Detroit Tigers Hammered By Halos
This game was ugly on way too many levels for the Tigers.  Detroit has several players in the top ten in batting average, runs batted in, pitching wins.  We sent 5 to the All-Star Game, and statistically, could have sent a couple more.  The Tigers have a lot of good players.  Yet…

Detroit Tigers Win 3rd Straight, Beat Royals 6-4

Detroit Tigers Hang On To Beat Royals 3-1
Ryan Raburn closed his eyes and swung the bat as hard as he could.  The Kansas City pitcher hit his bat in the sweet spot and Raburn was rewarded with a two-run homer in the second inning.  That turned out to be all the offense Max Scherzer and the Tigers would need to get their second win…
Detroit Tigers Lose Again
Justin Verlander only gave up one run last night.  That's usually good enough to win.  The Angels' Dan Haren didn't give up any as the Tigers could only manage two measley hits.  Angels 1, Tigers 0.
