Six games into the Cal Ripken season, the Rockies are still looking for Win No 1.

The Tigers moved into a tie for second place after knocking off the Rockies 12-0 in three innings.

Alex Carrasco took the mound for the Rockies in the loss, but it wasn’t a host of walks that hurt the Rockies but their play in the field.

Errors provided the Tigers extra outs, and the Tigers took advantage, pushing five runs across the plate in the first and seven more in the third.

But the Rockies also struggled at the plate and could not get runners on base very often.

The Tigers completed the shutout by retiring the Rockies in order in the bottom of the third for the run-rule victory.

The Tigers will face the White Sox Saturday morning at 11 a.m. at Rosel Field while the Rockies will take on the Royals at 3 p.m. Saturday.
