    Nationals left-hander Gio Gonzalez hasn’t allowed a hit through two innings, but he has issued five walks and thrown some wild pitches, allowing the Cardinals to take an early 2-1 lead in Game 1 of the NLDS.

    Don Kelly

    The Tigers designated Don Kelly for assignment in early August. And now he’s a postseason hero. The 32-year-old utilityman scored a game-tying tally as a pinch-runner in the bottom of the eight inning then hit a walkoff sacrifice fly to deep right-center field in the bottom of the ninth as Detroit topped Oakland 5-4 in Game 2…

    The A’s tied this ALDS Game 2 in the top of the eighth inning when Yoenis Cespedes raced home from third base on a Joaquin Benoit wild pitch. And now the Tigers have answered in a similar fashion. Delmon Young and Jhonny Peralta hit back-to-back singles to open the bottom of the eighth then advanced…

    A’s left-hander Sean Doolittle had MVP candidate Miguel Cabrera beat with two runners on and two outs in the bottom of the seventh inning, inducing what looked to be a flyout to deep center field. But Coco Crisp failed to secure a basket catch and both runners raced home, giving the Tigers a sudden 3-2…

    Tigers starter Doug Fister has been pretty sharp this afternoon at a chilly Comerica Park, boasting eight strikeouts through seven innings against the A’s. But leadoff walks are murder. And the one Fister just issued to Seth Smith could be a real haunter. Smith was sacrificed over to second by George Kottaras then scored on a…

  7. A’s and Tigers trade runs in third, Game 2 of ALDS sits tied

    Reds ace Johnny Cueto was lifted from Saturday night’s NLDS Game 1 victory over the Giants after just eight pitches because of back spasms. He appeared to be experiencing a considerable amount of discomfort while he sauntered from the mound to the visitors dugout, but some positive early signs have given hope to the Cincinnati…

    alexi ogando getty

    Rangers right-hander Alexi Ogando spent nearly the entire 2012 campaign in the bullpen and had a great deal of success, finishing with a 3.27 ERA, a 1.00 WHIP and a 66/17 K/BB ratio in 66 innings. But he is not satisfied with that setup role. According to beat writer Richard Durrett of ESPN Dallas, Ogando…

    Veteran right-hander Jeremy Guthrie found new life when he was traded from the Rockies to the Royals on July 20, posting a 3.16 ERA and a 1.13 WHIP in his final 14 starts. He’s set to hit the open market five days after the conclusion of the 2012 World Series, so the Kansas City front…

    The Giants’ offense was dormant through the first five innings of this NLDS Game 1 despite the early exit of one Johnny Cueto. But it woke up in the sixth. MVP candidate Buster Posey hit a leadoff homer over the left field wall, then Hunter Pence smoked a Mat Latos pitch that was caught by…

    Brutal development for the Reds out in San Fran. Staff ace Johnny Cueto was lifted from Saturday night’s NLDS Game 1 against the Giants just eight pitches in after appearing to tweak his side or back on a delivery to No. 2 hitter Marco Scutaro. Cueto immediately hunched over after the toss and walked off…

    It didn’t look good for the Tigers when A’s speedster Coco Crisp hit a leadoff home run in the top of the first inning of Saturday night’s ALDS Game 1 in Detroit. But that feeling changed pretty quickly. Verlander settled in after Crisp’s shot to right field, yielding just two hits over the rest of…

    A’s right-hander Pat Neshek undoubtedly took the mound with a heavy heart when he was called from the bullpen in the seventh inning of tonight’s ALDS Game 1 against the Tigers — only three days after losing his infant son just 23 hours after childbirth. But the side-armer looked plenty composed. Neshek induced a fielder’s…

    alex avila getty

    Tigers catcher Alex Avila played through an injured knee last postseason and wound up batting just .073/.116/.146 in 44 plate appearances. It appears he’ll be much more of a contributor this time around. The 25-year-old launched a solo home run in the bottom of the fifth inning of tonight’s ALDS Game 1 against the Athletics,…

  21. Jarrod Parker fumbles, Tigers take third-inning lead

    Oct 6, 2012, 7:26 PM EDT

    omar infante getty

    A’s starter Jarrod Parker nearly pitched his way around a one-out double from the Tigers’ Omar Infante in the bottom of the third inning of this ALDS Game 1, but the Oakland right-hander misplayed a Quintin Berry slow-roller near the first base bag and the potential third out turned into Detroit’s go-ahead score when Infante…

    The leadoff men are the stars so far in Game 1. Tigers ace Justin Verlander allowed a solo homer to Coco Crisp in the very top of the first inning, then issued a one-out walk to Yoenis Cespedes before escaping the frame with back-to-back strikeouts of Brandon Moss and Josh Reddick. Verlander is no stranger…

    Tigers slugger Miguel Cabrera entered tonight’s season finale against the Royals ranking first in the American League in batting average, homers and runs batted in.

    Jered Weaver‘s 2012 ends on a slightly sour note. The right-hander was pulled after the first inning of the Angels’ season finale Wednesday against the Mariners due to what’s being labeled “fatigue.” Not necessarily arm fatigue — just general exhaustion. He allowed two earned runs on two hits and two walks before making his premature…
