  2. Sonny Gray debunks need for playoff experience with stellar outing

    Oct 6, 2013, 12:42 AM EST

    ALDS Tigers Athletics Baseball

    The ALDS Game 2 narrative between the Tigers and Athletics involved the experienced ace in Justin Verlander and the rookie in Sonny Gray. Verlander, with over 70 post-season innings under his belt, would be calm, cool, and collected with all the TV cameras pointed in his direction. Gray, who spent most of the year with…

    Oct 6, 2013, 12:40 AM EST

    Division Series - Detroit Tigers v Oakland Athletics - Game Two

    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. The two right-handers traded zeroes through seven innings, each allowing just four hits, each walking two or fewer, each striking out at least…

    Division Series - Detroit Tigers v Oakland Athletics - Game Two

    Folks, if you’re not watching this game, flip over to TBS on your TV. If you’re not the TV-owning type, head to your nearest sports bar because you’re not going to want to miss the conclusion of this game, as it’s been a complete pitcher’s duel through the first two and a half hours. Tigers…

  6. Tigers get to Bartolo Colon to take an early 3-0 lead

    Oct 4, 2013, 9:51 PM EST

    Bartolo Colon

    Athletics starter Bartolo Colon got off to a very shaky start to kick off Game 1 of the ALDS against the Tigers. Austin Jackson doubled to right to lead off the inning. Colon then hit Torii Hunter with a pitch, and followed it up with a first-pitch meatball to the hobbled Miguel Cabrera, who drove…

  8. Henderson Alvarez with the unlikeliest of no-hitters

    Sep 29, 2013, 3:51 PM EST

    Henderson Alvarez

    Actually, it was prime no-hitter time: a meaningless game on the final day of the season. The opposing team had nothing to play for and thus started several backups. The umps were also looking to get things over with in a hurry. If there was ever a day for Henderson Alvarez to throw a no-no,…

  9. Henderson Alvarez completes wild walkoff no-hitter

    Sep 29, 2013, 2:41 PM EST

    Here’s something we definitely didn’t see coming. Marlins right-hander Henderson Alvarez has no-hit the American League Central-champion Tigers through seven innings Sunday in Miami. It’s not a fully-loaded Detroit lineup for Game 162, but Prince Fielder is in there along with Jhonny Peralta, Omar Infante and a couple other regulars. Miguel Cabrera, Austin Jackson, Victor…

  10. And That Happened: Tuesday’s scores and highlights

    Sep 25, 2013, 6:51 AM EST

    Chicago White Sox v Cleveland Indians

    Indians 5, White Sox 4: Unbelievable. Chris Perez blows a save in the top of the ninth and the ancient Jason Giambi picks him and the Indians up in the bottom, smacking a two-run walkoff homer. Still life in that old bat. Still life in the Indians, who remain in wild card position. Rangers 3,…

  11. Trailing by six runs in ninth, Tigers score six, win in 12

    Sep 21, 2013, 11:30 PM EST

    Andy Dirks

    Trailing 6-0 in the bottom of the ninth, the Tigers rallied for six runs against the White Sox bullpen to send the game into extra innings. They pushed across a bases-loaded run for the walk-off win in the 12th inning, reducing their magic number over the Indians in the AL Central to two. Tigers starter…

  12. Nick Castellanos collects first major league hit

    It wasn’t the prettiest — and actually should have been ruled an error — but Tigers top prospect Nick Castellanos registered his first career major league hit Saturday in the Tigers’ 4-3 loss to the Royals. Castellanos trickled a slow-roller off the end of his bat to Royals second baseman Emilio Bonifacio, who made a…

  13. Torii Hunter hits a three-run walkoff homer to steal a win from the A’s

    Aug 29, 2013, 4:31 PM EST

    Oakland Athletics v Detroit Tigers

    The A’s had smacked the Tigers around for three days and then sprung out to a 6-1 lead after five innings in their series wrapup against the Tigers today. All this with Miguel Cabrera sidelined after leaving the game with an abdominal injury. Max Scherzer looked destined for only his second loss of the year…

  14. Daisuke Matsuzaka roughed up by Tigers in Mets debut

    Aug 23, 2013, 9:30 PM EST

    Daisuke Matsuzaka

    The Indians released Japanese right-handed starter Daisuke Matsuzaka on Tuesday after he posted a 3.92 ERA in 103.1 innings with Triple-A Columbus. The Mets signed him yesterday and immediately inserted him into the rotation to make his debut in Queens against the heavy-hitting Tigers, his first Major League appearance since October 3, 2012. The Tigers…

    Before the scores, some important Batman news. You may want to scroll down past this, because I’m gonna take a bit of time here. In case you missed it last night, Ben Affleck has been cast as the Dark Knight in the upcoming Batman/Superman movie. Many people alerted me to this news last night the…

    Hal Steinbrenner

    The New York Post reports that Hal Steinbrenner called his baseball operations people to his Tampa office and demanded some answers yesterday: With questions about the lack of talent in the minor league system ready to help at the big league level, Steinbrenner gathered his department heads.

  17. Yankees win, A-Rod disappoints in home debut

    Aug 10, 2013, 12:05 AM EST

    Detroit Tigers v New York Yankees

    Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez went 0-for-4 in his season debut at Yankee Stadium and closer Mariano Rivera blew his second save in a row, but the Yankees won anyway thanks to a Brett Gardner walk-off single with the bases loaded in the bottom of the 11th. In the bottom of the first, Rodriguez strode…

    Tampa Bay Rays' Price pitches against Boston Red Sox  during MLB American League Baseball game in Boston

    Rays 5, Red Sox 1: David Price tossed a one-run, five hit complete game, with a solo homer by Mike Napoli the only real blemish. He needed a mere 97 pitches. That’s what happens when you throw 72 strikes. The Sox and Rays are once again tied in the loss column. Dodgers 8, Blue Jays…

    Jul 5, 2013, 6:16 AM EST

    Adam Dunn

    White Sox 3, Orioles 2: A walkoff homer for Adam Dunn won it, but seven shutout innings — with 11 strikeouts — from Jose Quintana helped make it possible. Athletics 1, Cubs 0: Offense-lovers need not apply. Dan Straily allowed only one hit in seven shutout innings. Travis Wood had six shutout innings of his…

    Lynn Henning of the Detroit News has an update on center fielder Austin Jackson‘s slow-moving rehabilitation from a strained left hamstring: “Threw today,” Jackson said Friday as he made it clear he will not be returning quickly from a left hamstring that began acting up two weeks ago and placed him on the disabled list…

    Austin Jackson Getty

    Austin Jackson is eligible to return from the disabled list on Monday, but it’s unlikely he’ll be ready by then.

    Austin Jackson

    Austin Jackson is headed to the disabled list with a hamstring injury and the Tigers have called up Avisail Garcia from Triple-A to replace him on the roster.
