Welcome to Lobsteinfest: Rookie Holds Yankees, Avila Walks Them Off

Kyle Lobstein really wouldn’t be in this headline but I needed to use that phrase. The Tigers won the series from the Yankees today with a 3-2 victory – their ninth win in fifteen games, believe it or not – behind six solid innings from Kyle Lobstein, more solid pitching from the bullpen, and a […]

20-20-3 = 2.5

20-20-3 = 2.5

The Tigers allowed 20 runs on 20 hits to the Minnesota Twins, en route to a 20-6 Twins blowout. What this all means is the Tigers find themselves 2.5 games out of first in the AL Central, as Kansas City won tonight. The Good • Blaine Hardy and Phil Coke. Both relievers settled things down […]

Game 126: Tigers (68-57) @ Twins (56-70)

The Tigers hope to score enough runs off the Twins’ Tommy Milone that they win tonight. Since scoring no runs didn’t really help them that much against Alex Cobb and the Rays the other day. Tigers Robbie Ray (L) 1. Ian Kinsler (R) 2B 2. Torii Hunter (R) RF 3. Miguel Cabrera (R) 1B 4. […]

Offense Wastes Price’s Brilliance As Tigers Lose Finale

The Tigers, feeling the need to add another piece to the pile of evidence that pitcher win-loss record is the most irrelevant stat there could possibly be, fell 1-0 to the Rays on Thursday afternoon despite David Price giving up one hit over eight innings and retiring the last 23 batters he faced. Price was […]

Tigers Lose, Everything Sucks

Here’s the short version of the Tigers’ 8-1 loss to Seattle, consigning them to yet another series defeat and knocking them back out of a playoff spot for the time being: Didn’t hit. Chris Young has flummoxed a number of teams with his mid-80s fastball, and the Tigers were no different. The at bats were […]

Farmer solid in debut, Tigers’ bats come alive in victory

Well, that wasn’t so bad, was it? Oh, you were holding your breath the entire top of the ninth too? Nevermind then. Starting pitcher Buck Farmer was solid in MLB debut, going 5 innings while allowing 4 runs. Yeah, his ERA sits at 7.20 right now, but the defense – not Farmer – should be […]

Game 118: Pittsburgh (64-55) @ Detroit (63-infinity)

Well, the Tigers pitched well (save for a couple of games) on the road trip but the offense decided to not participate in the games for some reason. I am guessing they just didn’t want Joe Nathan to blow another save…so they would do him a favor and never give him the opportunity. Kind and […]

Toothless Tigers Tamed Again By Pirates

The Tigers scored six runs yesterday. They could’ve used them today as the bats once again went quiet in a 4-2 loss to Pittsburgh, capping off a 2-7 road trip that somehow felt much, much worse. Detroit was largely kept quiet by Edinson Volquez. They scored three batters in against him, and could have had […]
