DETROIT TIGERS BASEBALL

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 […]

Game 13: Angels (7-8) @ Tigers (7-5)

The Tigers look to build on their winning ways, as they send Drew Smyly to the mound in his first start of the season. Smyly will be on a pitch count tonight, so the Tigers sent Tyler Collins to Toledo and brought up reliever Justin Miller for bullpen insurance. The Angels will be countering with […]

Homesick: Tigers Lose 3 of 5 in Cali + San Diego Rubber Match, 5-1

I think everyone is ready for a nice, long home stand. With 10 straight games in Comerica on the docket, hopefully the weather in the D will improve and make us quickly forget about this often frustrating California road trip, where the bullpen faltered a few times and the bats went flat more often than […]

Game 10: Tigers (6-3) @ Padres (4-7), 4:10 PM ET

Bleary eyed Detroit fans are looking forward to a west coast game that should end well before the witching hour, as Max Scherzer and his 1.20 ERA look to deliver a series win over the Padres, with the Tigers offense hopefully treating the 2013 AL Cy Young kinder than it has thus far. The bats […]

Game 8: Tigers (5-2) @ Padres (3-6)

After a day off following the Tigers’ dramatic 7-6 extra innings victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers, the Tigers roll into town to take on former teammate Joaquín Benoit and the San Diego Padres. The Padres have struggled early on, winning only three of their first nine games, while the Tigers are enjoying first place […]

Five Overly Rushed Conclusions From the Tigers’ First Week

The Tigers have played a week’s worth of games now, so we’ll use this small sample size to draw a bunch of overarching conclusions about the state of the ballclub, because that’s what sports punditry entails. So here are some slapdash thoughts based on seven games of baseball…. 1. Andrew Romine should be getting a […]

Dodgers Find Tigers Soft Spots, Win 3-2 in 10

The good news is it’s only the 9th of April. You can still procrastinate on your tax returns for a few more days and Brad Ausmus is an intelligent human who, despite the fact that he’d probably still look handsome cloaked in failure, will not likely allow Phil Coke to drape him in late inning […]

Game 6: Tigers (4-1) @ Dodgers (5-3), 10:10 PM, ET

Mahatma Gandhi said, “I would heartily welcome the union of East and West provided it is not based on brute force.” Right about now, most of you are wondering if you clicked the wrong link or if I’ve been partaking in some of the more liberal uses of free time out here in Santa Monica, where […]

Game 5: Tigers vs. Orioles

Apologies for the quick & late lineups – wheels up in, well, way too soon. We’ve got a few wrinkles today including Romine starting at SS again and Tyler Collins getting the nod in left against RHP Chris Tillman. Enjoy the game, folks! Orioles Chris Tillman (R) 1. David Lough (L) LF 2. Nick Markakis […]

Game 2: Kansas City Royals (0-1) @ Detroit Tigers (1-0)

After an exciting ride on Opening Day, the absence of Tigers baseball on Tuesday was like hopping off the Blue Streak at Cedar Point to find that your only other option is the Teacups. At least the Yankees cup was chipped? The Tigers will take the field again today. All is right with the world. […]
