OAKLAND, Calif. -- Nick Castellanos homered and Cameron Maybin doubled in a run, giving rookie Michael Fulmer more than enough support in the Detroit Tigers' 4-1 victory over the Oakland Athletics on Friday night.
Fulmer (4-1) retired 14 of the first 15 batters he faced, with Khris Davis' single with two outs in the second inning the only smudge of an otherwise dominating performance.
He gave up three hits over 7 2/3 innings, walking one and striking out three. Fulmer retired 14 hitters on groundballs and five on flyballs.
A's starter Sean Manaea (1-3) gave up three runs on nine hits in six-plus innings. He walked two and struck out four.
