Prince Fielder

  1. Bob Melvin gets bailed out by overpowering Verlander

    Oct 10, 2013, 11:37 PM EDT

    Bob Melvin

    The A’s made the most impetuous decision of the postseason in starting Sonny Gray over Bartolo Colon in Wednesday’s Game 5, choosing a rookie over the guy who finished second in the AL in ERA based on one excellent performance. And how’d the follow that up? By treating Game 5 against a completely dominant Justin…

  3. Tigers force ALDS Game 5 with 8-6 victory over A’s

    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…

  4. Tigers tie ALDS Game 4 on Jhonny Peralta homer

    Oct 8, 2013, 6:43 PM EDT

    jhonny peralta tigers getty

    Detroit’s bats have finally, desperately come alive. After leadoff singles from Prince Fielder and Victor Martinez in the bottom of the fifth inning, shortstop-turned-outfielder Jhonny Peralta slugged a Dan Straily fastball over the left field fence at Comerica Park, tying this ALDS Game 4 at 3-3. A’s left fielder Yoenis Cespedes climbed high atop the…

  5. A’s have early Game 4 lead against punchless Tigers

    Oct 8, 2013, 6:18 PM EDT

    If the Detroit offense can’t get something working soon, it’ll be lights out for the Tigers’ 2013 season. A’s starter Dan Straily is working on a no-hitter through four innings of this ALDS Game 4 at a beautifully-sun-lit but less-than-enthusiastic Comerica Park. Straily has surrendered just one baserunner — Prince Fielder, on a second-inning hit-by-pitch…

  9. Max Scherzer’s strong effort leads Tigers to victory in Game 1 of ALDS

    Oct 5, 2013, 1:03 AM EDT

    Max Scherzer

    Max Scherzer led the league in wins with 21 and WHIP with 0.97. He also logged the second-most double-digit strikeout games with eight, trailing the 12 of Yu Darvish. Among Game 1 starters on the American League side of the playoffs, Scherzer had to be the scariest and the Athletics saw exactly why tonight. The…

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

    Oct 4, 2013, 9:51 PM EDT

    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…

  13. Tweet of the Day: Got a brain injury? #playyousissies

    joe mauer twins getty

    Given how many careers have been derailed by concussions and all we’ve begun to find out about the ugly long-term impact of brain injuries on former athletes it seems unfathomable to me that a prominent veteran mainstream media member would still be ripping players for not playing through a concussion. And yet here’s this from…

  14. Henderson Alvarez with the unlikeliest of no-hitters

    Sep 29, 2013, 3:51 PM EDT

    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,…

  15. Henderson Alvarez completes wild walkoff no-hitter

    Sep 29, 2013, 2:41 PM EDT

    henderson alvarez getty

    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…

    Prince Fielder and his father, Cecil Fielder, have had a rocky relationship over the years, but they shared a moment yesterday at Marlins Park in Miami. As you’ll see in the video below, Cecil came down near the dugout to greet Prince and say hello to some of his teammates. Whether Prince and his dad…

  17. Brandon Phillips names his All-Swag Team

    Sep 27, 2013, 9:05 PM EDT

    brandon phillips

    Jon Morosi of FOX Sports spoke with Reds second baseman Brandon Phillips, mostly about swag. Phillips says that baseball needs more of it, saying, “That’s exactly why African-Americans don’t play baseball. [There’s] no passion in the game. You’ve got to be like a robot. Look at basketball. Look at football. When you make an exciting…

    Andrew McCutchen, Jean Segura

    At some point in the eighth inning, I remember going out to concourse of old Fulton County Stadium in Atlanta and watching Atlanta Braves fans slowly shuffle toward the exits and their cars and another long baseball off-season. It is all well and good to say that baseball fans should stay to the end but…

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

    Sep 21, 2013, 11:30 PM EDT

    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…

    Prince Fielder Getty

    In the top of the fifth inning this afternoon against the Mariners, Prince Fielder attempted to chase down a foul ball off the bat of catcher Mike Zunino. While he was unable to catch the ball, he didn’t walk away completely empty-handed. The best part about that is that the fan appeared to be completely…

  21. Tigers will have Jhonny Peralta play left field to prep for return from suspension

    Sep 16, 2013, 3:55 PM EDT

    Peralta sign Reuters

    Last week the Tigers announced that Jhonny Peralta would start working out with the team again in preparation for potentially coming back from his 50-game suspension for the playoffs, but if he does rejoin the team apparently it won’t be at shortstop. Peralta has been the Tigers’ starting shortstop for the past three seasons, starting…

  22. Chris Davis joins the 50-homer club

    Sep 13, 2013, 9:26 PM EDT

    New York Yankees v Baltimore Orioles

    Orioles first baseman Chris Davis became the first Major Leaguer to hit 50 home runs in a single season since Jose Bautista hit 54 in 2010. With the game tied 3-3 in the top of the eighth, Davis drove a Steve Delabar 2-2 change-up to left-center for his milestone home run, putting the Orioles ahead…

  23. Eric Hosmer is quietly having a really good year at age 23

    Sep 9, 2013, 1:50 PM EDT

    Detroit Tigers v Kansas City Royals

    Royals first baseman Eric Hosmer had a very nice rookie season as a 21-year-old in 2011, but then dropped off significantly last year and continued to struggle early on this season. There were even jokes made when Team USA chose the former No. 3 overall pick to replace Mark Teixeira in the World Baseball Classic…

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

    Aug 29, 2013, 4:31 PM EDT

    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…

    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…
