    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…

    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…

    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 Tigers pulled within one run of the Red Sox in the bottom of the seventh inning, but they squandered a chance at a bigger rally.

    The Tigers still have some work to do, but they are on the board against the Red Sox in Game 5 of the ALCS. The suddenly-hot Austin Jackson led off the bottom of the fifth inning with a single and was bunted over to second base by Jose Iglesias. The bunt required an excellent play…

    The American League Championship Series is 2-2. Tigers starter Doug Fister delivered six innings of one-run ball and the Detroit offense broke out in a major way in Wednesday night’s 7-3 ALCS Game 4 victory over the visiting Red Sox at Comerica Park.

    Jake Peavy‘s fourth career postseason outing is off to a poor start in Detroit. A really, really poor start. Peavy made it through the first inning unscathed, but he allowed a single to Victor Martinez to open the bottom of the second and then issued a pair of walks to load the bases. Omar Infante…

    ALCS - Detroit Tigers v Boston Red Sox - Game Two

    It’s not going to be the joyous plane ride home the Tigers were looking forward to, but achieving a split in Fenway, with Justin Verlander about to pitch in Game 3, is a great place for Jim Leyland’s team to be with up to five games remaining in the ALCS. There’s something to be said…

    ALCS - Detroit Tigers v Boston Red Sox - Game Two

    The narrative of the ALCS through nine innings of Game 1 and seven innings of Game 2 was all about the Tigers’ pitching dominance and the Red Sox offensive futility.
