Detroit Tigers Sweep Indians, Verlander Wins #22

Justin Verlander only gave up three hits today in six innings of work. Two of them were two-run homers to Shelley Duncan, and Verlander finished the sixth trailing 4-2. You don't win 20+ games in the big leagues without a little help, and that help showed up in the top of the seventh in the form of a five run Tiger rally. Victor Martinez hit a grand slam on the first pitch he saw from reliever Tony Sipp to give the Tigers the lead for good.

Detroit Tigers Topple Tribe, Magic Number Is 14

Austin Jackson was named American League "Player of the Week" for his incredible offensive production last week where his batting average was well above .500. Tonight, he made two outs in the first inning. That's actually a good thing. The fact that Jackson had the opportunity to make two outs in the same inning meant that his teammates were doing some serious damage to the Cleveland pitching staff. After Jackson grounded out to start the game, Andy Dirks made the second out in the first. Delmon Young walked for the first time since becoming a Tiger (90+ at-bats). After that, the Tiger batters hit six straight singles and by the time Austin Jackson made the final out of the first inning, the Tigers had a 5-0 lead.

Detroit Tigers Crush White Sox 18-2

This was a day when everybody in the lineup padded their stats. Andy Dirks came in as a defensive replacement after the game was already out of hand and had 4 RBI on two hits. Everything the Tigers hit tonight was falling in. They hit balls hard, they hit bloopers and nubbers, everything fell in safely for hits. The Tigers had a season-high 24 hits. Miguel Cabrera hit another long homer tonight, this one a 430 foot blast into the bushes in center. He also knocked in 4 runs. Victor Martinez had 3 hits, Ordonez had 2 hits, Austin Jackson had two more hits, Jhonny Peralta had 2 hits and 3 RBI, Alex Avila had 4 hits and Brandon Inge chipped in with 3 hits.

Detroit Tigers Come Back From 7 Run Deficit, Win 9-8 On Cabrera Homer

Brad Penny has struggled this season as a Tiger pitcher. He didn't get much help from his defense today and that set the stage for a fun day for Chicago hitters. An error on what could have been an inning-ending doubleplay in the 4th led to 5 White Sox runs (4 unearned) and the Tigers were down 6-1. Penny didn't help himself much in the next inning, allowing back-to-back jacks and suddenly the rout was on as Chicago held an 8-1 lead. The Tigers did not give up.

Verlander Wins #21, Detroit Tigers Ambush White Sox 8-1

Chicago pitcher John Danks wasn't ready for the Tigers in the first inning of tonight's game. When Miguel Cabrera stole second base off Danks in the first (his catcher didn't have a chance to throw out the lumbering Tiger slugger), you had to know that this might be a good night for the team from "The D". Cabrera ended up scoring on a bloop single to left by Alex Avila, and the Tigers staked Justin Verlander to a 3-0 lead. That was more than enough for the Tiger ace, who struck out six in 7 and one third innings of work. The only blemish was a solo home run to White Sox catcher Tyler Flowers in the 8th inning.

Detroit Tigers Come Back, Then Blow Lead And Lose

Tiger pitching has been questionable at best on days when Justin Verlander and lately, Doug Fister aren't on the mound. Tiger prospect Jacob Turner got a spot start in this afternoon's game agains the Royals, and the 20-year old demonstrated that he still has much to learn. Turner lasted just 4 and a third innings, giving up 6 runs. His teammates would pick him up and he wouldn't take the loss.

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 trailing only 4-2 after 7 innings.

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 still being shut out at that point and found themselves trailing 1-0. The Tigers finally tied the game in the 8th on a clutch 2-out hit by Magglio Ordonez.

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 the Royals.

Detroit Tigers Sweep Cleveland, Lead is 4.5 Games

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. Detroit had a 7-0 lead after just 3 innings in this afternoon's game, and Tiger pitcher Rick Porcello was getting the Indian hitters to ground out with regularity. When Cleveland scored five runs in the 4th and chased Porcello, this one had all the markings of a disaster in the making.

Max Scherzer has been hot and cold this season. His electric arm shows the promise of possibly becoming a 20-game winner at some point in his young career.
