Detroit Tigers Win 3rd Straight, Beat Royals 6-4
Just like last night, this one came down to the very last batter.  Magglio Ordonez continued his hot hitting since coming back from the DL by blasting a two-run homer in the first inning to put the Tigers in the  lead.  They would stay there despite closer Jose Valverde's be…
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.
Detroit Tigers Come From Behind, Beat Giants 6-3
The Tigers needed some of their role players to come up big for a change.   Today was the day.  Ryan Raburn has been getting booed at Comerica park lately, and deservedly so.  He strikes out a lot and has made some costly errors recently.  His batting average …
Detroit Tigers Lose Big Again
As I was listening to the game between the Tigers and Giants on the way home from a family get-together, I heard announcer Dan Dickerson describe the San Francisco team as "light-hitting".  Not that I am superstitious, but I knew we were doomed after he uttered those words ove…

Detroit Tigers Win, Verlander Silences Mets
Justin Verlander didn't even have his "A" game today.  But he is proving every time he takes the mound that he is one of the most formidable pitchers in the game.  He kept the Mets from putting slowpitch softball-like numbers on the scoreboard today and the Tigers wo…
Detroit Tigers Mashed By New York Mets Again
At least tonight they put up a fight.  But it wasn't enough and the New York Mets continued to pound Tiger pitching to the tune of a 16-9 win.  The Tigers hit 5 homers, two by Miguel Cabrera, but every time they got back in the game the Mets would score some more.  Phil Coke gave…
Detroit Tigers Mauled By Mets 14-3
Rick Porcello didn't have it tonight.  He gave up 7 runs to the New York Mets and didn't make it out of the 4th inning.  Daniel Schlereth relieved Porcello and appeared to throw gas on the fire.  By the time Schlereth hit the showers, the Tigers were down 13-0.
Detroit Tigers Score Late To Win 3rd Straight
Max Scherzer pitched well enough to earn his 10th win of the season.  He didn't get it, but the Tigers rallied for two runs in the bottom of the 8th to pull out a 4-2 win over the Toronto Blue Jays in a make-up game from a rainout from back in May.  Tiger Manager Jim Leyland had to wa…
