Tigers lose 104th game, move closer to first overall pick

DETROIT (AP) Edwin Jackson allowed five runs in five innings, and the Detroit Tigers took control of the race for the top pick in next June's amateur draft with an 8-2 loss to the Baltimore Orioles on Sunday.

Detroit (44-104) has lost two of the first three games of the four-game series against the Orioles (49-100), opening a 4 1/2-game advantage for the worst record in the major leagues. Any combination of 10 Tigers losses and Orioles wins would clinch the top pick for Detroit in a draft highlighted by Arizona State first baseman Spencer Torkelson and Georgia pitcher Emerson Hancock.

Baltimore took Oregon State catcher Adley Rutschman with the top pick this year after finishing 47-115 last season. Detroit selected Auburn pitcher Casey Mize with the No. 1 selection in 2018, a year after going 64-98.
