Victory in Oakland

Detroit finished off the A’s with a 3-2 win in their own backyard. It was all Yoenis Cespedes, who paid back his old club with a three-run splash to secure the difference. Now, get ready for the Tigers’ pitching carousel! Alex Wilson gets the game ball for stepping up as the fifth option to start. Justin […]

Detroit Shuts Out Oakland

And we only needed one run to do it! Anthony Gose scored in the first inning, then it was 17 scoreless frames. Dave Price went seven innings before handing Joba the ball in the 8th. And Joakim Soria earned his 15th save of the season. The A’s left a plethora of runners on base. The […]

Hanging Us Out to Dry

Hanging Us Out to Dry

It’s the same, same old song: Brad doesn’t bunt. There was none more glaring than today’s 4-0 shutout, where three Tigers double plays cost us any run support. Shane “The Crane” gave up all four in one inning. Otherwise, we kept Oakland’s lineup in check. They tried to offer us some help behind three errors, […]

Brad Breaking Hearts

The Tigers just played the game of the year. But, thanks again, to improper management, the hearts in Detroit will silently weep. And this is for real. We scored eight fucking runs and lost 10-8. Here comes the breakdown: The Astros did some nice snarfing out the gate, hitting a triple with two on and […]

Where You At, Small Ball?

Beautiful sunny day in Michigan. Kyle Lobstein gave us a chance to win, nearly reaching six innings on three runs. He gave up one run early, but we responded the bottom half of the inning on an Anthony Gose double. It’s pretty much a dead horse now. But we’ll beat it one more time for […]

Handling Business

Big Pasta pitched quite well, going seven solid innings on his highest pitch total of the season and not allowing one earned run. Houston struck first with a pair of unearned runs to lead 2-0. Then, J.D. Martinez decided to even things up. After barely fouling one off to left, he annihilated the next pitch […]

Eleven Inning Affair

What a game. Detroit used eleven innings against the Houston Astros on a day game. Dave Price pitched quite well, striking out 12 free-swinging Astros along the way. He ran into some trouble, though, in the seventh, to create the drama. While Houston looked abysmal, the Tigers threatened often. However, the fruits of our labor […]

Miguel Cabrera Steals the Show

Detroit led off with consecutive quick at-bats, and the rain was pouring on a warm day in St. Louis. Miguel Cabrera, #24 of the Tigers, stepped up to bat. He worked a full count after fouling off an array of pitches, then crushed one right back to dead center (like last night). Welcome to the […]

“Bombs Away, Bombs Away!”

Those Detroit Tigers played a wonderful game against the National League last night. Shane Greene kept it low-scoring for the first several innings. Only Yoenis Cespedes left the yard in a 1-0 early lead. We tacked on a second when Anthony Gose tripled and was sacrificed home on an Ian Kinsler fly ball. Miguel Cabrera […]
