Defense, Bullpen Flounder As Tigers Pounded By White Sox

It was another game to forget at Comerica Park as the Tigers lost to the White Sox 11-4. Through six innings, this one was quite close – tied, in fact, at 2-2, with a hit-and-miss White Sox bullpen due to take over and Anibal Sanchez pitching well. In the seventh, however, everything came apart for […]

ICYMI: Tigers Squander A Bit of Smyly Brilliance To Angels, Lose 2-1

Smyly was dominant. He was so dominant that he had a negative FIP for the game. He racked up 11 strikeouts in 5.2 IP, and allowed 2 runs on 4 hits and 1 walk. He certainly deserved a better fate than his teammates’ lackluster performance against Tyler Skaggs. He certainly deserved better than a loss. […]

Scherzer, Tigers Rally Past Angels

This wasn’t quite the pitchers duel we anticipated, but Max Scherzer lived up to his billing as the Tigers came from behind to beat the Angels 6-4. Scherzer stumbled in the fifth, giving up three runs, including a two run single by Kole Calhoun. With the Tigers up against Garrett Richards and an improved Angels […]

Bullpen Falters Again As Tigers Cough One Up In Arizona

This one certainly won’t go down well with the viewing public, and it’ll probably give Dave Dombrowski a headache. With Joba Chamberlain and Joe Nathan unavailable, Phil Coke, Al Alburquerque, and Ian Krol combined to cough up an 8th inning lead as the Diamondbacks won 5-4 to even up the series. Everything looked okay in […]

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 […]

Doubleheader Sweep Further Exposes Dombrowski’s Bullpen Shortcomings

This won’t quite be the same sort of recap. More an editorial recap, really. The Tigers lost game one this afternoon 6-2 and game two 5-2. Drew VerHagen was decent in the first game, and Max Scherzer struggled through six innings in the second, but both gave the team a chance to win. The offense […]
