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 [...]
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
Playing baseball is best on natural grass. Why can’t watching it be, too? via Reilly – High and outside in Colorado – ESPN.
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.

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.

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 [...]

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.” [...]

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 [...]
