Angels 2, Tigers 0: Lack of run support sinks Detroit yet again

Randy Wolf was great. The offense was not. And Bruce Rondon struggled again. In his second start for the Detroit Tigers, lefty Randy Wolf devoured the Angels through seven innings. He allowed just one run but with only an eighth-inning triple for offense, became the latest to fall victim to the curse of no run support. The Tigers took a 2-0 loss to the Angels, and a series loss at home. Wolf had allowed just three hits over 5 2/3 innings pitched and had a low pitch count. A night after Verlander put up a stellar start against the Angels, Wolf was on track to do the same. He hadn't allowed a...

Tigers' Randy Wolf brings experience and hopefully some relief to a taxed pitching staff

First impressions can mean everything. At 39 years old, Wolf got off to a good start with the Tigers. DETROIT -- Acquiring a 39-year-old minor leaguer who has spent the last year in Triple-A, only to throw him into a major league start was enough to make more than a few fans apprehensive about what the results would be. Well, it wasn't perfect, but Randy Wolf's debut for the Detroit Tigers in a 5-3 loss Saturday wasn't a disaster. In fact, Wolf's start was solid with the exception of the third inning. The difference between Wolf at this point in his life versus a much younger version of...

Rangers 5, Tigers 3: Ninth inning rally comes up short for Detroit

Overall, Randy Wolf was solid in his debut for the Tigers, but he was the latest victim of a silent Tigers offense. DETROIT -- Randy Wolf came back from a rough third inning to hold the Texas Rangers to one hit across four frames, but the Detroit Tigers offense was still missing in action. Despite a multi-hit day from Miguel Cabrera and a ninth inning home run from Ian Kinsler, the Tigers lost 5-3 to the Rangers. Wolf ate up some innings and he kept the Tigers in the game. Unfortunately the offense didn't do the same for him. He struggled in the third inning and gave up five straight...
