Riley Greene reaches base four times in debut, Tigers’ offense breaks out

Detroit — You can call it the Riley Greene effect if you want, the Tigers don’t really care. This was just long overdue.

After a long string of zeros, the Tigers finally put some crooked numbers on the scoreboard, a lot of them. They scored a season-high 14 runs and ended a six-game losing streak, beating the Texas Rangers, 14-7, on Saturday before an announced crowd of 28,179 at Comerica Park.

“We needed that,” Spencer Torkelson said. “It’s definitely something to build off of. We’ve been grinding and we’ve kind of gone through it a little bit. It was nice to see hits fall and runs on the board. But this is only the beginning. We’re not satisfied with just the one win.
