Tigers Offense Goes Pathetically Silent Again As Pirates Take Series

For the second time in three nights, the Tigers wasted an excellent outing by a starting pitcher due to their own inability to score before falling in eleven innings, 1-0, to the upstart Pittsburgh Pirates. This, however, was not quite the same story as Tuesday night. Where on Tuesday the Tigers had few real chances […]

Sanchez’s 7th Inning Implosion Costs Tigers Dearly

For six innings on Wednesday evening, it looked as if this would be Anibal Sanchez’s night. No, there was no no-hitter going, but Sanchez was yet again brilliant. He was striking out Pirates hitters left and right, he had allowed just two hits – both of them to newly-inducted Tiger killer Neil Walker. The Pirates […]

Game 51: Tigers (29-21) at Pirates (32-20), 7:05 PM

Yes, yes. That would have been worse.

Pitcher’s duel capped by Jason Grilli. Yes, that Jason Grilli. Tigs fall 1-0.

Thank you @ejzwart for so succinctly delivering the most positive thought a tired, frustrated Tigers fan like me can think of after a game like this. (“At least it wasn’t Inge”, in case the eyes are strugglin’) Poor, poor Ricky. Even with captain nice-guy starting in CF, the baseball gods were once more unkind to […]

Aw, fiddlesticks. Another rainy night? Guess I'll go help an elderly person cross Woodward.

Game 50: Pirates (31-20) @ Tigers (29-20), 7:08 ET

You will see a name at the end of Jimmy’s lineup card today that stokes fear in the hearts of those who love a die-hard Tigers fan, as they imagine the potential aneurysm it may cause. Start with a deep breath. Continue with a few more. Understand that life is, for the most part, out […]

Bats on bats on bats.

J-hon Fire: Peralta Stays Hot, Verlander Keeps His Cool and the Tigers Win.

We could go round and round and round in the debate about whether or not Jh. Peralta’s bat makes up for his fielding, but that topic is out of… range for this recap. One thing is undebatable. Jhonny came up big at the plate in today’s 6-5 win over the pesky Pirates. In a game […]

Scherzer was all schmiles.

Tigers Take Series From Twins Thanks to Another Strong Scherzer Start

Max Scherzer went six strong innings, allowing just three hits, one run, while striking out six, and pinch hitter Avisail Garcia came through with a big three-run triple in the sixth to give the Tigers breathing room. The Tigers, who’d been clinging to a 3-1 lead, blew the game open and didn’t look back, as […]

Doug Fister looks perplexed.

PJ Walters Remains Unstoppable Tiger-Killer, Tigers Fall to Twins 3-2

The Minnesota Twins scored all the runs they would need in the first inning, and the Tigers couldn’t quite get to PJ Walters or a succession of Twins relievers. The Twins never really looked back after that, though the Tigers mounted comeback attempts that fizzled out late in the game. Joe Mauer—BOO!! HISS!!—set the tone […]
