Backed by a two-run first inning, Jordan Zimmermann shook off his career struggles against the Cubs with five strikeouts over six innings of one-run ball, and Shane Greene won a 10-pitch battle by striking out Jason Heyward with the tying run aboard to earn his 27th save as the Tigers won the opener of a two-game set. On a day the Cubs acquired Daniel Murphy, Anthony Rizzo’s home run from his knees marked their fifth straight game in which the offense mustered only a solo shot.
