Sanchez gave up just one run through seven innings but watched the first two batters of the eighth reach on an error and a run-scoring double before being removed. The other runner would also score later in the inning, but the Tigers would win the game in the ninth. Sanchez owns a 2.63 ERA, 0.98 WHIP and 66:21 K:BB ratio in 82 innings.

He got through the next two frames without issue but gave up a solo home run in the sixth to end his bid for a seventh straight quality start.

Anibal Sanchez picks up win without recording a strikeout


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Sanchez (4-2) got off to bit of a rocky start. He allowed a leadoff double to Norichika Aoki to start the game. Aoki would score three batters later on Billy Butler's RBI double.

But Sanchez would then find his groove. He would retire the next 11 batters before Mike Moustakas had a one-out single in the fifth inning.

Anibal Sanchez falls short in complete-game bid


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5/29/2014) Tigers starting pitcher Anibal Sanchez put together one of the best starts of his season Wednesday, but ran into trouble late in a 3-1 loss to the Athletics.

Sanchez pitched into the ninth inning for the first time, but fell short in his bid for a complete game. He recorded the first out of the ninth before allowing a one-out double, upon which he was pulled. Closer Joe Nathan came into the game to try and save it, but allowed a three-run home run for the loss.

Sanchez ultimately allowed one earned run in 8 1/3 innings of work, on just three hits. He also walked only one batter, while striking out nine on 111 pitches in the no-decision.

"We have to watch his pitch count, for sure," manager Brad Ausmus told The Detroit News Saturday. "We have to watch it and make sure it doesn’t get over a certain amount."
