Tigers Stink Again, Lose First Place To Royals

After two and a half months atop the AL Central, the Detroit Tigers have been knocked from their perch rather convincingly by a red-hot Kansas City Royals ballclub. Max Scherzer couldn’t stop the KC onslaught in an 11-4 victory. THE GOOD Well, they got ten hits. Plenty of baserunners. That wasn’t the problem. Blaine Hardy […]

Game 67: Royals (37-32) at Tigers (36-30)

The Tigers have ended every day of the regular season to date with at least a share of first place in the AL Central. That will change tonight if they fall to the streaking Kansas City Royals.

The Only Thing That Matters is JD Martinez Hit a Grand Slam Tonight

The Only Thing That Matters is JD Martinez Hit a Grand Slam Tonight

This is it. This is your recap. This is the only thing that happened tonight that did not make me want to kick puppies, so this is the only thing that is going into the recap. Max Scherzer (8-2, 3.05 ERA) goes tomorrow for the Tigers, while the Royals counter with rookie phenom Yordano Ventura […]

Verlander will try to tame the red-hot Royals.

Game 66: Royals (36-32) @ Tigers (36-29)

With the walkoff win over the Twins on Sunday afternoon, the Tigers claimed the series two games to one and took just their second series since the May 16-19 series in Boston (the Tigers have gone 2-6-1 in the nine series since Boston).

Tigers Score Runs, Tigers Bullpen Allows Slightly Fewer Runs

What should’ve been a comfortable victory ended up not so comfortable, but the Tigers did win 12-9 over the Twins on a wild Saturday at Comerica Park. THE GOOD Lots, actually, mostly on the offensive side. Let’s start with Eugenio Suarez, who was a single shy of the cycle (he had the chance, but grounded […]

Game 64: Twins (32-33) at Tigers (34-29), 4 PM, FS1

National game today. Check your local listings for Fox Sports 1. The Tigers will try to avoid going below .500 at home – where they’ve pretty consistently won 50 games a year since 2009 – against the Twins today. The pitching matchup is certainly in Detroit’s favor, but can the bats get going? TWINS SP: Samuel […]

Rotten Twinkies.

Gibson Handcuffs Offense, Tigers Fall 2-0 to Twins

There’s really not much to say about this one. The Twins’ Kyle Gibson was just about untouchable, and when the Tigers did threaten, they were unable to get the key hit to tie the game or take the lead. Miguel Cabrera, the best in the Majors with runners in scoring position, stranded five men on […]

Scherzer Outpitches Sale As Tigers End Losing Streak

With Chris Sale looming, the Tigers needed a huge start from Max Scherzer Thursday night if they wanted to avoid another extended losing streak. Scherzer delivered and then some, pitching his first career complete game – a three-hit shutout – as Detroit closed out their trip to Chicago with a 4-0 win. THE GOOD How […]

Victor Martinez (1B) 5. Torii Hunter (RF) 6. Austin Jackson (CF) 7. Nick Castellanos (3B) 8. Alex Avila (C) 9. Eugenio Suarez […]

Tigers Can’t Overcome Sloppy Play In Loss To White Sox

The Tigers rallied back several times but in the end were unable to overcome their own mistakes in a 6-5 loss to the Chicago White Sox. THE GOOD Eugenio Suarez homered again! He joins an elite group of Tigers who hit two homers in their first four Major League games. And by elite, I mean […]
