It was Smyly's first outing of more than three innings after beginning the season in the bullpen. He owns a 3.60 ERA and 15:4 K:BB ratio in 15 innings. Smyly is set to face the White Sox again Tuesday, this time in Chicago.

He gave up two runs on seven hits with one walk and 10 strikeouts. He has just seven walks and 34 strikeouts in 27 innings this season.

A 6.23 earned run average indicates that it hasn't been easy for new Tigers closer Joe Nathan this season, but he is nailing down saves.

Nathan notched his fourth Thursday against Chicago, though he did have the comfort of a three-run lead. He walked Marcus Semien with one out, but fanned Jose Abreu. The game ended strangely on batter's interference.

The veteran closer has allowed at least one batter to reach base in seven of his eight appearances this season and has surrendered one run or more in four of them.
