Tigers Beat White Snarfs 8-6

Cabrera. The Tigers trailed 1-0 in the bottom of the first behind, once again, leaving the announcers’ volume too high. Once I adjusted, Miguel Cabrera singled Ian Kinsler home to tie the game. Cabrera continued his day at the plate with a two-run homer. The Tigers scored five runs that inning. Later on, Detroit tacked on two more runs [...]

Tigers Take Series from Angels

Detroit gave up 11 runs in the opener, but proved they could play better all-around ball by taking the next two games. Max Scherzer and Rick Porcello pitched magnificently

My Brother’s Birthday at the Ti...

As my brother and I pulled up at the stadium to look for parking, I had a moment: the sight of the stadium in front of me was stunning to see. It’s really chilling to be awestruck as an adult, it brings you right back to being a kid. I was feeling good from the get go. We made our way in, and I broke the ice to a Ravens fan, right next [...]

Tigers Split Series

I will be writing a proper write up of my brother and mine’s amazing day at Comerica Park Wednesday, April 16, once snarf gets his rest. That’s right – it was two days worth of rest-amazing. We really had a blast.

“The Oasis”

I thought this was so spot on I had to post it: “People from foreign non-baseball countries often have trouble understanding why baseball is America’s pastime. The real reason why baseball is so important to America is because every baseball game is surreal and nostalgic. Nothing can beat the moment when you walk in the ballpark and you [...]

Tigers 6, Padres 2

Justin Verlander was a one man show. Verlander threw seven innings, only surrendered two runs, struck out eight, walked one, got two hits, and scored. Goddamn. It was his first hit after 27 unsuccessful at bats. He said after the game the other guys have been ragging him every year with new jokes, and he had a big smile at first base after he [...]

Tigers Prevail in Extra Innings

Let’s skip the glossy parts and get right to the meat: Joe Nathan blew another save. And got another win. The Tigers led 6-3 when Nathan entered the bottom of the ninth. As I ate my corndog, everything seemed ok. Then the first run came in via a solo home run. No outs, 6-4. WTF? (I took my plate into the kitchen: “Bad plate.” [...]

Tigers Tie It in 9th, Botch in 10th

Max Scherzer was snarfed out of a game #2 win, so this time he received some win/loss redemption. 007 struck out eight in seven innings of works, surrendering two earned runs. He left with the game Dodgers 2, Detroit 1. We made up for it this time. The Tigers put on an inspiring rally to tie it in the top of the 9th. Ian Kinsler led off with [...]
