Analysis: He was 2-0 and had gone 13 straight scoreless innings before Tuesday. ''It was location,'' Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said of Farmer. ''The balls that were hit out were in the middle of the plate. He wasn't going to go through the entire season without giving up a run. It was bound to happen.''

Farmer struck out five, ending the game with a 0.00 ERA and 0.69 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Farmer was recalled from Triple-A Toledo prior to the game to replace the struggling Matt Boyd in the Tigers' rotation, and he'll surely get at least one more turn after Wednesday's impressive effort. The right-hander also pitched great in his only other major league start this year, holding the White Sox scoreless on three hits and striking out 11 over 6 1/3 innings on May 27.

Analysis: Farmer struck out a career high en route to his first major league win. He made his major league debut in 2014 and was 0-6 with a 6.84 ERA in 32 games before breaking through against Chicago. He eclipsed Justin Verlander for Detroit's season-high game for strikeouts, but was sent back to Triple-A Toledo after the start.
