When a team loses five out of six games in a week, there generally aren’t many highlights to speak of. That’s pretty much the case for the Detroit Tigers this week. The week started with a visit from the Houston Astros, in which Detroit kindly gave Houston three wins. After an off day on Thursday, they hosted the Chicago White Sox for a weekend series. Detroit took the series opener on Thursday but proceeded to drop the remaining two. The win came at the hands of a Victor Reyes walk-off sacrifice fly in the 10th inning.

As far as individual stats go, a lot of players had rough weeks. Take your pick for who had the worst week. Riley Greene went 4-22, striking out nine times. Harold Castro rocked an 0-14 this week. Ryan Kreidler has found himself in an 0-15 slump. Spencer Torkelson went 2-19 this week. The list goes on, and on.

The two overall positives that immediately come to mind for the week are Javier Baez and Matt Manning. Baez had himself quite a week at the dish, collecting exactly 10 hits in the six games played. Most notable were the triple and two home runs he hit. He was without a doubt the offensive player of the week for Detroit. His struggles in the field have continued, however. He collected three more errors this week, taking his already league-leading total to 26. The next closest individual is 18. Yikes.

On the pitching side of it, Manning had the best individual performance this week. He went seven scoreless innings on Friday against the White Sox. He was given a no-decision after Joe Jimenez blew the lead, but the team pulled out the victory in the end.

That’s it for the weekly recap, here is what the week looked like in numbers.

Total runs scored: 15

Total runs allowed: 32

Team batting average: .171

Team on-base percentage: .264
