Offense Can’t Back Porcello in 3-1 Loss

Offense Can’t Back Porcello in 3-1 Loss

The Tigers continue to have issues with their offense vanishing on the road and late in games, and today was no exception. Rick Porcello was actually pretty decent. The only major issue that I could see is that the Rays’ left-handed hitters kept trying to hit the ball the other way against him, and the […]

Game 80: Tigers (43-36) @ Rays (42-39)

Well, after yesterday’s Cabrera-Rodney incident, today’s game may be a soap opera of sorts. Then again, it may not. But I’m sure someone somewhere will post a picture from the time Rick Porcello plunked Kevin Youkilis. Speaking of Porcello, he’s coming off two starts in a row in which one bad inning did him in. […]

Verlander delivers.

Tigers Fall In Extra Innings Yet Again

The Tigers got eight rugged (as Lynn Henning would say) innings out of Justin Verlander, but a victory wasn’t in the cards as the offense yet again sputtered in the late innings and Tampa Bay pulled out the walkoff victory in extra innings. Verlander, who went eight for the first time this season, gave up […]

Verlander hopes he's found some answers.

Game 79: Tigers (43-35) @ Rays (41-39)

A day after Max Scherzer padded his record to 12-0, ace Justin Verlander looks to halt a three-start winless stretch (Verlander’s 0-1 and has struggled in two of those three starts). According to Dave Hogg here, Verlander and Jeff Jones have worked on lowering Verlander’s release point. Verlander’s made twelve starts against Tampa Bay and […]

Tigers Inexplicably Get Swept By Angels

The good news that comes out of today is that the Tigers won’t have to play the Angels again this regular season. It’s a very small silver lining after the fourth-place Halos came into Detroit and swept the Tigers, this time in ten innings, 3-1. The story for much of this one was the pitching. […]

Game 77: Angels (35-43) @ Tigers (42-34)

The Tigers hope to salvage at least one game of this three-game series against the Angels today. Angels (J. Weaver – R) 1. J.B. Shuck (L) LF 2. Mike Trout (R) CF 3. Albert Pujols (R) DH 4. Howie Kendrick (R) 2B 5. Josh Hamilton (L) RF 6. Alberto Callaspo (S) 3B 7. Brad Hawpe […]

Angels Continue Inexplicable Dominance Over Tigers, Take Series

Things looked in place for the Detroit Tigers to end their winless run against the Angels on Wednesday night. Angels starter Tommy Hanson was a late scratch due to forearm tightness, forcing the Angels to throw 85 mph throwing org guy Billy Buckner, who pitched last night. If it was close late, the Tigers had […]

Game 76: Angels (34-43) at Tigers (42-33), 7:08 PM

The Tigers will look to even up the series tonight against the Angels behind Jose Alvarez. Lineups as follows… Angels (T. Hanson – R) 1. J.B. Shuck (L) LF 2. Mike Trout (R) CF 3. Albert Pujols (R) DH 4. Mark Trumbo (R) 1B 5. Josh Hamilton (L) RF 6. Alberto Callaspo (S) 3B 7. Chris Iannetta (R) C 8. Erick Aybar (S) SS […]

WOOF! That’s all. And 14 of 22 runs go to the Angels…

WOOF! That’s all. And 14 of 22 runs go to the Angels…

(… for those who favored picture books over elementary school math, that means the Tigers lost.) Here’s how it all went down: If the Angels and the Tigers played more often and in more high-pressure situations, I could see Mike Trout becoming the next Claude Lemieux or, for the youngsters (a word that officially puts […]

The sky above the stadium during Porcello's last 1st inning vs. the Halos.

Game 75: Angels (33-43) @ Tigers (42-32), 7:08 ET

The last time Rick Porcello faced the Los Angeles Angels, Mike Trout made WAR-Monger Jayson Stark blush with a Cabrera-like move in the first inning – contributing his first career grand slam to a 9-run assault that knocked Ricky out of the game with only 2 outs to his credit. The Angels danced in the […]

Verlander labored through five innings.

Tigers Overcome Verlander Struggles to Take 3 of 4 From First Place Sox

Justin Verlander labored today, as he gave up four runs on seven hits, walked three, and struck out four in five inefficient innings. Verlander’s command was all but non-existent, as he struggled to put away Red Sox hitters. Verlander’s performance wasn’t even the story of a bizarre getaway day, though, as the Tigers saw a […]
