Think about what you just lost…
Max Scherzer earned the win, and Miguel Cabrera launched a two-run home run to win the All-Star game for the AL. Ian Kinsler snarfed the game’s final National Leaguer on a groundout to second that he sent to first… The AL wins home-field advantage for the World Series!
I just love how one of the pitcher’s teammates swoops in and lays this kid out… you’re going against an entire baseball team, boy!
On Saturday, Rick Porcello earned his Major League-leading 12th win of the year. The Tigers won 5-1 in Kansas City. It was a 2-1 game until the 9th inning, when J.D. Martinez unloaded for another 9th inning bomb. Then, Alex Avila blasted a home run with Torii Hunter on base for the final score. Sunday, Justin Verlander nearly earned us the sw [...]
Anibal Sanchez surrendered one run in seven innings of work, aided by some fancy glove work in the 7th from Eugenio Suarez. The Tigers scored twice to earn him the win. The first came on the game’s opening rally, an Ian Kinsler RBI single after an Austin Jackson leadoff double. The go-ahead was earned on a Miguel Cabrera sacrifice fly. [...]
If you thought 14 was impressive, apparently, Detroit was just getting started. They drove in three runs to start the game and didn’t look back. It was 3-1, 6-1, 6-2, 14-2, and that’s all I can remember barring the final, 16-4. It was only one home run, a solo blast from Torii to begin that eight run inning. Otherwise, it was more [...]
We lova the interleague! 4-1 final in Motown. Max Scherzer earns the W, holding Los Angeles to just four hits (and two from Puig – what can you do). Joba Chamberlain shut down the 8th inning, striking out two Dodgers. It was so inspiring Joe Nathan cramped his style, even ending the game with a swagg strikeout. #Goddamn
After five runs, four hits, and one walk to begin the game, Justin Verlander redeemed himself with only one hit and one walk over the final five innings he pitched. That pitching would be necessary, as Detroit stormed back to score 14 unanswered runs on 20 hits. Bammm. Verlander composed himself to get through the second 1-2-3, setting us up [...]
Credit to Detroit – the fans remaining and the players could have folded going into the bottom of the ninth. Instead, we denied another Tampa pitcher from throwing a complete game. J.D. Martinez led off the last frame with a solo shot, putting us within one swing down 7-3. Then, while David Price could see his nine innings at the end of [...]
