Game notes: The Tigers got wins in all three of their rookie starters’ (Casey Mize, Tarik Skubal and Matt Manning) starts against the Rangers this week, outscoring the Rangers 22-3. Now it’s Tyler Alexander’s turn; the lefty from TCU is in his third season, with 13 starts in 54 appearances for the Tigers. He’ll have a much easier time if the Tigers give him the runs they’ve given the rest of the rotation; they’ve scored at least one run in the first three innings in all three defeats of Txas.
