Tigers GM Al Avila: 'We’re confident we can make a strong push this year'

Tigers owner Mike Ilitch wants a world series championship "badly" and is "committed" to that goal in 2015. But at what cost? DETROIT -- Al Avila, incoming general manager for the Tigers, admitted Tuesday that did not know why he was handed his job a day after the July 31 trade deadline. Only that Tigers owner Mike Ilitch fully expects the team to contend -- this year. "Well, he's definitely disappointed," Avila said. "He wanted a championship badly. Even this year, he still has high hopes we can accomplish that. He hasn't given up on this year. He still wants to -- he still has a hope we...

Perez homer lifts Royals to 5-1 victory over Tigers

DETROIT — Salvador Perez homered and drove in three runs as the Kansas City Royals beat the Detroit Tigers 5-1 Tuesday night. The game was overshadowed by an afternoon announcement that Dave Dombrowski was being replaced as Detroit’s general manager by his top assistant, Al Avila. In 14 years with the Tigers, Dombrowski took one of the worst franchises in the game and took it to six postseason appearances including World Series losses in 2006 and 2012. Detroit came into the season looking for a fifth straight AL Central title, but now trail the Royals by 121/2 games. read more

Rays 11, White Sox 3: Things fall apart in sixth

Chris Sale's start ends with a breakdown as Sox suffer fifth loss in six games Chris Sale has showed a knack this year for living up to marquee matchups, as pitchers' duels with Corey Kluber and Mark Buehrle turned out to be among the most memorable games of the year. His face-off with Chris Archer tonight, though, was not one of them. Sale's night started rough (a first-inning two-run homer) and ended worse (leaving one out into a five-run sixth, and with a play that was stunning in its all-around failure), while Archer sailed through seven innings of perfunctory two-run ball. As a result,...
