Angels 8, Tigers 7: Offense battles but Alfredo Simon's wild pitches stand out in loss

The offense never gave up even in the ninth but it just wasn't enough because of Simon. DETROIT -- Amnesia struck Alfredo Simon as he regressed to yet another rough start.

A walk, single, three-run homer, double, and a wild pitch gave the Angels a 4-0 lead without an out having been recorded....

Alfredo Simon's aggressive approach yields career-first shutout

A combined quick pace and locating the ball in the strike zone helped Simon twirl a gem against the Rangers. DETROIT -- At 34 years and 104 days, Alfredo Simon is the second-oldest Detroit Tigers pitcher to throw his first shutout. He is paced by only Steve Sparks, who did it at the age of 35 years and 104 days. It's been an up and down season for Simon. After he started out strong, Simon had struggled with a combination of his command, velocity, and an injury. But on Thursday, Simon had "that look in his eyes" from the get-go, according to James McCann. "That's probably the best he's...

Astros 5, Tigers 1: Another poor start by Alfredo Simon sinks Detroit

And the offense was nowhere to be found. Alfredo Simon had another bad night, the Detroit Tigers offense disappeared, and the bullpen was its usual inefficient self. The end result was a 5-1 loss at the hands of the Houston Astros to start a three-game series. Simon did what Simon does best. Started out adequate enough through four innings and then fell apart in the fifth. Manager Brad Ausmus tried to squeeze something that wasn't there out of Simon in the sixth. It resulted in a leadoff triple. You don't need pitcher-batter matchups to know that Simon collapses after about four innings yet...
