    Al Alburquerque

    Tigers reliever Al Alburquerque‘s win was sealed with a kiss Sunday, as he opted to give the baseball a little sugar after snagging Yoenis Cespedes‘ comebacker to end the top of the ninth. Alburquerque kissed the ball before throwing it over to Prince Fielder for the out in a tie game. It was the only…

    The Athletics have officially announced their roster for their series against the Tigers in the ALDS, which will begin tonight in Detroit.

    You can’t predict baseball, but you can at least lay out the parameters. So let’s take a look at what the Tigers and Athletics have in store for us in the American League Division Series. The Teams Detroit Tigers (88-74) vs. Oakland Athletics (94-68) The Matchups Game 1 Saturday in Detroit: Jarrod Parker vs. Justin Verlander…

  7. Tigers beat Royals to clinch AL Central

    Oct 1, 2012, 11:07 PM EDT

    Miguel Cabrera, Billy Butler

    The White Sox emphatically defeated the Indians 11-0 on Monday night, but it wasn’t nearly enough. The Tigers came through to beat the Royals 6-3 to clinch the AL Central. Miguel Cabrera went 4-for-5 with a homer in the win to move closer to the Triple Crown. He raised his average to .329, pushing him…

  8. Tigers win, White Sox fall three back with three to play

    Sep 30, 2012, 5:32 PM EDT

    Prince Fielder

    The Tigers bested the Twins 2-1 in Minnesota on Sunday, but the White Sox failed to keep pace,  losing 6-2 to the Rays to fall three games back in the AL Central with three to play. B.J. Upton hit his 27th and 28th homers for Tampa Bay, and David Price was in control, yielding two…

  9. Please, do not refer to Alex Avila as having a “mild” concussion

    Sep 20, 2012, 12:30 PM EDT

    Alex Avila

    The Tigers posted their lineup for today’s game a little while ago and Alex Avila is still not on it. Why? Alex Avila was missing from the Tigers’ lineup for the second straight game Tuesday night and it was revealed after the Tigers’ 12-2 victory that Avila is suffering from mild concussion symptoms. The catcher…

  10. Alex Avila dealing with headache after collision with Prince Fielder

    Sep 17, 2012, 8:57 PM EDT

    Alex Avila

    Alex Avila was held out of the starting lineup this afternoon against the White Sox after he hurt his jaw in a collision with teammate Prince Fielder during yesterday’s game, but the hope was that he wouldn’t have to miss much time after he passed a concussion test. However, Tigers manager Jim Leyland told Chris…

  11. White Sox clip Tigers to open up three-game lead

    Sep 17, 2012, 6:10 PM EDT

    A.J. Pierzynski, Addison Reed

    It wasn’t exactly a classic duel, but the White Sox put themselves another game up in the AL Central by beating the Tigers 5-4 in Monday’s makeup game. The game’s decisive play took place in the fifth, when Dayan Viciedo hit a grounder to short with the bases loaded and one out. Jhonny Peralta decided…

  12. The Tigers in a nutshell

    Sep 17, 2012, 4:51 PM EDT

    Infante Fielder Error

    The game is still going on — as I write this the White Sox are leading the Tigers 5-4 in the eighth — but a play that happened in the bottom of the fifth sums up the frustration of the Tigers season. Bases loaded, one out and Dayan Viciedo at the plate. Doug Fister, a…

    Today Buster Olney speculates about where Josh Hamilton may wind up.  He runs through any number of teams, notes that there are either fit or payroll problems, and ultimately lands on the Tigers, noting that (a) they have a spot in left field for Hamilton: and (b) they have recently been something of a free…

  14. Alex Avila is out of today’s lineup

    Sep 17, 2012, 12:32 PM EDT

    Alex Avila

    The Tigers will be without their starting catcher today as Alex Avila is still apparently feeling the effects of his collision with Prince Fielder today — who wouldn’t be? — and is being held out of the Tigers-White Sox game. The good news: it appears to only be a sore jaw, not a concussion, meaning…

  15. And That Happened: Wednesday’s scores and highlights

    Sep 13, 2012, 5:30 AM EDT

    St Louis Cardinals v San Diego Padres

    Brewers 8, Braves 2; Phillies 3, Marlins 1; Padres 3, Cardinals 2: Um, yeah, this keeps happening. The Cardinals, beneficiaries of an epic collapse by the Braves last year are themselves collapsing. And Philly and Milwaukee look like they’ll never lose again.  Just insanity in the NL wild card race these days. It’s kinda great.…

  16. Kittens come up short again in 6-1 loss to White Sox

    Sep 10, 2012, 11:40 PM EDT

    Austin Jackson

    Going 0-for-10 with runners in scoring position isn’t a recipe for success. Since sweeping the White Sox from Aug. 31-Sept. 2, the Tigers have been tamed at the plate: Sept. 3: Lost 2-3 vs. Clev Sept. 4: Lost 2-3 vs. Clev Sept. 5: Won 7-1 vs. Clev Sept. 7: Lost 2-3 at LAA Sept. 8:…

  17. Mike Trout … [yawn] … does some more incredible things

    Sep 9, 2012, 12:08 PM EDT

    trout getty

    Angels phenom Mike Trout was at it again Saturday night in Anaheim, leading off a 6-1 victory over the Tigers with a home run then ending the game by robbing Prince Fielder at the center field wall. The big fly was Trout’s 26th of the 2012 season and the home run-robbing grab was his fourth.…

  18. Miguel Cabrera is AL’s Player of the Month, but not the Tigers’

    Sep 4, 2012, 6:23 PM EDT

    Miguel Cabrera

    How’s that for silliness? Miguel Cabrera was recognized Tuesday by the BBWAA as the American League’s Player of the Month for August, but he didn’t get the same honor from the Detroit chapter in the vote for Tigers’ Player of the Month. Instead, Detroit writers picked Prince Fielder, and justifiably so. Here are the August stats for…

    Cliff Lee

    I looked at the schedule as I sat down to write this and noted that, even including the postponed game, there were only 14 games yesterday. Rays-A’s played Thursday-Saturday, leaving yesterday off to avoid conflicts with the Republican National Convention. Guess you couldn’t expect the RNC to compromise, so … Anyway, it was weird and…

  20. Justin Verlander fans 14 to defeat Yankees

    Aug 6, 2012, 10:53 PM EDT

    Justin Verlander

    Justin Verlander became the first pitcher since Boston’s Pedro Martinez in 1999 to strike out at least 14 Yankees in a 7-2 victory for the Tigers on Monday. Verlander pitched eight innings and allowed both runs in easily outdueling Ivan Nova on the night. Prince Fielder and Miguel Cabrera homered off Nova, who ended up…

    Rangers 11, Angels 10: Holy schnikes! The Angels jumped out to a 6-0 lead and the fans were booing Yu Darvish and the local nine. Then the comeback. Make that the comebacks. Four runs in the fifth and then single runs in the eighth and ninth to force extras. Then, down by three in the…

  22. Brewers manager Ron Roenicke likes career-long outfielder Corey Hart at first base

    Aug 1, 2012, 2:19 PM EDT

    corey hart getty

    Mat Gamel got hurt and Taylor Green didn’t hit, so the Brewers turned to Corey Hart as Prince Fielder‘s replacement at first base and … well, manager Ron Roenicke likes it a lot. Hart had started just two career games at first base prior to this season–compared to nearly 7,000 innings as an outfielder–but he’s…

  23. Tigers get Anibal Sanchez and Omar Infante from Marlins

    Jul 23, 2012, 5:45 PM EDT

    Anibal Sanchez

    While the baseball world waits to see if Ryan Dempster to the Braves actually happens, the Marlins and Tigers have pulled off an even bigger trade. Jon Morosi of FOXSports.com reports that Miami is sending right-hander Anibal Sanchez and infielder Omar Infante to Detroit. According to his colleage Ken Rosenthal the Marlins will get pitching…

    Los Angeles Angels v Detroit Tigers

    Tom Fornelli of South Side Asylum captured some wonderfulness from yesterday’s Tigers-Angels game. RIP, Maicer Izturis: What say you about that “slide,” Prince Fielder? “I just don’t know how to slide,” Fielder said after the game. “I’m trying to get there. I just want to be safe. So, however I can get there, I just try…

    Prince Fielder Getty

    We made it, you guys. Another Home Run Derby is in the rear view mirror, as Prince Fielder defeated Jose Bautista in the finals tonight to take home this year’s crown. It was Fielder’s second Home Run Derby win, the other coming back in 2009 in St. Louis. Ken Griffey, Jr., who won in 1994, 1998 and…
