Detroit Tigers Come From Behind In 8th, Beat K.C.
Rick Porcello put two pitches in the wheelhouse of Kansas City rookie first baseman Eric Hosmer, and Hosmer put both of them deep into the right field seats. Note to Porcello: Don't pitch to that guy anymore. Porcello was hit hard by many of the other Royals hitters today, but left the game …
Detroit Tigers Win On Santiago’s Walk-Off Homer In 10th
Ramon Santiago wasn't supposed to be the hero of tonight's game. Tiger starting pitcher Doug Fister mowed down the first 18 Kansas City hitters without anybody reaching base. Fister would get into some trouble in the 7th, but the Royals would only score one run. Unfortunately, the Tigers were sti…
Detroit Tigers Roughed Up By Royals
This one started out badly for Tiger pitcher Max Scherzer and then went downhill. Alex Gordon of the Royals led off the game with a homer and Kansas City would put runs on the board in 5 of the first 6 innings. Scherzer didn't make it out of the 4th inning and had already given up 7 runs to t…

After winning the first two games of their 3-game series with the Cleveland Indians, the Tigers might have thought this was going to be easy.

Verlander Wins #18, Detroit Tigers Trounce Twins
The Minnesota Twins put some runners on base in the early innings, but failed to score against Detroit's Justin Verlander. By the time the Twinkies got on the scoreboard in the 8th inning, the Tigers had already crossed home plate 7 times. That was more than enough for Verlander to get win nu…

Detroit Tigers Lose To Orioles 8-5
The Tigers have a scheduled day off on Thursday. For the first 8 innings today, it looked like they were taking today's game off. They couldn't hit when it counted, couldn't play defense (Raburn should donate his glove to someone who might learn how to use it), and didn't pitch very well. The Ori…
Detroit Tigers Win 3rd Straight, Beat Orioles 6-5
The last 8 wins for the Tigers have been of the 1-run variety. This one didn't start out very well for Max Scherzer and his Detroit teammates. Baltimore scored 5 runs in the second inning on a pair of home runs. Scherzer settled down after that and dominated the Orioles, racking up 10 strikeouts …
