ST. LOUIS– Jack Flaherty’s third outing on the mound since returning from the injured list was an abbreviated one.

Flaherty left the game in the top of the third inning Tuesday night against the Detroit Tigers after Robbie Grossman and Miguel Cabrera hit back to back home runs to give Detroit a 4-0 lead.

The team announced that Flaherty left with right shoulder tightness.

Daniel Ponce de Leon came in for relief.

Flaherty is 9-1 on the season.
