Toledo Mud Hens 7, Indianapolis Indians 3 (box) The Hens offense blew up Indy pitching on Sunday to take the series 4-2. And once again, it was Christin Stewart and Aderlin Rodriguez in the thick of things. Rodriguez has been a beast for the Hens all season, but Stewart has been red hot as well.
Ichiro Suzuki once mentioned his favourite English expression involved the description of how hot day games in Kansas City are. (There’s some bleeped NSFW language in that clip.) Well, today in KC was one of those days, and the Tigers certainly felt the heat as they got defeated 6-1, and thus swept by the Royals
Well folks, the Detroit Tigers came into the weekend roaring on a seven-game winning streak but have been reduced to a soft meow over the past two games in Kansas City. Both losses were close ones, with Friday’s night’s matchup ending with a 5-3 score while Saturday night’s tangle saw the Tigers blow a 6-0
The Tigers built a 6-0 lead only to blow it on Friday night in Kansas City. A pair of three-run shots powered the Royals to a 9-8 victory, and a chance at a series sweep on Sunday. Early on, the Tigers looked like they might run away with this one. The Royals didn’t get a
It has been a lot of fun being a Detroit Tigers fan in recent days, especially during the team’s seven-game winning streak coming out of the All-Star break gates. Unfortunately, all good things come to an end, and the aphorism proved true once again on Friday night when the Kansas City Royals handed the Motor
The 53-109 Detroit Tigers were abysmal in 1996, no question about it. This was Randy Smith’s first year at the helm as General Manager, with a new skipper in Buddy Bell, and also the beginning of the post-Lou Whitaker era.
The Tigers were probably due for a game like this. The squander returned with a bit of a vengeance, and one mistake from Wily Peralta put the Royals on top for good as they took the first game of the three game set 5-3. Wily Peralta and lefty Kris Bubic were both pretty good early
It’s safe to say that going into this season both Tigers and Royals fans alike thought the mid-season standings would look a little different than they do today. With the Tigers heading into a weekend series against the Royals, Detroit is fresh off a seven-game winning streak, while the Royals are 4-6 over their last
On the July 20th broadcast, Detroit Tigers General Manager Al Avila said a quote that made Tigers fans happy. “Right now, we have no pressure at all to make any trades,” Avila said. “We don’t have the type of high-salary, aging player that we need to trade to rebuild, per se. We’re on the upswing.…
The Detroit Tigers have agreed to terms with third overall selection Jackson Jobe and 39th overall pick Izaac Pacheco on bonuses that will make both millionaires, according to Jim Callis and the team. Jobe, a high school pitching wonder signed for $6.9 million; slightly under the $7.2 million slot. Meanwhile, Pacheco would sign over slot:…
It’s that time of year, where every early move in a game, every dugout hug, every management mention of a player’s name has fans wondering if they’re about to see a beloved player get moved to a different team. This season is no different, of course, as tight divisional races have some teams on the
After much debate as to whether the Cleveland Baseball Team would select a badass historical moniker (the Spiders was right there you guys), or something new, they made the official announcement of their re-brand on Friday morning with an admittedly pretty great video. Tom Hanks tells us of the spirit and strength of the city
Toledo Mud Hens 7, Indianapolis Indians 2 (box) The Tigers are running very thin on starting pitching depth with the loss of Spencer Turnbull to UCL surgery. Hens starter Drew Hutchison is making a pretty good case to be the next man up. Hutchison didn’t get much run support, and he didn’t need it, allowing
When the Detroit Tigers signed infielder Colt Keith in the fifth round of the 2020 MLB Draft, it was viewed as something of a coup. MLB Pipeline ranked Keith as the 87th player in the draft class, while Prospects Live had him 80th, and Baseball America ran him all the way up to 57. So…
The Tigers’ current seven-game win streak is the longest for the team since an eight-game run dating back to August of 2016. To put it in perspective, that was 59 months ago. The Detroit Tigers have put together a winning recipe with three essential ingredients: pitching, power, and the ability to beat the teams they should.
The Detroit Tigers are playing their best baseball of the season, and outfielder Robbie Grossman has been a big reason why. Grossman has homered three times his last seven games, and his 1.040 OPS in July is among the best in baseball.
I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: Phil Coke is the ultimate Detroit Tigers hype-man. The bullpen phone rings and the call is in. The ginger reliever hurries to the mound, attempting what appears oddly similar to a tryout for the 100-meter dash.
The Tigers were looking for a perfect 7-0 homestand on Thursday afternoon, in the finale of a four-game series against the Rangers. They got it, and the four-game sweep of Texas, with a 7-5 getaway-day victory, remaining the only undefeated post-All-Star Break team in baseball. Tyler Alexander got the start for Detroit, being moved semi-permanently
Baseball data has become more refined as the years go on. It isn’t just batting averages or wins for a pitcher, there is wRC+, FIP, WAR, the list goes on and on. For any baseball fan or any Detroit Tigers fan, depending on how you watch the game, they could mean something or nothing at…
