Scherzer, Add-On Runs Push Tigers To Series Split

Stop me if you’ve read this before: the Tigers got a strong outing from their starter and ended up needing a bunch of add-on runs late, but got enough to win 7-4 in spite of their bullpen and some shoddy defense. Max Scherzer continued his fine start to the season, striking out 10 batters and […]

Game 18: White Sox (10-11) @ Tigers (10-7)

Last night it looked as if the Tigers would cruise to a win – the bullpen had other ideas though. Tonight the Tigers need to have at least six good innings from Smyly (seven would be awesome) and then a combination of Ian Krol, Al Alburquerque, (good) Joba Chamberlain and the non-Tigers version of Joe […]

They are what we thought they were: Miggy Miggy’s, Coke Coke’s, Tigs Win 8-6

Yes, I’m channeling 2009 Dennis Green for my theme. Here’s a link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SWmQbk5h86w to help set the mood. Three of the many topics to spark concern among Tigers fans in this young season have been the “demise of Miggy”, “Avila nepotism” and “Phil Coke dumpster fires”. I think I speak for most of us here at Walkoff […]

Game 17: White Sox (10-10) @ Tigers (9-7)

Down and dirty tonight, folks. “Bossmus” throwing us a few curves in Game 17 with Rajai Davis starting in Center (and leading off ) and J.D Martinez getting his first start in Left. Jinkies. Also, the bottom of the White Sox order has cornered the market on Garcias. Lineups: SP: Charlie Leesman 1. Jordan Danks (CF) 2. Marcus Semien (3B) […]

Game 16: White Sox (9-10) @ Tigers (9-6)

A Comedy of Errors: Tigers Win 2-1

Angels starting pitcher Hector Santiago headed to the clubhouse for a wing repair after 5 2/3 innings today, due more to the egregious fielding sins of his teammates in the 1st and 6th innings than to any fatal flaws in his pitching performance. That said, his biggest wound was at least partially self-inflicted, as Hector […]

Game 15: Angels (8-9) @ Tigers (8-6)

Happy Easter, Tigers fans (if you’re into that sort of thing)! Glad you landed here in your hunt for today’s lineups. What say we hop right into it? SP: Hector Santiago 1. J.B. Shuck (LF) 2. Mike Trout (CF) 3. Albert Pujols (1B) 4. Ian Stewart (3B) 5. Howie Kendrick (2B) 6. David Freese (DH) 7. Hank Conger (C) 8. Brennan Boesch (RF) 9. Erick Aybar (SS) SP: Rick Porcello 1. Rajai Davis (R) LF 2. Ian Kinsler (R) […]

Scherzer Pitches Tigers to First Win Over Angels Since Time Immemorial

The headline is a slight exaggeration. The last time the Tigers beat the Angels before today was August 26, 2012. Ervin Santana was the Angel starter that day. Prince Fielder and Delmon Young both homered off him, Quintin Berry and Andy Dirks drove in runs, and Jeff Baker was Detroit’s starting third baseman that day. […]

No Smiles as Tigers Fall to Angels, 11-6

Drew Smyly struggled mightily with his command and Jered Weaver was Jered Weaver for most of the game, as the Tigers dropped a disappointingly messy 11-6 affair to the Angels. The Tigers, who were down 11-1 at one point, made it mildly interesting in the seventh inning, after Mike Scioscia pulled his starters from the […]

Game 13: Angels (7-8) @ Tigers (7-5)

The Tigers look to build on their winning ways, as they send Drew Smyly to the mound in his first start of the season. Smyly will be on a pitch count tonight, so the Tigers sent Tyler Collins to Toledo and brought up reliever Justin Miller for bullpen insurance. The Angels will be countering with […]
