Walkoff Wraps

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 […]

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. […]

Tigers Offense Wakes Up In the Nick of Time

It really wasn’t looking very good for the Tigers. Anibal Sánchez had to leave the game in the fifth inning with an injury—more on that later!—and the Tigers’ offense had been held down for most of the roadtrip, outside of their one win in New York (in which they scored a whopping two runs). Coming […]

Verlander Strong In Loss. Bats? Not So Much.

Justin Verlander went 7, allowing 2 runs on 5 hits with 5 strikeouts and 1 walk, but it wasn’t enough as the offense came up flat against Chris Capuano and could muster only one run. Blaine Hardy went 0.2 IP and imploded spectacularly, allowing three runs. Phil Coke came in to finish off the mess […]

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 […]

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 […]

ICYMI: Tigers Squander A Bit of Smyly Brilliance To Angels, Lose 2-1

Smyly was dominant. He was so dominant that he had a negative FIP for the game. He racked up 11 strikeouts in 5.2 IP, and allowed 2 runs on 4 hits and 1 walk. He certainly deserved a better fate than his teammates’ lackluster performance against Tyler Skaggs. He certainly deserved better than a loss. […]

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 […]
