  2. What happens to “the neighborhood play” if managers are given replay challenges?

    Oct 17, 2013, 9:12 AM EDT

    Drew Neighborhood play

    There was a classic neighborhood play in last night’s Sox-Tigers game. And it has me wondering about the future and instant replay. The scene: Austin Jackson on first base, Jose Iglesias at the plate. He grounds it to Pedroia who bobbles it, then flips it to Stephen Drew at short who tries to start a…

  3. Has John Farrell learned his lesson now?

    John Farrell

    Red Sox manager John Farrell allowed Clay Buchholz to give up five runs to the Tigers in Sunday’s ALCS Game 2, only to be bailed out by one swing from David Ortiz‘s bat. On Wednesday, there was no such rescue after Jake Peavy was allowed to surrender seven runs in three-plus innings in what turned…

    The American League Championship Series is 2-2. Tigers starter Doug Fister delivered six innings of one-run ball and the Detroit offense broke out in a major way in Wednesday night’s 7-3 ALCS Game 4 victory over the visiting Red Sox at Comerica Park. Fister dealt with at least one Boston baserunner in each of his…

    Game 4 of the ALCS has quickly become a rout. The Tigers scored five runs in a big second inning and just added two more runs in the bottom of the fourth to take a 7-0 lead over the Red Sox at Detroit’s Comerica Park. Austin Jackson, who was mired in a postseason slump and…

    Jake Peavy‘s fourth career postseason outing is off to a poor start in Detroit. A really, really poor start. Peavy made it through the first inning unscathed, but he allowed a single to Victor Martinez to open the bottom of the second and then issued a pair of walks to load the bases. Omar Infante…

  9. Tigers lose the momentum, but still have an edge

    Oct 14, 2013, 12:32 AM EDT

    ALCS - Detroit Tigers v Boston Red Sox - Game Two

    It’s not going to be the joyous plane ride home the Tigers were looking forward to, but achieving a split in Fenway, with Justin Verlander about to pitch in Game 3, is a great place for Jim Leyland’s team to be with up to five games remaining in the ALCS. There’s something to be said…

  10. Tigers break out the lumber in the sixth inning, take 5-0 lead in ALCS Game 2

    Oct 13, 2013, 10:20 PM EDT

    ALCS - Detroit Tigers v Boston Red Sox - Game Two

    Through the first 14 innings, the ALCS had been a pitcher-dominated affair. Anibal Sanchez and the Tiger bullpen held the Red Sox hitless through eight and two-thirds innings in Game 1 and Scherzer has held the Sox hitless through five in Game 2. To their credit, the Sox pitching has been nearly as good —…

    Daniel Nava

    Tigers closer Joaquin Benoit took the hill at Fenway Park in the ninth inning tonight asked not only to successfully wrap up Game 1 of the ALCS by the narrowest of margins (1-0), but to wrap up what could have been baseball’s first post-season combined no-hitter. Anibal Sanchez, Al Alburquerque, Jose Veras, and Drew Smyly…

  13. Tigers’ poor base running costs them twice in the fifth inning of ALCS Game 1

    Oct 12, 2013, 10:04 PM EDT

    Stephen Drew, Jhonny Peralta

    The Tigers were twice in good position to break a scoreless tie against Jon Lester and the Red Sox in the fifth inning of Game 1 of the ALCS, but poor base running decisions left them with nothing at the end of the inning. Jhonny Peralta led off with a double to left-center. Omar Infante…

    Division Series - Detroit Tigers v Oakland Athletics - Game Two

    The Tigers escaped the ALDS against the A’s despite scoring more than three runs just once in five games. They’re going to need to do better than that against the Red Sox, and it will have to start at the top with leadoff man Austin Jackson. Looking lost at the plate, Jackson went 0-for-5 with…

    “That home run right there, it couldn’t have come at a better time. It couldn’t have happened to a better guy.“ That was center fielder Austin Jackson commenting on Jhonny Peralta‘s huge three-run blast in Tuesday’s Game 4. The game-tying homer was his first in the six games since he returned from a 50-game PED…

    There will be a Game 5 in Oakland on Thursday. Tigers starter Doug Fister yielded seven hits, a walk and three earned runs over a shaky six-inning outing and the Detroit offense appeared lifeless in the early frames, but a three-run fifth, a two-run seventh and a three-run eighth gave the American League Central champions…

    The Tigers and Athletics played what could very well end up being the best game of the entire post-season tonight as starters Justin Verlander and Sonny Gray took the hill in opposition.
