Tarik Skubal throws cup, nearly hits Tigers rookie Riley Greene [Video]

Detroit Tigers starting pitcher Tarik Skubal was not happy after an error caused his fourth inning to take longer than he hoped and he took out his frustrations in the dugout, nearly taking out Riley Greene in the process.

The error happened in the top of the fourth inning with one on and one out with San Diego Padres MVP candidate Manny Machado at the plate.

As you will see in the video below, Machado fouled off a pitch from Skubal that Tigers’ first baseman Harold Castro should have easily caught. Unfortunately, Castro made a Little League error to give Machado another chance.

Detroit Tigers adding Daniel Norris could hint at more moves

Fortunately, the Detroit Tigers were able to come back and win the game in walk-off fashion as Victor Reyes hit a double with two strikes and two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning.

Tarik Skubal ended up pitching 6 innings while giving up just three hits and walking three while striking out just two Padres hitters.

The Tigers are now 40-59 on the season.
