Verlander, Cabrera Tame Some Snakes As Tigers Top D’backs in the Desert

Justin Verlander, armed with a last minute pregame tweak—he apparently discovered a mechanical flaw while Google searching images of himself to see if his grip has changed shortly before the game—held the Diamondbacks to three runs over 6.2 IP, and Miguel Cabrera contributed with a tie-breaking RBI single to dead center, helping the Tigers top […]

Tigers Kick Off Unofficial Second Half With Massive #PriceIsRightLoserHorns

Well, that’s one way to kick off the “second half”. #PriceIsRightLoserHorns The Tigers jumped out to a 3-0 lead on the Indians’ Trevor Bauer, and Anibal Sánchez got off to a good start, throwing 6 innings of scoreless baseball before seemingly tiring in the seventh. Sánchez ended up allowing 4 runs on 6 hits in […]

Tigers Get Just Enough Offense, Pitching to Top Royals 2-1

Anibal Sánchez wasn’t his at his best, but he was still good enough as he helped the Tigers defeat the Royals, 2-1, on Friday night. Sánchez gave up at least one baserunner in every inning he pitched, and the Royals had at least one baserunner in every inning, but Sánchez and co. were able to […]

Seagulls were out and about tonight.

Tigers Drop Series Finale to Rays, Ace David Price

Rick Porcello struggled on the eve of All-Star roster announcements, as he surrendered seven runs on eleven hits in just 5.2 IP of work against a previously offensively-challenged Rays squad, while the Tigers’ offense couldn’t get the big hit against David Price. The Tigers had good swings all night, but their batted balls either went […]

Game 85: Rays (40-50) @ Tigers (48-36)

The Tigers send Rick Porcello (11-4, 3.12 ERA) to the mound in the hopes of rebounding from a disappointing 7-2 loss on Saturday. The Tigers, who were fortunate enough to miss Clayton Kerdshaw in the upcoming series against the Dodgers, will be tasked with beating the Rays’ ace, David Price (7-7, 3.50 ERA). Price is […]

Rajai Davis Delivers a Super Slam, Tigers Walk Off on A’s Again

Arguably the best closer currently in the game was coming in to lock down a 4-1 Oakland lead. The bottom of the Tigers’ order was due up. Sean Doolittle had allowed only one run in 27.1 IP since taking over the closer’s role for Oakland. He was boasting a stingy 2.08 ERA (to go along […]

SUPER MARTINEZ BROS!!! (manip by me)

Super Martinez Bros. Provide Big Bats, Help Tigers to 6-4 Win

Rick Porcello gave the Tigers six strong innings, Victor and JD provided enough offense, and Joe Nathan capped off a second straight successful ninth inning appearance as the Tigers took the series opener in Cleveland, 5-4. If you watched the game, you probably had a heart attack in the bottom of the eighth inning, but […]

Our Long National Nightmare Is Over: Tigers DFA Evan Reed

The Tigers called up Toledo right hander Chad Smith late last night to bolster a struggling bullpen. To make room for Smith on the 40-man roster, the Tigers designated Evan Reed for assignment early this morning. The team now has ten days to trade or release him. After that, Reed can accept an assignment to […]
