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 […]

Tigers Sloppy, But Good Enough In Win Over Cleveland

It was far from a textbook example of quality baseball, but not every win is going to be pretty. The Tigers were happy to take a split in the rain-shortened two game set against Cleveland at Comerica Park. Ian Kinsler was the catalyst, driving in four runs. His three-run homer in the fifth was the […]

Game 11: Tigers (6-4) vs. Indians (6-7), 7:05 PM, ET

The Tigers and Indians were supposed to last night. Mother Nature didn’t quite approve of that…so hopefully she is kinder today. The visiting Cleveland Indians will trot out… SP: Zach McAllister 1. Michael Bourn (CF) 2. Nick Swisher (1B) 3. Jason Kipnis (2B) 4. Carlos Santana (DH) 5. Michael Brantley (LF) 6. Asdrubal Cabrera (SS) […]

Homesick: Tigers Lose 3 of 5 in Cali + San Diego Rubber Match, 5-1

I think everyone is ready for a nice, long home stand. With 10 straight games in Comerica on the docket, hopefully the weather in the D will improve and make us quickly forget about this often frustrating California road trip, where the bullpen faltered a few times and the bats went flat more often than […]

Game 10: Tigers (6-3) @ Padres (4-7), 4:10 PM ET

Bleary eyed Detroit fans are looking forward to a west coast game that should end well before the witching hour, as Max Scherzer and his 1.20 ERA look to deliver a series win over the Padres, with the Tigers offense hopefully treating the 2013 AL Cy Young kinder than it has thus far. The bats […]

Game 9: Tigers (5-3) at Padres (4-6), 8:40 PM ET

After getting dominated by Andrew Cashner last night, the Tigers look to turn things around in San Diego with their ace on the mound, looking for his first win of the season (and his first hit of his career). The lineups: TIGERS SP: Justin Verlander 1. Rajai Davis (LF) 2. Ian Kinsler (2B) 3. Torii Hunter (RF) 4. Miguel Cabrera (1B) 5. Austin Jackson (CF) 6. Nick […]

Game 8: Tigers (5-2) @ Padres (3-6)

After a day off following the Tigers’ dramatic 7-6 extra innings victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers, the Tigers roll into town to take on former teammate Joaquín Benoit and the San Diego Padres. The Padres have struggled early on, winning only three of their first nine games, while the Tigers are enjoying first place […]

Five Overly Rushed Conclusions From the Tigers’ First Week

The Tigers have played a week’s worth of games now, so we’ll use this small sample size to draw a bunch of overarching conclusions about the state of the ballclub, because that’s what sports punditry entails. So here are some slapdash thoughts based on seven games of baseball…. 1. Andrew Romine should be getting a […]

Game 7: Tigers (4-2) @ Dodgers (6-3), 10:10 PM, ET

The Tigers will try to get back to their winning ways tonight when they face off against Josh Beckett and the Dodgers. The lineup looks a bit different tonight with Torii Hunter out after colliding with the wall in foul territory last night and Alex Avila getting the night off as well. Tigers: SP: Anibal […]
