Detroit Tigers: Lefty duo of Matthew Boyd and Francisco Liriano has been impressive

The Detroit Tigers are off to a pretty decent start so far in 2018. Matthew Boyd and Francisco Liriano have been part of the reason why. Going into the 2018 season, little was expected of the Detroit Tigers. However, they are off to a pretty good start and currently find themselves in third place in […] Detroit Tigers: Lefty duo of Matthew Boyd and Francisco Liriano has been impressive - Call to the Pen - Call to the Pen - A Major League Baseball Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Big homers help Royals beat Tigers, 8-5

Abraham Almonte and Mike Moustakas come through in the clutch. It was a back-and-forth, wild affair on Sunday afternoon, but the Royals used two big home runs to beat the Tigers, 8-5, and salvage a split in the four-game series. The Tigers jumped to a 2-0 lead on Erik Skoglund, and Francisco Liriano held the Royals scoreless through the first five innings. Then came the sixth inning - the Sonic Slam inning. Whit Merrifield cranked a line-drive homer to put Kansas City on the board and make it 2-1. Then Cheslor Cuthberg doubled, Jorge Soler walked, and Paulo Orlando walked, and the bases...

Royals 8, Tigers 5: Bad, bad bullpen

The Tigers’ bullpen combined to cough up five runs in a disappointing loss. Francisco Liriano took a no-hitter into the sixth inning in his start against the Kansas City Royals on Sunday. Six batters later, Liriano was done for the day and Detroit’s 2-0 lead had become a 5-2 deficit. While the Tigers would tie the score in the bottom of the inning, Kansas City added three more runs off of Detroit’s relievers to win an 8-5 contest at Comerica Park. Liriano was charged with three runs, but only one — a Whit Merrifield solo home run — came when he was on the mound. Liriano departed...

Game 19: Royals at Tigers

TODAY’S MATCHUP: Royals at Tigers. Erik Skoglund vs. Francisco Liriano. REASON TO SULK: The Royals are 4-16. REASON TO NOT SULK: Today is probably going to be Blaine Boyer’s last day in a Royals uniform! A lot should change in the time between the end of today’s game and the start of Tuesday’s series against Milwaukee. Salvador Perez and Alex Gordon should return to the big-league club following their rehab assignments, and at some point this week, Clay Buchholz will probably be called up to the big-league squad before Saturday’s double-header. The corresponding moves? Both Paulo...

Game 20 Preview: Royals at Tigers

Liriano and the Tigers could clinch a 6-1 homestand with a win on Sunday. With all due respect to Michael Fulmer, Francisco Liriano has been the Tigers’ best starter this season. He currently owns a 2.55 ERA, and has yet to allow more than two runs in any of his three starts. The Tigers have won two of those games, and ran into the buzzsaw that is Corey Kluber in the third. There are some warning signs to be found, though. Liriano is currently benefitting from a .217 batting average on balls in play, an unsustainably low mark. He is also stranding 87.2 percent of baserunners, well above...

Liriano’s fast start is a little misleading

Liriano’s fast start is a little misleading

Liriano has been fortunate through his first two outings with Detroit. Few fans were excited to see the Detroit Tigers pick up Francisco Liriano during the offseason, even if expectations were limited. Though the contract was a bargain and the team is likely going nowhere, Liriano posted a combined 5.05 ERA over the past two seasons and represented a threat to the starting time of younger pitchers such as Daniel Norris. In his first two starts with the Tigers, though, Liriano has been on a mission to prove his worth. The southpaw has conceded just three earned runs in over 12 innings...

Game 14 Preview: Yankees at Tigers

Liriano has arguably been the Tigers’ best starter so far in 2018. If you had told me back in November that the Tigers would sign Francisco Liriano to a one-year, $4 million contract, I would have been pretty excited. Sure, Liriano hasn’t been great over the past couple years, but he’s not terribly old at 34, and was just one year removed from striking out a batter per inning. If you had told me that he would be the Tigers’ best starter through the first couple weeks of the season, I would not have been all that surprised. For one, it’s a small sample of games to work with —...

Indians 2, Tigers 0: Kluber’d

The Tigers were no match for the reigning AL Cy Young winner. In another sub-40-degree game for the Detroit Tigers, Corey Kluber made their offense look like a junior varsity team. The Tigers played in their second-straight shutout, but this time were on the losing end of it as the Cleveland Indians beat them 2-0. Francisco Liriano made his second start of the season and was strong again, but had no margin for error going up against the reigning AL Cy Young award winner. There’s really not much to say about this one. Kluber rolled through the Tigers’ lineup, striking out 13 batters en...
