10 wins and 30 losses just looks wrong. Anyway, Dallas Keuchel, a lefty, takes on Max Scherzer, a righty, in today’s matinée match. Avisail Garcia is starting his first game of the season, batting ninth, playing center field.
After a shaky first couple innings, command-wise, and an early deficit, Doug Fister settled down, kept the damage to a minimum, and waited for the Tigers’ offense to come to life. Fister threw seven innings of two run, five hit, seven strikeout ball and helped the Tigers to their second win in a row, while [...]
The Tigers take on an Altuve-less Houston Astros lineup—the Astros’ starting second baseman was placed on the bereavement list following the death of his grandmother—and starter Lucas Harrell tonight in Detroit. Meanwhile, the Tigers will send Doug Fister to the mound in search of his fifth win. Ramon Santiago will be stepping in at SS [...]
Ah, the Houston Astros. Baseball’s answer to the guy you know who never keeps a job but doesn’t get evicted, somehow. Somebody out there’s gotta be helping him get by, pay the bills, look like a real person. That person doesn’t exist for the venerable Astros, who are now 10-29 after a punchless performance in [...]
As you may already know, the Tigers placed Austin Jackson on the 15-day disabled list this morning with a hamstring injury. The injury had been hampering Jackson for a while, having been given days off in Houston and against Cleveland this past weekend. After starting off the season with respectable numbers, May has been less than kind to Jackson and one [...]
The perils of a poor weekend series behind them, the Tigers gladly welcome the Houston Astros farm team, the Houston Astros, onto the playing field for tonights contest.
Well, Jose Valverde was bound to blow a save at some point. I still haven’t decided what my opinion of the long-term effects of Valverde’s presence will be, but at this point, there isn’t much data to go on. We’ll have to see what happens next time. This time, however, Valverde’s command was just not [...]
The pink bats will be out for Mother’s Day as the Tigers and Indians face off in the rubber game of this series. Rick Porcello returns to the rotation after having his last start skipped (though he never did end up pitching out of the bullpen). He was decent against Houston, giving up three runs [...]
The Tigers will probably be very happy their stay in the nation’s capitol is a short one as they were again defeated by the Washington Nationals 5-4. The Tigers, unlike last night, found themselves in a very early hole, with old nemesis Denard Span starting the fire with a leadoff double and a series of [...]
