    This was a day of missed opportunities for the Royals.

  2. Video: Torii Hunter saves two runs on sprawling catch

    Sep 14, 2014, 10:22 AM EDT

    Torii Hunter is 39 years old and his defense has rated very poorly this season in the outfield, but he made a game-saving catch in the Tigers’ 5-4 defeat of the Indians on Saturday night at Comerica Park …

  3. Settling the Score: Saturday’s results

    Sep 14, 2014, 8:58 AM EDT

    The Tigers were trailing the Indians heading into the bottom of the eighth inning Saturday night at Detroit’s Comerica Park and a loss would have put them back behind the Royals — who defeated the Red Sox on Saturday — in the American League Central standings. That’s when Alex Avila came through with probably his biggest hit of what has been a tough 2014 …

  4. And That Happened: Sunday’s scores and highlights

    The Yankees are, in my view anyway, unlikely to make the playoffs. Yet they refuse, Rasputin-like, to die.

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

    Bases loaded walk

    A bases-loaded walk helped the Tigers win a game. A walkoff plunking gave the Cardinals the win. And the crew in Chicago couldn’t get a tarp on the field. Can anyone around here play this game anymore?

  6. Torii Hunter is willing to take a reduced role going forward

    Jun 24, 2014, 5:03 PM EDT

    Given how he’s playing these days, he’ll have to. But it’s nice to hear him say it.

    Three days, three come-from-behind wins for the Rockies over the Giants.

  8. Twins demote Josmil Pinto back to Triple-A

    Jun 11, 2014, 4:16 PM EDT

    Josmil Pinto Twins

    One side effect of the Twins signing Kendrys Morales to be their everyday designated hitter is that it pushed Josmil Pinto out of the lineup and, it turns out, back to the minors.

  9. Everything you wanted to know about baseball’s unwritten rules. And lots of stuff you don’t.

    Crols Gomez Brian McCann

    Every man’s gotta have a code. Even a silly, antiquated and contradictory one like baseball players have.

  10. Yu Darvish nearly shocked Torii Hunter to death with an eephus pitch

    May 23, 2014, 10:47 AM EDT

    Yu Darvish

    The only thing better than Yu Darvish busting out an eephus pitch is Torii Hunter’s reaction

  11. And That Happened: Sunday’s scores and highlights

    May 19, 2014, 5:07 AM EDT

    Alex Gordon

    Two homers for Alex Gordon, a triple play for the Rockies and another shellacking of a hapless opponent by the Oakland Athletics.

  12. An umpire touched Torii Hunter’s face and Major League Baseball is looking into it

    May 13, 2014, 11:00 AM EDT

    Torri Hunter face touch

    Hey, blue! You gotta have you hands higher on his face to do a Vulcan mind meld!

  13. And That Happened: Monday’s scores and highlights

    Cubs Celebrate

    The Cubs give Travis Wood more run support in this game than Jeff Samardzija has had in his eight starts combined this year.

    Jacoby Ellsbury

    What a fun, relaxing weekend. Not just for all of us who watched races and sipped julep. It was relaxing for Carlos Beltran too.

    Ryan Braun

    A ton of guys had multi-homer games yesterday. Ryan Braun led the pack with his three. I’m sure that won’t bother anyone.

  16. And That Happened: Sunday’s scores and highlights

    Kemp Ramirez

    Matt Kemp and Hanley Ramirez each went yard twice. And I contemplate the return of the game-winning RBI stat.

  17. Baseball’s last undefeated team fell on Sunday

    Unfortunately, there will NOT be a 162-0 team this season.

  18. Lou Whitaker, nachos, tiger paw carpet and other stuff I saw in Lakeland

    Lou Whitaker

    LAKELAND, FLORIDA — After clubhouses close I usually wander around and take pictures of people without asking. Then I eat ballpark food. It’s a totally healthy way to live life. Here’s some of the random things I saw while I was waiting for the game to start. Hey, it’s should-be-Hall-of-Famer Lou Whitaker! Where are you…

  19. Torii Hunter: “we’re brainwashed to want to win”

    Feb 28, 2014, 9:54 AM EDT

    Torii Hunter

    LAKELAND, FLORIDA — I made it into the Tigers’ clubhouse right as it opened this morning. It’s like most of the other spring training clubhouses. A bit more cramped than some because Joker Marchant is a bit older, but it’s the same scene you always see. At least physically. In terms of vibe it felt…

  20. Ian Kinsler wants to steal more bases. He might.

    Jan 3, 2014, 10:59 AM EDT

    Ian Kinsler

    There’s a story in the Detroit Free Press about Ian Kinsler‘s dissatisfaction with his stolen base totals from last year. He swiped only 15 bases and was caught 11 times. The former total was his lowest since his rookie season, the latter total was his highest ever. He discusses the reasons for why this was…

    Major League Baseball is unveiling the 2013 Silver Slugger Award winners Wednesday evening (6:00 p.m. ET) in an hour-long special on MLB Network. The Silver Slugger Award is given annually to the top offensive player at each position in each league, as determined by MLB’s coaches and managers. We’ll post the recipients here as they…

  22. Tigers will be hard-pressed to make big signing this winter

    Nov 3, 2013, 7:10 PM EDT

    ALCS - Boston Red Sox v Detroit Tigers - Game Five

    The Tigers have made a habit of big splashes in the offseasons. Three years ago, it was Victor Martinez. Then Prince Fielder. Last winter, the Tigers signed both Anibal Sanchez and Torii Hunter. Those deals have helped them reach the postseason each year, but the ultimate prize has remained out of reach. As the Tigers…

  23. The Tigers storm back to take the lead in the 6th inning of Game 6

    Oct 19, 2013, 10:35 PM EDT

    ALCS - Boston Red Sox v Detroit Tigers - Game Four

    Red Sox starter Clay Buchholz didn’t have enough gas to get through the sixth inning of Game 6. After shutting the Tigers out through five, he showed diminished velocity and command, as he walked lead-off batter Torii Hunter on consecutive 88 MPH fastballs. He then surrendered a single to Miguel Cabrera through the hole between…

  24. Xander Bogaerts sparks a two-out rally in the fifth as Red Sox take the lead in Game 6

    Oct 19, 2013, 10:08 PM EDT

    Xander Bogaerts

    Red Sox third baseman Xander Bogaerts doubled high off the Green Monster in left-center against Max Scherzer with two outs in the fifth inning. It seemed innocent enough, despite an impressive piece of hitting from the 20-year-old. Jacoby Ellsbury, however, quickly followed up with a well-struck line drive to right field. Torii Hunter came up…

  25. Leyland: Seeing Miguel Cabrera play hurt “kind of breaks your heart”

    Oct 19, 2013, 7:30 PM EDT

    Miguel Cabrera Getty

    Tigers third baseman Miguel Cabrera played with a sore groin throughout most of the second half of the season, limiting his ability to defend his Triple Crown. The soreness has continued to bother him throughout the post-season both at the plate and defensively at third base. Opposing teams have considered attacking him with bunts, but…
