffman Stadium by a 3-2 final score. And in doing so, they matched a losing statistic they’d not seen since the 1996 season.

Detroit has now lost four consecutive one-run games for the first time since they did so in April of 1996, according to Elias Sports.

For reference, the number 1 song in the country in April of 1996 was Céline Dion’s “Because You Love Me”, the average price for a gallon of gas was $1.17, and the Detroit Red Wings were closing in on the NHL’s all-time regular season win record with 62.
