Tigers pitcher Kyle Ryan was the tough-luck loser Monday afternoon in a 2-0 loss to the White Sox. He went seven innings, allowing just six hits, one walk and two earned runs. He struck out two. Jeff Samardzija was sparkling Monday and held the Tigers to just one hit. It was really too bad, as Ryan put together what was arguably his best start with the team.
Tigers rookie Kyle Ryan recorded his first quality start of the season on June 5. Little could he have imagined his second would not come until three-and-a-half months later.

But he did yield only two runs on six hits in seven innings with one walk and two whiffs. The lone runs scored off Ryan were off an RBI single by Adam Eaton in the third and solo homer by Carlos Sanchez in the sixth. Ryan shrunk his ERA to 4.94, its lowest point since July 2.

He went 13 for 48 with a home run in 16 games with the Tigers earlier this season.
