Tigers 13, Twins 4: Gibson continues to struggle

Gibson provided a second straight short start for the Twins, as they drop the series. It was the Twins who got the first run today. Brian Dozier hit a double, and later scored on a Miguel Sano single. They had a chance to add more, but Robbie Grossman and Jason Castro struck out to end the threat. If Gibson could have a good day, we had a decent shot of winning. Kyle Gibson did not have a good day. The first inning went OK, as Danny Santana threw out Ian Kinsler at home for the third out. The 2nd inning started with Danny Santana dropping a fly ball hit by Justin Upton, and then Alex...

Rays fan confused Ian Kinsler, Tigers by yelling ‘I got it!’ (Video)

Very few fans have been showing up to Tampa Bay Rays games this season, but the ones who do are creating one heck of a home field advantage for their team. In their 8-7 loss to Tampa on Wednesday, the Detroit Tigers allowed two very catchable fly balls to fall between them in the outfield...Read More

Tigers 2, Red Sox 1: Ian Kinsler and Andrew Romine back Justin Verlander’s strong start

Tigers 2, Red Sox 1: Ian Kinsler and Andrew Romine back Justin Verlander’s strong start

Andrew Romine had two doubles and Ian Kinsler blasted a home run. Chris Sale outlasted Justin Verlander in terms out innings pitched, but it was the Detroit Tigers who had the last say. Detroit had nothing against Sale until the eighth when Nicholas Castellanos drove in Andrew Romine for a 2-1 final score over the Boston Red Sox, and a series win. Verlander versus Sale went about how you’d expect. Runs were at a premium and Sale was hard to hit. Verlander, though, had to deal with an umpire’s fussy strike zone and Boston hitters who were playing hard to get out. Nonetheless, the only...

Red Sox 7, Tigers 5: The bats come alive

Red Sox 7, Tigers 5: The bats come alive

Hey, so that’s what a string of runs looks like. For a while, Sunday’s game looked like it was going to be more of the same. A fine but not great outing from the starter combined with a lackluster day from the depleted lineup. Then, said lineup came alive and it all changed. At first, though, it was a seesaw sort of day between the Tigers and the Red Sox. Boston got a couple baserunners in the first, but Dustin Pedroia was picked off and they couldn’t get anything going. Rick Porcello came out for the bottom half of the inning, and after striking out Ian Kinsler to start the game he...

Red Sox 5, Tigers 6: Bullpen spoils Pablo’s heroics

Red Sox 5, Tigers 6: Bullpen spoils Pablo’s heroics

That was not so fun. Well, that was a roller coaster of emotions. The Red Sox found themselves down for most of the game, then had a quick high before getting right back down. Ugh. Steven Wright made his first start of the season on Friday, and it was a mixed bag. It didn’t get off to a good start, as he allowed the first two runners to reach base on a single and a walk. After Ian Kinsler moved over to third on a flyout to right field, he’d score on a sacrifice fly off the bat of former Red Sox Victor Martinez. Just like that, the Tigers were up 1-0. After that, things settled down for...
