After a solid performance against the Cubs last Friday following being designated for assignment and a lengthy minor league stint, Cahill exited the game after four innings, trailing 7-0.
The Tigers would go on to win the rubber game of the three-game set 11-5.
Here’s a look at the festivities, by the numbers.
