Torii Hunter

  1. 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:…

  2. 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…

  3. 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…

  4. 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…

  5. 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…

  6. 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…

  7. 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…

  8. 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…

  9. Prince Fielder is going through a divorce

    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…

  10. 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…

  11. Settling the Score: Saturday’s results

    Aug 11, 2013, 8:51 AM EDT

    torii hunter getty

    The largest division lead in baseball still belongs to the Braves, who have won 14 of their last 15 games and currently boast a 14 1/2-game lead over the Nationals in the NL East standings. The second-largest division lead belongs to the Tigers. Anibal Sanchez tossed seven solid innings, Miguel Cabrera launched his 35th home…

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

    Aug 5, 2013, 5:00 AM EDT

    Comerica Park

    I went to Detroit over the weekend where I took in Saturday and Sunday’s Tigers-White Sox games. Such a wonderful time. Cool temperatures, no humidity, good company, good pitching, good food, good beer. It’s really all you could want. As I watched these games and hung around a city that, no matter what else you…

  13. Max Scherzer puts on clinic against the White Sox, improves to 16-1

    Aug 3, 2013, 11:25 PM EDT

    Max Scherzer

    Tigers starter Max Scherzer silenced White Sox hitters over seven and two-thirds innings tonight, improving to 16-1 with the 3-0 victory. The right-hander allowed three hits and three walks while striking out six, lowering his ERA to 2.85. Scherzer got two quick outs in the seventh, but was lifted for newly-acquired reliever Jose Veras after Alejandro…

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

    Aug 1, 2013, 7:05 AM EDT

    Chicago White Sox v Cleveland Indians

    Indians 6, White Sox 5: Living with a Tigers fan is kinda hard sometimes. Like, when you have the Indians-White Sox game on the TV, she wants the Indians to lose, the White Sox blow a two-run lead in the ninth and then Carlos Santana hits a walkoff homer in extras. It’s even more complicated…

  15. Max Scherzer improves to 15-1 as Tigers embarrass Phillies

    Jul 27, 2013, 10:55 PM EDT

    Max Scherzer

    Max Scherzer picked up his easiest W of the season as the Tigers rolled over the hapless Phillies 10-0 tonight at Comerica Park. With reliever Raul Valdes making a spot start in place of Cliff Lee, dealing with a stiff neck, the Tigers put up a five-spot in the first inning. Miguel Cabrera got the…

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

    Tampa Bay Rays' Price pitches against Boston Red Sox  during MLB American League Baseball game in Boston

    Rays 5, Red Sox 1: David Price tossed a one-run, five hit complete game, with a solo homer by Mike Napoli the only real blemish. He needed a mere 97 pitches. That’s what happens when you throw 72 strikes. The Sox and Rays are once again tied in the loss column. Dodgers 8, Blue Jays…

  17. The American League wins the 2013 All-Star Game 3-0

    Jul 16, 2013, 11:25 PM EDT

    84th MLB All-Star Game

    Another Midsummer Classic in the bag. Another scoresheet which looks like a train wreck, but that’s how the All-Star Game rolls. And the American League rolled to victory here at Citi Field, beating the National League 3 to 0. As with most All-Star Games it was the small moments which were the most memorable. Here…

  18. Picture of the Day: Let’s just forget about the 2002 All-Star Game

    Craig All-Star Game Scores

    While checking out the sites and sounds from Citi Field this afternoon, our own Craig Calcaterra noticed that the out-of-town scoreboard featured scores of the recent All-Star Games. A nice touch by MLB. However, one game in particular was curiously absent. It's @MLB revisionist history. The tied All-Star Game in 2002 didn't happen. pic.twitter.com/BqSq1sJOpl —…

  19. Video of the Day: Torii Hunter shares his thoughts on the Tigers-White Sox fight yesterday

    Jul 12, 2013, 1:00 PM EDT

    Detroit Tigers v Cleveland Indians

    Torii Hunter: master question-evader. Watch the eyes. And next time someone asks you a hard question, say “hot tamale.”

  20. Settling the Score: Saturday’s results

    Jul 7, 2013, 8:47 AM EDT

    fielder, cabrera getty

    The Tigers are beginning to create some distance again in the American League Central standings. Anibal Sanchez pitched efficiently in his first start back from the 15-day disabled list and Torii Hunter, Miguel Cabrera and Prince Fielder combined for a total of six RBI as Detroit topped Cleveland 9-4 on Saturday afternoon at Progressive Field.…

  21. Evan Longoria, Stephen Strasburg lead All-Star snubs

    Jul 6, 2013, 8:21 PM EDT

    Evan Longoria

    No matter how bloated the All-Star rosters get, it’s never hard to find imperfections. This year, two of the AL’s top 10 performers to date have been left off for no good reason. For some reason, manager Jim Leyland’s squad took three catchers and four second basemen, but just two from third base, which has…

  22. Max Scherzer beats Blue Jays to move to 13-0

    Jul 3, 2013, 10:51 PM EDT

    Detroit Tigers v Toronto Blue Jays

    Tigers right-hander Max Scherzer won his sixth straight start and improved to 13-0 on the season after allowing two runs in 6 1/3 innings against the Blue Jays on Wednesday. Scherzer is the first pitcher to start 13-0 since Roger Clemens opened up 14-0 for the Red Sox on his way to a Cy Young…

  24. Torii Hunter hit his 300th career home run

    Jun 16, 2013, 4:16 PM EDT

    hunter tigers getty

    Torii Hunter had 192 homers in his 11 years with the Twins, 105 home runs in his five years with the Angels and he now has three home runs in his first year with the Tigers. That makes 300 career homers, which is a somewhat exclusive club. Hunter, who turns 38 years old in July,…
