Joe Nathan finds his balls? After searching and coming up short all season long, Nathan may have reached back into his old jock-strap and found what he was missing. Credit our GM for trading for another closer to properly motivate Jittery Joe, who promptly struck out the side, all on 1-2 counts, to save his 21st game. The Tigers manufactured [...]
Monday – Tigers 4, DBacks 3 Tuesday – DBacks 5, Tigers 4 Wednesday – Tigers 11, DBacks 5 Justin Verlander earned the win Monday. Detroit led 3-0 behind two home runs, one from Torii Hunter with a man on, then a solo shot from Austin Jackson. Arizona loaded them up after scoring two, but Verlander got a groundout to get out o [...]
“I’m going to a new team and that’s going to be my new family and I will do whatever they want me to do,” said Soria of the Tigers where he most likely will become a setup man to Joe Nathan. “I want to help them win the World Series, that’s what this is all about and I hope to help them out as much as I can [...]
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!

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 [...]
