Justin Verlander has perfect game broken up by bunt

Unwritten rules in baseball are usually absurd. You should not be able to plunk someone with a fastball just because they looked at the pitcher the wrong way. God forbid someone flips a bat.  But really? Breaking up a perfect game on a bunt? Seattle Mariners' Jarrod Dyson ended Detroit ...

Tigers lose 4-run lead to drop 5th game in a row, falling to worst mark since 2015

Justin Verlander lost his perfect game in the sixth when Jarrod Dyson laid down a flawless bunt. That opened the floodgates. SEATTLE -- An awful road trip in an awful month of an increasingly dismal season may have hit a new low on Wednesday night.

What Brad Ausmus said after loss that might mark low point in Tigers' season

What Brad Ausmus said after loss that might mark low point in Tigers' season

Were playing like crap, overall, he said SEATTLE -- Two hours into Wednesday night's game, it looked like the Detroit Tigers were delivering exactly the kind of game they needed to break out of a lengthy slump. * Justin Verlander, in the midst of a perfect game, was in 2016 form. * The Tigers offense had gotten to a top pitcher, Seattle's James Paxton. * The sometimes shaky bullpen might only be needed for an inning or two, if that. Of course, everything soon unraveled, as the Tigers lost a four-run lead and fell to the Mariners 7-5. The Tigers have now lost five...

The highlight of last night’s game was this beautiful bromance. There are moments that will stand out in Tigers’ fans memories as great events, even when they have nothing to do with the game. Prince Fielder stealing a fan’s nacho. Ian Kinsler rubbing his bloody finger in the dirt. They’re fun baseball highlights that remind us the sport is meant to be enjoyed as a game, and not always to be taken so seriously. Last night, before the once-perfect game collapsed around Justin Verlander and the Tigers took what should have been a shut-out and turned it into a deeply disappointing...

How the Doug Fister trade closed the window on the Detroit Tigers

How the Doug Fister trade closed the window on the Detroit Tigers

The “butterfly effects” of that cold December trade are still being felt today In the summer of 2011, former Tigers general manager Dave Dombrowski knew he needed one more starting pitcher to complete a rotation that already included a historically dominant Justin Verlander, an emerging Max Scherzer and a very green Rick Porcello. The fourth spot in the rotation was being held down by Brad Penfrey. No. Mike Pelney. The fifth rotation spot initially belonged to Phil Coke, then rotated among “prospects” who were never going to be as good as we hoped, like Andy Oliver and Jacob...
