    Tigers’ slugger Miguel Cabrera picked a big moment for his first extra-base hit of the ALDS. Cabrera launched a two-run homer off A’s rookie right-hander Sonny Gray in the top of the fourth inning to give the Tigers a 2-0 lead in this decisive Game 5. It followed a one-out single by Torii Hunter and…

  5. Sonny Gray debunks need for playoff experience with stellar outing

    Oct 6, 2013, 12:42 AM EDT

    ALDS Tigers Athletics Baseball

    The ALDS Game 2 narrative between the Tigers and Athletics involved the experienced ace in Justin Verlander and the rookie in Sonny Gray. Verlander, with over 70 post-season innings under his belt, would be calm, cool, and collected with all the TV cameras pointed in his direction. Gray, who spent most of the year with…

    Oct 6, 2013, 12:40 AM EDT

    Division Series - Detroit Tigers v Oakland Athletics - Game Two

    The Tigers and Athletics played what could very well end up being the best game of the entire post-season tonight as starters Justin Verlander and Sonny Gray took the hill in opposition. The two right-handers traded zeroes through seven innings, each allowing just four hits, each walking two or fewer, each striking out at least…

  8. 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…

    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.

  11. 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,…

  12. 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…

  13. 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…

  14. 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…

  15. Max Scherzer successful in fifth attempt to join the 20-win club

    Sep 20, 2013, 11:50 PM EDT

    Max Scherzer

    Tigers starter Max Scherzer, at long last, has joined the 20-win club. In his fifth attempt at the feat, the right-hander held the White Sox to three runs on six hits and a walk in six innings of work. Scherzer only struck out three, but it was besides the point as the Tigers supplied him…

  16. Torii Hunter is going to take a detour on the Tigers’ offday Thursday

    Sep 10, 2013, 2:02 PM EDT

    Detroit Tigers v Cleveland Indians

    The Tigers finish up their series in Chicago on Wednesday night and play at home against the Royals on Friday night. For Torii Hunter, there will be some extra travel in between. He’s going to Jonesboro, Arkansas that night to see his son Monshadrik — nicknamed “Money” — play football for Arkansas State. From the Freep:…

  17. The Teflon Torii Hunter

    Aug 30, 2013, 9:15 AM EDT

    Detroit Tigers v Cleveland Indians

    I was reading Joel Sherman’s column today at the Post and I came across this bit: Torii Hunter has only enhanced his reputation as a clubhouse gem and clutch player this year — his three-run, walk-off homer yesterday carried Detroit over Oakland. Sherman mentions Hunter in furtherance of his months-old argument that the Yankees should have…

  18. And That Happened: Thursday’s scores and highlights

    Aug 30, 2013, 6:46 AM EDT

    Oakland Athletics v Detroit Tigers

    Tigers 7, Athletics 6: Torii Hunter walks off the Tigers who came back from a 6-1 deficit. A 6-3 deficit in the ninth. All while losing Miguel Cabrera mid-game. Now, starting pitching, please stop requiring Tigers bats to bail you out all the time. Orioles 3, Red Sox 2: Baltimore avoids the sweep and pulls…

  19. 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…

  20. Shane Victorino had a whale of a night

    Aug 28, 2013, 8:28 AM EDT

    Shane Victorino

    Mentioned it in the recaps but it deserves mention again: Shane Victorino went 3 for 3 with two home runs and seven RBI against the Orioles last night. That brings his season line up to .292/.346/.446 with 11 homers, 48 driven in while adding 17 stolen bases against only three times caught. And that’s before talking about…

  21. Max Scherzer outduels Matt Harvey in 3-0 game

    Aug 24, 2013, 7:41 PM EDT

    Max Scherzer

    It was the best pitching matchup of the season that a big chunk of the U.S. was unable to watch. Max Scherzer struck out 11 over six innings and combined with three relievers on a shutout as the Tigers beat the Mets 3-0 on Saturday. Matt Harvey took the loss after giving up two runs…

  22. Daisuke Matsuzaka roughed up by Tigers in Mets debut

    Aug 23, 2013, 9:30 PM EDT

    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…

  23. Report: Torii Hunter and Albert Pujols nearly came to blows last summer

    Aug 23, 2013, 8:55 PM EDT

    hunter getty

    It seems that any Angels-related news that doesn’t involve Mike Trout is bad news, these days. We learned earlier that general manager Jerry DiPoto and manager Mike Scioscia will not be able to coexist in the Angels organization after the season. Now, via Scott Miller of CBS Sports, it appears that outfielder Torii Hunter had…

    Aug 15, 2013, 11:02 AM EDT

    Prince Fielder

    Prince Fielder is having an off year. The other day teammate Torii Hunter came to his defense in a radio interview saying: “A lot of people don’t know what’s going on in his life … He’s out there every day, won’t come out of the lineup, no matter what’s going on off the field or…

  25. Torii Hunter: You don’t know what’s really going on with Prince Fielder

    Aug 13, 2013, 6:06 PM EDT

    Prince Fielder

    Torii Hunter thinks everyone needs to back off Prince Fielder, even though the first baseman isn’t putting up his usual numbers this year. Speaking on the “Ryan and Rico” show on Detroit’s 105.1 FM on Tuesday, Hunter indicated that Fielder is dealing with issues off the field. MLive.com’s James Schmehl posted a link to the…
