Three former pitchers for the Erie SeaWolves preserved Wednesday’s 1-0 victory by the Detroit Tigers over Kansas City Royals.

Drew Smyly, Luis Marte and Luke Putkonen combined with starter Max Scherzer for a six-hit shutout on a night that saw Detroit third baseman Miguel Cabrera become Major League Baseball’s first Triple Crown winner since 1967.

The Tigers, the American League Central Division champions, will take on the Oakland Athletics, the Western Division winners, in a best-of-five divisional round series that starts Saturday.
