  1. Phil Coke shows that anybody can pitch the ninth

    Oct 14, 2012, 8:08 PM EST

    Phil Coke

    Did you ever notice that when baseball broadcasters start talking about the ninth-inning mentality and about all the setup men who couldn’t handle the closer’s role, they never go on to name names? Moments after John Smoltz went on his little spiel about how not everyone can pitch the ninth Sunday, Phil Coke finished shutting down the…

    Raul Ibanez provided another dose of postseason heroics for the Yankees on Saturday evening in Game 1 of the ALCS, but it didn’t matter in the end. The Tigers rallied after Jose Valverde‘s ugly ninth-inning blowup, tacking on two runs in the top of the 12th inning in an eventual 6-4 victory in The Bronx.…

    Alex Rodriguez

    Alex Rodriguez got the start on Saturday, but he wasn’t around for the finish. After going 0-for-3, he was removed for pinch-hitter Eric Chavez with the Yankees down to the Tigers 4-0 in the eighth inning of Game 1 of the ALCS. Up with the bases loaded and two outs in the first, Rodriguez hit…

    The Tigers have suddenly jumped out to a 2-0 lead in this ALCS Game 1 Saturday at Yankee Stadium.

  8. Justin Verlander pitches Tigers past A’s and into ALCS

    Oct 12, 2012, 12:35 AM EST

    Justin Verlander

    Way too much Justin Verlander. Detroit’s ace held down the A’s for the second time in five games Thursday, pitching a complete-game shutout and striking out 11 as the Tigers won 6-0 to move on to the ALCS. Verlander fanned 22 in his two starts, setting a new record for strikeouts in a Divisional Series.…

    Austin Jackson doubled in Omar Infante in the third and then scored on a wild pitch as the Tigers jumped out to a 2-0 lead over the A’s in the deciding Game 5 of the ALDS on Thursday. Verlander has limited the A’s to a two-out double in the first and a two-out walk in…

    Detroit Tigers' Scherzer pitches against the Oakland Athletics during Game 4 of their MLB ALDS playoff baseball series in Oakland

    Tigers starter Max Scherzer has cruised through four innings Wednesday night in Game 4 of the ALDS, striking out five and throwing a modest 46 pitches with Detroit sporting a 2-0 lead.

  13. Offense a problem for these Tigers

    Oct 10, 2012, 12:08 AM EST

    Cliff Pennington, Delmon Young

    The Tigers possess MLB’s first Triple Crown winner in 45 years in Miguel Cabrera and a second premium bat in Prince Fielder, but the offense as a whole is really quite average. And even average seems kind given its performance so far against the A’s in the ALDS. Shut out in Tuesday’s loss, the Tigers…

  14. Brett Anderson dazzles in Game 3 of ALDS as Athletics shut out Tigers and stay alive

    brett anderson getty

    A’s left-hander Brett Anderson made only six starts during the regular season and had not pitched since September 19 because of an oblique strain, so there was reason for concern about how he’d fare in Game 3 of the ALDS on Tuesday night against the Tigers. It didn’t take long for those concerns to disappear.…

    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…

    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…

    Austin Jackson

    An eventful game in Detroit this afternoon: Miguel Cabrera gets hurt; Justin Verlander pitches fantastically — striking out 12 in nine innings — but gets the no-decision; Austin Jackson makes a pretty darn spectacular catch in right-center, saving a run in the top of the 10th inning; and Alex Avila wins it in the 11th…

    Miguel Cabrera

    Tigers 10, Indians 8: I was at this game, and I gotta tell ya, until the 9th inning it was one of the more lame, butt-dragging tie games you’ll ever see. Omar Infante and Austin Jackson kept hitting, but apart from that the highlight until then was Joe West getting all ejecty for no good…

    Josh Hamilton was far and away the AL’s best player for two months, but he’s definitely come back to the pack after hitting just .223 with four homers in June. He struck out 35 times last month, nearly matching his total of 39 times from April and May combined. That said, he still leads the…

    You knew it was coming. In truth, I think those in charge did a better job of picking this season’s All-Stars than they have in recent years. Still, I have some disagreements, even if none of them are quite as vehement as last season’s. Austin Jackson (OF Tigers) – Jackson’s DL stint probably cost him…
