Sanchez, Reanimated Nathan Help Tigers Salvage Series Finale

Kansas City’s ten game winning streak came to an end on Thursday as the Tigers won the makeup game to cap off a four game set against the Royals 2-1. THE GOOD Under normal circumstances, in a 2-1 game that had a solid starting pitching performance, I wouldn’t start with the closer. But I’ve done […]

Our Long National Nightmare Is Over: Tigers DFA Evan Reed

The Tigers called up Toledo right hander Chad Smith late last night to bolster a struggling bullpen. To make room for Smith on the 40-man roster, the Tigers designated Evan Reed for assignment early this morning. The team now has ten days to trade or release him. After that, Reed can accept an assignment to […]

Tigers’ Struggles – And Successes – Boil Down To Their Starting Rotation

When you’re 9-19 in your last 28 games and you lost a seven game division lead in the process, people are going to point fingers at pretty much everyone. The manager isn’t doing a good job. The bullpen is hacking up leads left and right. The starters are putting the team in the hole early. […]

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. No pressure. Your lineups… ROYALS SP: Yordano Ventura 1. Norichika Aoki (RF) 2. Omar Infante (2B) 3. Eric Hosmer (1B) 4. Billy Butler (DH) 5. Alex Gordon (LF) 6. Salvador […]

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). The team kicks off an important four-game series tonight against the Kansas […]

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 […]
