2014 MLB All-Star Game: Ian Kinsler, Anibal Sanchez snubbed from AL roster

Kinsler and Sanchez were both deserving candidates to be part of this year's All-Star roster. The Tigers were probably due for an All-Star snub or two after seeing six players make the 2013 roster, but having two players left off the roster in 2014 is a bit of a surprise. Ian Kinsler and Anibal Sanchez both put up some impressive numbers in the first half, but were shut out of the All-Star festivities in lieu of less deserving players. There are a couple of rules in place that have made deserving All-Star selections more difficult in recent seasons. First, the roster is required to have at...

Detroit Tigers' Anibal Sanchez has rare bad outing in loss to Tampa Bay Rays

Detroit Tigers' Anibal Sanchez has rare bad outing in loss to Tampa Bay Rays

Sanchez had gone 32 consecutive starts without allowing more than four earned runs. DETROIT – Anibal Sanchez isn't the most heralded pitcher on a Detroit Tigers' staff that includes Cy Young Award winners and All-Stars, but he has been exceptionally consistent since joining the club. That's why Saturday's outing was bizarre. Sanchez pitched 4 1/3 innings of hitless ball before coming unglued, allowing three runs in the fifth and four in the sixth, losing to the Tampa Bay Rays 7-2 at Comerica Park. It was a game in which Sanchez had a slim margin of error...

Rays 7, Tigers 2: Tigers handed second loss after Sanchez's rough start

Anibal Sanchez started out strong but struggled the fifth and sixth innings and he gave up a total of seven runs while the Tigers offense was quiet for much of the evening except for two solo home runs. DETROIT — Through four innings, things were shaping up to be an all-out pitcher's duel between Tigers starting pitcher Anibal Sanchez (5-3) and Rays starter Chris Archer (5-5). A rocky fifth inning became a worse sixth for Sanchez, however, and the Tigers lost 7-2 as Sanchez matched a career high in runs allowed. Through four innings Sanchez allowed just two walks and no hits, but Tigers...

Rays 7, Tigers 2: Chris Archer goes eight strong innings while Anibal Sanchez falters

Sanchez was roughed up for seven runs in the fifth and sixth innings combined. DETROIT – Chris Archer's season record is mediocre. But he showed on Saturday why he has the second-best earned-run average in the American League since mid-May. Archer held the Detroit Tigers to six hits and two runs over 8 1/3 innings, leading the Tampa Bay Rays to a 7-2 victory at Comerica Park. The Tigers (48-36) have dropped back-to-back games for the first time since losing three in a row from June 16-18. Anibal Sanchez was just as sharp as Archer early on, holding the Rays...
