Detroit Tigers Stink It Up, ALDS Deciding Game 5 Thursday In NY
The Tiger bats took the night off. Two of the balls that they hit hard were both caught by former Tiger centerfielder Curtis Granderson and both kept the Tigers from enjoying a big inning. Rick Porcello wasn't great, but kept his team in the game. In the 8th inning, the Yankee bats got it going a…
Detroit Tigers Beat Yankees To Lead ALDS 2-1

Max Scherzer gave the Tigers the pitching lift that they needed on the front end of today's American Leauge Divisional Series game with the Yankees in New York. Scherzer was a little wild, but held the Bronx Bombers hitless through the first 5 innings. Miguel Cabrera reached out and poked an outsi…
Detroit Tigers Lose Big In ALDS Game 1
I really hate the rule that says that playoff games must be finished once they start. The Tigers could have used two more at-bats to potentially get back into tonight's game at Yankee Stadium. Instead, this game began in the bottom of the 2nd inning after last night's game was rained out. Doug Fi…

Detroit Tigers Beat Cleveland Like A Drum
Doug Fister is now 11-13 for the season. That doesn't sound all that impressive unless you consider that he was 3-12 with Seattle before being traded to the Tigers. Fister got no help offensively when he pitched for the Mariners. That wasn't a problem tonight. While Fister was putting up zeros, …

Detroit Tigers Beat Baltimore 4-3 In 11 Innings
When Miguel Cabrera blasted a long two-run homer in the first inning, it looked like it was going to be a good night for the Tigers. As it turned out, it was. It just took a bit longer than usual for the Tigers to get win #91 and keep pace with the Texas Rangers for a chance at home field advantag…
Detroit Tigers Overcome 5-0 Deficit, But Lose 6-5
The Tigers top pitching prospect, Jacob Turner still has much to learn about pitching in the big leagues. Turner made his 3rd M.L. start tonight and was hit hard and often. He left the game with no outs in the 4th and the Tigers trailing 5-0. He would not get saddled with the loss despite the roc…
