Recap: Detroit vs. LA Angels

Detroit, MI (SportsNetwork.com) - Nick Castellanos' go-ahead RBI single in the bottom of the sixth inning lifted the Detroit Tigers to a 2-1 win over the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim Sunday in the finale of a three-game set.

Austin Jackson worked a two-out walk in the sixth to chase starter Hector Santiago from the game. With Kevin Jepsen now on the mound, Jackson advanced to second on Hank Conger's pickoff attempt error. Castellanos then lined a single through the middle to plate Jackson for a 2-1 margin.

Ian Krol and Al Alburquerque worked the eighth, while Joe Nathan fired a scoreless ninth to notch his third save of the season.

Torii Hunter and Austin Romine were the only other Tigers with hits. They tallied a pair apiece for Detroit, which won despite going just 1-for-11 with runners in scoring position.

Rick Porcello (2-1) allowed a run on five hits and a walk over seven innings to earn the victory.

Santiago (0-3) fanned seven and surrendered two runs -- none earned -- on two hits and five walks over 5 2/3 frames for the Angels, who have dropped four of their last six games.

The only other runs of the game came in the first inning.

Howie Kendrick's two-out RBI single got the Halos on the board, and Detroit tied it in the home half by using three Angels errors on one play.

"It was an unusual play, I've never seen it before," Kinsler said.

Ian Kinsler worked a one-out walk and began to dart for second on a ball four to Miguel Cabrera. Conger threw to second anyway and it sailed into center field. Kinsler moved to third and went home when Mike Trout's toss back into the infield missed the cutoff man. Santiago picked up the loose ball near the mound, but was unable to nab Kinsler in time.

"We thought we had Cabrera struck out, and all of a sudden they had a run in and a runner on second base," Angels manager Mike Scioscia said.

Game Notes

The Angels tallied four errors in all ... LA was 1-for-5 with runners in scoring position and left five men on base.
