Defense, Bullpen Flounder As Tigers Pounded By White Sox

It was another game to forget at Comerica Park as the Tigers lost to the White Sox 11-4. Through six innings, this one was quite close – tied, in fact, at 2-2, with a hit-and-miss White Sox bullpen due to take over and Anibal Sanchez pitching well. In the seventh, however, everything came apart for […]

Scherzer, Tigers Rally Past Angels

This wasn’t quite the pitchers duel we anticipated, but Max Scherzer lived up to his billing as the Tigers came from behind to beat the Angels 6-4. Scherzer stumbled in the fifth, giving up three runs, including a two run single by Kole Calhoun. With the Tigers up against Garrett Richards and an improved Angels […]

Bullpen Falters Again As Tigers Cough One Up In Arizona

This one certainly won’t go down well with the viewing public, and it’ll probably give Dave Dombrowski a headache. With Joba Chamberlain and Joe Nathan unavailable, Phil Coke, Al Alburquerque, and Ian Krol combined to cough up an 8th inning lead as the Diamondbacks won 5-4 to even up the series. Everything looked okay in […]

Doubleheader Sweep Further Exposes Dombrowski’s Bullpen Shortcomings

This won’t quite be the same sort of recap. More an editorial recap, really. The Tigers lost game one this afternoon 6-2 and game two 5-2. Drew VerHagen was decent in the first game, and Max Scherzer struggled through six innings in the second, but both gave the team a chance to win. The offense […]

Porcello Back On Track As Tigers Continue Dismantling Royals

It seems like a very long time ago that the Royals came into Detroit and took first place away from the Tigers. KC’s victory on June 18 put them 1.5 up – since then, the Tigers are 17-5, the Royals 8-14, and Detroit has turned a 1.5 game deficit into a 7.5 game lead. With […]

Game 90: Tigers (52-37) at Royals (47-45), 7:10 PM ET

The Tigers are back at 15 games above .500, tying a season high, and they can clinch a series win tonight against the Kansas City Royals. TIGERS SP: Rick Porcello 1. Austin Jackson (CF) 2. Ian Kinsler (2B) 3. Miguel Cabrera (1B) 4. J.D. Martinez (DH) 5. Torii Hunter (RF) 6. Nick Castellanos (3B) 7. Alex Avila (C) 8. Andrew Romine (SS) 9. Rajai Davis (LF) ROYALS SP: James Shields 1. Norichika Aoki (LF) 2. Lorenzo Cain (RF) 3. Eric […]

Game 89: Tigers (51-37) at Royals (47-44), 8:10 PM ET

Game two of the series tonight. No Victor Martinez again – he’s just pulled out of the All Star Game, replaced by Ian Kinsler – and it seems unlikely we’ll see Victor again before the break. TIGERS SP: Anibal Sanchez 1. Austin Jackson (CF) 2. Ian Kinsler (2B) 3. Miguel Cabrera (1B) 4. J.D. Martinez (RF) 5. Torii Hunter (DH) 6. Nick Castellanos (3B) 7. Eugenio Suarez (SS) 8. Bryan Holaday (C) […]

Royals Overwhelmed as Tigers Offense Erupts (Again)

The Tigers are getting used to this whole double digit run thing. For the second game in three, the Tigers put up crooked numbers against their opponent, coming up with 19 hits in a 16-4 win over the second place Kansas City Royals. Plenty of good here, so… THE GOOD Half of Detroit’s runs came […]

Game 88: Tigers (50-37) at Royals (47-43), 8:10 PM ET

It’s the Battle for the AL Central! At least, the Battle for the AL Central at the All Star Break. On a serious note, the Tigers could be anywhere from 0.5 up to 8.5 up (on KC, at least) at this time on Sunday. Big series. Should be fun. Here are your lineups. Spoiler alert: […]
