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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Tigers Waste Nearly Seven Hours Of Everyone’s Life, Lose In 19

The Tigers lost 6-5 in 19 innings, having held a 5-0 lead as late as the sixth inning. We’re going to break this down a bit, because much like Saturday, this game was a microcosm of everything that the Tigers do poorly far too frequently, and nearly everyone was culpable in this series of events. […]

Price Excites, Tigers Rally To Topple Yankees

David Price was the story, but the Tigers’ resilience should not be overlooked as they won a 12 inning marathon over the Yankees, 4-3. Price was everything the Tigers could’ve asked. He gave them 8 2/3 innings, allowing three runs – two on solo homers, which has really been his only problem this season – […]

Tigers Offense (Finally) Erupts In Thrashing Of Rockies

The Tigers are near the top of most offensive categories in the league, but they haven’t really shown it since the All Star break – until tonight, anyway, when the Tigers scored in every single inning in an 11-5 rout of Colorado. While only the 4th and 5th innings saw the team score more than […]
