      Tigers rally past Pirates 8-4

      Nick Castellanos homered and tripled, and the Detroit Tigers rallied for an 8-4 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates on Wednesday night, snapping a four-game losing streak.

      The Tigers, who are suddenly facing adversity amid mounting injuries, rallied from a 4-1 deficit on a night when they had to send Buck Farmer to the mound to make his major league debut.

      Farmer allowed four runs in five innings, and Blaine Hardy followed with two scoreless innings of relief.

      Castellanos put Detroit ahead 5-4 with a solo homer off Vance Worley in the sixth. Victor Martinez added a two-run single in the seventh.

      The Tigers returned home after going 2-7 on a road trip against the New York Yankees, Toronto and Pittsburgh. A 19-inning loss to the Blue Jays stretched the pitching staff thin, and Anibal Sanchez and Justin Verlander are nursing injuries.
