Detroit Tigers Links did not see that sweep coming

After an iffy weekend in Chicago, the Tigers are riding high. So...that went well. I have to be honest, after back-to-back walk-offs against the White Sox I thought a demoralized Tigers team would get steam rolled by Red Sox and continue their march toward an inevitable .500 season. But the team rallied for a sweep lead by clutch hitting by Miguel Cabrera and... Tyler Collins’ defense? That new Tigers center fielder can do a few things. Just ask the Red Sox, who might have lost a game Wednesday when Tyler Collins made a play that will find itself onto the team’s 2016 Best Of The Tigers...

Brad Ziegler on Miguel Cabrera home run: ‘It wasn’t a horrible pitch, it just wasn’t a great one either’

With Miguel Cabrera stepping to the plate in the ninth inning with two outs and the game tied at three, the Red Sox were feeling pretty good. They had just rallied from a 3-1 deficit to tie the game at three in the bottom half of the eighth with their No. 3-5 hitters due up […]

After big night in Chicago, Miguel Cabrera banishes July slump

After big night in Chicago, Miguel Cabrera banishes July slump

In the Tigers last four games, hes 9-for-15 (.600). Before that, Cabrera had been only 9-for-44 (.205) with one extra base hit and no homers in the month of July. CHICAGO -- When Miguel Cabrera smacked a single up the middle to score two runs, Detroit Tigers starter Michael Fulmer wasn't surprised. "You expect it from him," Fulmer said. "He's the greatest hitter on the planet." For much of July, Cabrera had not been hitting like the greatest on the planet. But that slump, if you want to call it that, was resoundingly erased in the Tigers' 7-5 win over the...

Tigers 7, White Sox 5: Miguel Cabrera notches four hits, 1500th career RBI in win

Cabrera shines, Fulmer struggles as the Tigers grind out the victory. Michael Fulmer was not his sharpest on Friday night, struggling with his command and lasting only five innings. Thankfully, Miguel Cabrera had himself a night and the offense finally showed some life, propelling the Detroit Tigers to a 7-5 victory over the Chicago White Sox to take a 2-0 series lead. The Tigers had a chance to get on the board right away against Jacob Turner. The former Detroit No. 1 prospect loaded the bases with two outs, but got Justin Upton to strike out swinging. The White Sox struck in the bottom...

Miguel Cabrera breaks slump, reaches 1,500 RBIs as Tigers beat White Sox

The Tigers (51-46) gained a game in the Central Division and Wild Card races. CHICAGO -- It's safe to say Miguel Cabrera's slump is officially over. The Detroit Tigers first baseman reached base in all five of his plate appearances and hit a go-ahead, two-run single to record his 1,500th career RBI in a 7-5 victory over the Chicago White Sox on Friday at U.S. Cellular Field. Tigers starter Michael Fulmer eluded a jam in the first inning, but couldn't escape trouble in the fifth, when the White Sox scored four runs to take the lead. Detroit answered back in...

Tigers' Miguel Cabrera reaches RBI milestone with go-ahead single in Chicago

Cabrera could overtake Hall-of-Famers Tris Speak (1,531), Joe DiMaggio (1,537) and Willie Stargell (1,540) this season. In 2017, Cabrera could pass Tigers great Al Kaline (1,582). CHICAGO -- Detroit Tigers first baseman Miguel Cabrera drove in his 1,500th run Friday night at U.S. Cellular Field. The two-run single up the middle in the seventh inning came with the bases loaded and broke a 5-5 tie. Cabrera is the 56th player in major-league history to reach the 1,500 RBI milestone.

Tigers 2, White Sox 1 (F/7): Home runs, weather help Mike Pelfrey clinch his 3rd win

Tonight’s MVP = Mother Nature Well, that was anticlimactic. After a rain delay spanning nearly three hours, the Detroit Tigers were awarded (?) a 2-1 victory in 6 1/2 innings over the Chicago White Sox. Mike Pelfrey recorded his third win of the season, and second in three starts over the White Sox. The Tigers threatened to score a couple times in the early innings, but as has been the case far too often recently, they came up empty. Nick Castellanos struck out with two runners on base to end the first inning, then fanned again with the bases loaded in the third. After Miguel Cabrera...

Brad Ausmus hoping for spillover from slumping Miguel Cabrera, Victor Martinez

Brad Ausmus hoping for spillover from slumping Miguel Cabrera, Victor Martinez

Cabrera and Martinez are both cool at the plate during the month of July. DETROIT -- It's no secret Miguel Cabrera and Victor Martinez have had a rough go of it in July, but Detroit Tigers manager Brad Ausmus is hoping for some spillover from Tuesday night. Both were back in the lineup Wednesday for Detroit's series finale against the Minnesota Twins (1:10 p.m., FSD) after Ausmus considered giving one of his slumping power hitters the day off. "It crossed my mind during the the course of the game yesterday, maybe to give one of them a day -- but they both had...

Series Preview: Twins at Tigers

They're good. After losing the opening second half series to the Indians, the Twins will go to Detroit for a 3 game series. Here's what Detroit's been up to: The Tigers just got done winning a series against the Royals, and their record sits at 48-44. JD Martinez is currently on the 15-day DL so their best active hitter by OPS is Miguel Cabrera (~.876). Their lineup consists of six different guys with OPS > .800, which is pretty remarkable (the Twins have about three of those). On the pitching side of things, no starter is really setting the world on fire, except for Michael Fulmer (9-2,...

Tyler Collins sparks big inning to help Justin Verlander, Tigers beat Royals

Collins, just recalled from Triple-A Toledo to replace Justin Upton, led off the seventh with a solo shot to right. DETROIT -- Tyler Collins and Ian Kinsler hit solo home runs, but it was Victor Martinez's unlikely two-RBI infield single with the bases loaded in the seventh inning that broke up the game in the Tigers' 4-2 win over the Kansas City Royals Friday night at Comerica Park. Collins, just recalled from Triple-A Toledo to replace Justin Upton, led off the seventh with a solo shot to right. The Tigers then loaded the bases for Miguel Cabrera, who was...

Miguel Cabrera gave up All-Star Game at-bat to help Eric Hosmer's MVP bid

Miguel Cabrera gave up All-Star Game at-bat to help Eric Hosmer's MVP bid

For him to do that says a lot about his character and really stands out to me. When American League All-Star manager Ned Yost turned to Miguel Cabrera and asked him to pinch-hit for Kansas City Royals first baseman Eric Hosmer in sixth inning Tuesday, the Detroit Tigers star politely declined.  "Hosmer has a chance to be the MVP; give him one more at-bat," Cabrera told Yost, according to ESPN. Hosmer grounded out and Cabrera entered in the seventh as a defensive replacement. He struck out in his only at-bat in the eighth inning. Hosmer ended up winning the MVP...
