Game 118: Pittsburgh (64-55) @ Detroit (63-infinity)

Well, the Tigers pitched well (save for a couple of games) on the road trip but the offense decided to not participate in the games for some reason. I am guessing they just didn’t want Joe Nathan to blow another save…so they would do him a favor and never give him the opportunity. Kind and […]

Toothless Tigers Tamed Again By Pirates

The Tigers scored six runs yesterday. They could’ve used them today as the bats once again went quiet in a 4-2 loss to Pittsburgh, capping off a 2-7 road trip that somehow felt much, much worse. Detroit was largely kept quiet by Edinson Volquez. They scored three batters in against him, and could have had […]

Verlander Exits With Apparent Shoulder Injury, Tigers Fall To Second Place

Verlander Exits With Apparent Shoulder Injury, Tigers Fall To Second Place

Here’s your shortest ever Walkoff Woodward recap in honor of Justin Verlander’s shortest career start! I really don’t have much to say about this game. It isn’t worthy of it. It was clear from the start that Verlander had nothing, and then we later learned why. Verlander had to come out after one inning due […]

Tigers Waste Nearly Seven Hours Of Everyone’s Life, Lose In 19

The Tigers lost 6-5 in 19 innings, having held a 5-0 lead as late as the sixth inning. We’re going to break this down a bit, because much like Saturday, this game was a microcosm of everything that the Tigers do poorly far too frequently, and nearly everyone was culpable in this series of events. […]

Hey Joe, It’s Time to Look In the Mirror

Author’s Note: I wanted to wait until today’s game was over to post this, however this game almost six and a half hours long and no one wants to win. So why don’t you sit back and read this Joe Nathan rant while you suffer through this unbearable mess with the rest of us! It’s […]

Tigers Offense Wakes Up In the Nick of Time

It really wasn’t looking very good for the Tigers. Anibal Sánchez had to leave the game in the fifth inning with an injury—more on that later!—and the Tigers’ offense had been held down for most of the roadtrip, outside of their one win in New York (in which they scored a whopping two runs). Coming […]

Verlander Strong In Loss. Bats? Not So Much.

Justin Verlander went 7, allowing 2 runs on 5 hits with 5 strikeouts and 1 walk, but it wasn’t enough as the offense came up flat against Chris Capuano and could muster only one run. Blaine Hardy went 0.2 IP and imploded spectacularly, allowing three runs. Phil Coke came in to finish off the mess […]

Price Excites, Tigers Rally To Topple Yankees

David Price was the story, but the Tigers’ resilience should not be overlooked as they won a 12 inning marathon over the Yankees, 4-3. Price was everything the Tigers could’ve asked. He gave them 8 2/3 innings, allowing three runs – two on solo homers, which has really been his only problem this season – […]
