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…

For the second time in the last six weeks, Miguel Cabrera got tossed mid at-bat Monday, this time getting ejected by Brian Gorman in the first inning for arguing that he was hit by a pitch. MLB.com has the video, though it’s not yet embeddable. Cabrera took a Chris Sale slider off his back knee,…

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…

From beat writer Tom Gage of the Detroit News comes word that Miguel Cabrera is being held out of the Tigers’ starting lineup for Wednesday afternoon’s series-finale against the Nationals.

Less than half of the Giants’ current roster remains from the team that won the World Series in 2010. There are only 11 holdovers, or 12 if you include Game 1 starter Barry Zito despite his not being on the actual playoff roster in 2010. Carl Steward of the San Jose Mercury News has the…

It’s not quite Mariano Rivera throwing out the first pitch at Yankee Stadium before Game 3 of the ALDS, but this should be pretty cool: Ivan Rodriguez will throw out the first pitch tonight at Comerica Park.

Giants 10, Astros 0: A simply unbelievable night for Matt Cain. As we noted last night, this was among the best games ever pitched in the history of baseball. Perfection is one thing.
