Walkoff Wraps

Scherzer Pitches Tigers to First Win Over Angels Since Time Immemorial

The headline is a slight exaggeration. The last time the Tigers beat the Angels before today was August 26, 2012. Ervin Santana was the Angel starter that day. Prince Fielder and Delmon Young both homered off him, Quintin Berry and Andy Dirks drove in runs, and Jeff Baker was Detroit’s starting third baseman that day. […]

No Smiles as Tigers Fall to Angels, 11-6

Drew Smyly struggled mightily with his command and Jered Weaver was Jered Weaver for most of the game, as the Tigers dropped a disappointingly messy 11-6 affair to the Angels. The Tigers, who were down 11-1 at one point, made it mildly interesting in the seventh inning, after Mike Scioscia pulled his starters from the […]

Tigers Sloppy, But Good Enough In Win Over Cleveland

It was far from a textbook example of quality baseball, but not every win is going to be pretty. The Tigers were happy to take a split in the rain-shortened two game set against Cleveland at Comerica Park. Ian Kinsler was the catalyst, driving in four runs. His three-run homer in the fifth was the […]

Quiet Bats Send Tigers To First Defeat

It had to come sometime. The Tigers dropped their first contest of the season to Baltimore 3-1 as Chris Tillman pitched into the ninth, allowing just five hits. Justin Verlander pitched well, putting efficiency over strikeouts and pitching eight strong innings. He fanned just three but his lower pitch count enabled him to pitch through […]

Despite Their Bullpen, Tigers Remain Unbeaten

The final score of this game was 7-6 Tigers. It looks close, and at the end it was close, though it had no business being close. While we should be discussing Torii Hunter’s huge day at the plate and a strong outing from Rick Porcello, we get to address the bullpen again! Well, let’s start […]

Tigers Break Out The Bats, Thrash Orioles

The back-to-back season opening walkoffs were fun, but the Detroit Tigers decided that they’d had enough of tight games and put up seventeen hits on the Baltimore Orioles for a 10-4 victory on a rainy day in Detroit. A trio of homers were key, but the last of them will probably prove most memorable, as […]

Fister was strong.

Leyland Shuffles the Lineup, Tigers Win 7-3, These Things May or May Not Be Related

The Tigers’ revamped lineup jumped on Jake Peavy and the Red Sox for five second inning runs and never really looked back, as the team ended up rolling 7-3, and tied the ALCS 2 games apiece. Doug Fister went 6, allowing 1 run on 8 hits and 1 walk, while striking out 7. Four relievers […]

I am in despair!

Tigers Threaten But Do Not Score; Red Sox Grab 2-1 Series Lead

The Tigers once again wasted Justin Verlander brilliance as the bats failed to make a dent against Boston’s John Lackey. Lackey was good, but the Tigers had their chances against him and Boston’s relievers and couldn’t push any runs across the plate. Verlander was once again terrific, but for one mistake to Mike Napoli. He […]
