The Tigers’ offense pulled off a rare feat against Rockies pitching on Saturday night: they scored in all eight innings, winning 11-5. They scored once in each of the first three innings, twice in the fourth, three times in the fifth, and once each in the sixth, seventh, and eighth innings.

According to STATS, it’s the first time the Tigers have scored in all eight innings of a┬ánine-inning home game since 1912. It appears that the Blue Jays were the last team to accomplish the feat, victimizing the Yankees on April 29, 2006. That is unofficial to my knowledge, however.

Three Tigers homered: Miguel Cabrera (solo), Victor Martinez (three-run), and J.D. Martinez (solo). Three Tigers had three hits each: Rajai Davis, Ian Kinsler, and Alex Avila.

    Yeah and they’ll get shut out tomorrow. That’s just how this team rolls

      That’s how all MLB teams roll. If a team averages 4 runs a game, it doesn’t mean they score 4 points every game.

        I didn’t know any team scored points in any game in baseball.

    To my knowledge, the Tigers had never pulled this feat before.
    It did happen in the Toronto/Yankees game of April 29, 2006, but the score was 17-6 for New York, so guess which team scored in every inning in which they came to bat. Hint: not the Jays.
    No AL team has ever scored in all 9 innings; this was the 7th time an AL team has scored in all 8 innings in which they batted.
    Since 1900, 3 NL teams have scored in all 9 innings, most recently the Rockies at the Cubs in 1999.

      Sleepy, that is unlikely as, sadly, he’s been deceased for a year and a half.

    The Tigers last did this 102 yrs ago.

      OK, I’m not sure what your link was supposed to tell me about the Tigers’ 1912 season, but what I found was dozens of snap shots of someone’s visits to minor league games and various museums. Can you be a little, no, a lot more specific?

        It’s a link to my website. Simple as that. Thanks for stopping by!

        OK. First, nice of you to snare traffic with an apparently false claim that the Tigers had previously achieved the feat they pulled the other night. A list at Baseball Almanac, a really terrific website BTW, does not include a Tigers 1912 entry.
        Second, free advice: I suggest you modify your web page by cleaning up the clutter.
