Justin Verlander Wins #24, Detroit Tigers Blank A’s 3-0

Justin Verlander is having a special season. Oakland pitcher Guillermo Moscoso matched zeros with Verlander until the 6th inning when Austin Jackson drilled one over the wall in dead center for the first Tiger hit of the day, and suddenly Verlander and the Tigers had the lead. Verlander would not give the Athletics any hope after that. JV pitched 8 innings and only gave up three hits in earning his 24th win against 5 losses. Jose Valverde worked a 1-2-3 9th to put this one away and earn his 46th save in 46 attempts.

Detroit Tigers Win 10th Straight, Whip White Sox 14-4

Rick Porcello got off to a rough start, walking two and loading the bases in the first inning against the Chicago White Sox. He would find a way to wriggle out of that jam trailing only 1-0, then got into a groove to shut down the Sox while his offense continued to put a beat-down on Chicago pitching. The Tigers pounded out 21 hits en route to a 14-4 laugher over the Sox. The Tiger magic number to clinch the American League Central is now 6.

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.

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 Beat K.C. 4-3, Verlander Wins 16th

On the very first pitch of the game, Alex Gordon of the Royals blasted a Justin Verlander fastball deep into centerfield. The fence at Kaufman Stadium is 410 in dead center. This one went 411, into the glove of Austin Jackson who leaped and pulled it back for a long out. That play set the tone for today's game. Kansas City would come close, but victory would be snatched away from them by the Tigers.

Justin Verlander Flirts With No-Hitter, Detroit Tigers Hang On To Win 3-2

Odds are good that one of today's starting pitchers might win the American League Cy Young award.  Justin Verlander made his case for the pitching honor by no-hitting the Angels through 7 and 2/3rds innings.  An errror by Verlander and another defensive boo-boo allowed two Angel runs to score in the 8th to make this a closer game than it should have been.
