The Nationals tied the game in the eighth inning due to two Tigers errors, with Lane Thomas advancing to second on a fielding error and then scoring on Ildemaro Vargas's sacrifice fly.

Joey Gallo left the game in the seventh inning after grabbing the back of his left leg, indicating a potential injury.
