Einstein Baseball

You've got free time. I've got free time. In my free time I've adapted something attributed to Einstein into a brain teaser that could consume several minutes (or hours) of your free time. You're welcome.

Five houses painted five different colors stand in a row. One player lives in each house. The five players all drink some type of beverage, drive a certain type of car, and have a certain pet. None of the players drink the same beverage, drive the same type of car, or have the same pet.

And here are the clues:

1. Goldschmidt lives in the red house. 2. Wong keeps cubs as pets. 3. Molina drinks Cosmopolitans. 4. The green house is on the immediate left of the white house. 5. The green house's owner drinks Ensure. 6. The player who drives the Miata rears sloths. 7. The player who owns the yellow house drives a Model X. 8. The owner living in the center house drinks White Claw. 9. DeJong lives in the first house. 10. The player who drives a tank lives next to the one who keeps pet rocks. 11. The player who keeps goats lives next to the one who drives the Model X. 12. The player who drives the F250 drinks Stag. 13. Wainwright drives a Pacifica. 14. DeJong lives next to the blue house. 15. The player who drives a tank lives next to the one who drinks Perrier.

The question is: Who owns the tigers?

Solve the riddle, show your work, and tag me in a tweet with both, and you could win something like a tshirt from the BotB team store (if that's still a thing).
