Villarreal Gets No-Pitch Outing Vs. Rangers

Brayan Villarreal pitched a third of an inning -- without actually throwing a pitch.

Villarreal came on in the top of the seventh for Detroit with a man on first and two out Tuesday. Before making a single delivery to the plate, he picked off Texas' Julio Borbon at first to end the threat with the Tigers still leading 4-3.

That was it for Villarreal, who was replaced by Joaquin Benoit to start the eighth.
