Tigers Stun Athletics In 9th, Make Balfour Rage

For eight innings on Thursday afternoon, the fourth and final game of the Detroit Tigers/Oakland Athletics series looked like a bad bit of deja vu. Oakland had jumped on Max Scherzer early as the AL Cy Young candidate joined the list of Tigers starters unable to slow down a suddenly unstoppable Oakland offense. The Tigers […]

Tigers Still Can’t Pitch As Oakland Bombs Them Again

For a third consecutive night, the Tigers’ starting pitching put them in a hole early and did not stop the bleeding as Oakland hammered the Tigers 14-4 to clinch an outright series victory and set themselves up for a chance at a sweep tomorrow afternoon. Doug Fister actually managed to keep the Athletics off the […]

Yes, Miley. That inning certainly did grind the gears.

Stupor Soaker: Rain & JV Leave Fans Shaking Heads, A’s Win 6-3.

The first inning of this game lasted longer than the innocence of Miley Cyrus. There were 5 runs scored over a total of 45 minutes. And Justin Verlander, who I just said is totally fine in the preview, needed 44 pitches to get through it. JV bounced back strongly with an 8 pitch vintage second […]

You. You're better than a lot of people think, you.

Game 132: Tigers (77-54) vs. Athletics (73-57), 7:08 ET

It’s must over-analyze JV tonight in Detroit! (“must see” flows much better, eh?) Cliff Lee, Johan Santana, CC Sabathia, Tim Lincecum, Zack Greinke, Matt Cain, Felix Hernandez, Cole Hamels. All of those pitchers are making more money than Justin Verlander this year. Roy Halladay & Barry Zito are a mere $100K short of Verlander’s 2013 […]

Is there such a thing as too many singles, brother?

Motown Mixer: Tigers Sent Home Alone on Singles Night in The D, Losing 8-6

Unscientific data shows that men with facial hair (Roxbury regulars aside) are more often single than not. Oakland sports one of the higher beard-to-batter ratios in the league. The A’s generated more singles in this game than a Mila Kunis appearance on amateur night.  (That joke does double duty if you think about it. And […]

Game 131: Tigers (77-53) vs. Athletics (72-57)

Growing up, the Oakland A’s were my second favorite team. I still hold a small, nostalgic place in my heart for The Bash Brothers, Walt Weiss and Dennis Eckersley. Keep in mind, I was nine years old and had no idea Jose Canseco would turn out to be such an enormous turd burglar. I mimicked […]

You can only hope to contain him.

Tigers Sweep Away Mets Thanks (Mostly) to Strong Porcello Outing and Cabrera Blast

Rick Porcello pitched a strong ballgame, going seven and allowing only three runs, and the Tigers offense exploded in the late innings to cap off a three-game sweep of the New York Mets. Miguel Cabrera got things started in the first inning with a mammoth two-run homer, and the Tigers held a 2-1 lead until […]

Game 130: Tigers (76-53) @ Mets (58-69)

Cabrera just did what he does best—two run shot to give the Tigers a 2-0 lead. Homer #42 for Miggy! Tigers (R. Porcello — R) 1. Austin Jackson (R) CF 2. Torii Hunter (R) RF 3. Miguel Cabrera (R) 3B 4. Prince Fielder (L) 1B 5. Victor Martinez (S) C 6. Andy Dirks (L) LF […]

Max Scherzer was the offensive star of the game--wait, what?

Scherzer Helps His Own Cause, Picks Up 19th Win

Max Scherzer joined rarified air Saturday afternoon as he racked up his 19th win on the season, becoming only the third pitcher to win 19 of his first 20 decisions. Scherzer joined Roger Clemens (2001) and Rube Marquard (1912) as the only other pitchers to have accomplished the feat. Scherzer went six shutout innings, allowing […]
