Mariners 5 Tigers, 4: Sleepless in Seattle

Tigers fall to Mariners in the wee hours, hope you didn’t stay up for this. A long night ended in the Detroit Tiger’s fourth straight loss as the Seattle Mariners beat the Tigers on a walkoff hit in extra innings. Always extra innings in Seattle, and it never seems to end well. Seattle Mariners starter Ariel Miranda did his best to remind the Tigers bats of their right to remain silent. They resisted at first, with Ian Kinsler hitting a lead off home run, and Justin Upton cracking a solo shot in the second inning to briefly tie the game back up. But they were eventually handcuffed for...

Tigers 13, Rays 4: A Tale of Two Erasmos

Tigers 13, Rays 4: A Tale of Two Erasmos

Erasmo Ramirez was two totally different pitchers tonight. “Booooooooooo”- Brett Phillips, watching this game Despite leading off with a home run to Ian Kinsler (something he had done last time he faced the Tigers on April 20th) Erasmo’s early innings were worth commending. Keeping the ball in the zone, Erasmo retired the next nine Tigers he faced, and kept the game close. Close enough, in fact, that the Rays were able to quickly overcome that early deficit. A second inning rally ended after a Tim Beckham leadoff single when Mallex Smith struck out and T-Bex was thrown out stealing on...

Drew Pomeranz and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day

Drew Pomeranz and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day

This was a very bad game. Red Sox. Tigers. Baseball. It’s been a fun series. But this game was not nearly as fun as the others. This was because the Tigers took a 2-0 lead all of eight pitches into the ballgame, and they never gave it up. Up ahead is roughly 2400 words on the subject. I suggest commenting instead. Ian Kinsler started action with a lined shot to left field, and then Nicholas Castellanos homered to center-field, where his 448 foot shot had more than enough to clear the wall. Castellanos has been enjoying Fenway a lot. Then Miguel Cabrera walked, wasting a lot of Pomeranz...

Tigers 4, Angels 0: Detroit wins pitchers’ duel to even series

Or, it was a pitchers’ duel until the eighth inning. The Detroit Tigers came to the ballpark today hoping to play better against the Los Angeles Angels than previous history. They succeeded.

Victor Martinez hit into a double play, scoring Ian Kinsler. That was the game’s only run until the bottom of the eighth inning when Justin Upton crushed a ball into the bullpen for a three-run home run. Buck Farmer got off to a good start...
