Alfredo Simon (4-2) took the hard-luck loss after yielding both runs on seven hits over six innings. Miguel Cabrera, who has four home runs and nine RBI in his last four games, continued to swing a hot stick with an RBI single to produce Detroit’s lone run.

Getting the call for the Tigers on Monday will be lefty Kyle Lobstein, who has alternated wins and losses in his six starts this season, but is coming off his worst showing of the season.
Lobstein absorbed the loss on Wednesday against Minnesota, which ripped him for six runs and seven hits in 2 1/3 innings. The setback dropped him to 3-3 on the year to go along with a 4.33 ERA.
He had entered the game with the most innings (33) of any Major League starter without a home run allowed before serving one up to Torii Hunter.
Heading to the hill for Milwaukee will be righty Mike Fiers, who is 1-4 with a 5.00 ERA. Fiers did not get a decision on Tuesday against Chicago, but pitched well enough to get the win, as he allowed just two runs, five hits and struck out seven in 6 1/3 innings.
He has 49 strikeouts in only 36 innings this season.
Milwaukee, meanwhile, pulls up the rear in its division and dropped two of three to the New York Mets over the weekend, including a 5-1 setback on Sunday.
Wily Peralta (1-5) last just five-plus innings and was touched for five runs on nine hits in Milwaukee’s fourth loss in five games. The Brewers were outscored 19-2 in losing the final two games of the series.
This is the first series between these teams since the Tigers swept a three- game set back in 2009.
