Detroit Tigers' Brad Ausmus explains decision to remove Rick Porcello after striking out side in 7th

Its certainly fair to question why Tigers manager Brad Ausmus lifted Rick Porcello when he did, given how dominate Porcello looked after striking out the side in the seventh inning. -- RELATED: Austin Jackson's mental blunder allows key run to score, proves costly in Detroit Tigers' 2-1 loss (video) ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Let's get one thing straight: Detroit didn't lose Sunday because Tigers manager Brad Ausmus pulled Rick Porcello after seven innings. That's a scapegoat. The Tigers dropped a third straight Sunday because their offense managed just three hits and...

Angels 2, Tigers 1: Missing offense, defensive lapse gives Angels the season series.

Another solid outing by Rick Porcello was wasted as the Tigers' offense again failed to show up, and a defensive lapse handed the Angels a 2- 1 victory, and the season series, 4 games to 3. The Tigers' offense remained in hibernation on Sunday, managing just three hits, giving them seven hits total for their last two games, and a defensive lapse handed the Angels just enough to spoil another fine outing by Rick Porcello. The victory gives the Angels a 4- 3 edge in the season series, and that could have implications in the post season, should the two teams finish the season winning their...

Seventh-inning stretch: Tigers 1, Angels 1

Rick Porcello has allowed just one run so far today. And hes probably still trying to figure out how it happened. ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Rick Porcello has allowed just one run so far today. And he's probably still trying to figure out how it happened. Porcello has induced nine groundouts and has allowed five hits in six innings as the Tigers and Angels take a 1-1 tie into the seventh inning at Angel Stadium. The Angels' lone run came in the fifth inning when Erick Aybar scored from second after he advanced to third on Porcello's wild pick-off throw and scored...

Column: Size of All-Star rosters, performances of others means Rick Porcello not truly 'snubbed'

Column: Size of All-Star rosters, performances of others means Rick Porcello not truly 'snubbed'

An argument could be made that Porcello isnt even the most deserving Tigers pitcher to be left off the AL roster. Garrett Richards of the Los Angeles Angels is certainly more deserving. KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- "Snub" is a strong word. It's also the wrong word when it comes to describing what happened to Detroit Tigers right-hander Rick Porcello regarding the American League All-Star team. All-Star rosters have grown large. Plenty of players are represented. In addition to that, there are others who are at least as worthy as Porcello who are not on the team. In fact,...

Tigers 5, Royals 1: Porcello robs the Royals of runs, Martinez and Avila homer in the ninth

Martinez and Alex Avila delivered with a solo shot and a two-run homer respectively to give the Tigers a late-game comfortable lead. An eight-inning nailbiter turned into four runs of breathing room as J.D. Martinez and Alex Avila both homered in the ninth to give the Tigers a 5-1 victory, handing them the series over the Royals and a five-game winning streak.

Rick Porcello finishes third in AL Final Vote

Rick Porcello misses out on his first All-Star Game appearance with a third-place finish in the AL Final Vote. White Sox left-hander Chris Sale wins the final spot on the AL roster. The Detroit Tigers' effort to get out the vote for a Rick Porcello All-Star Game appearance has fallen short. Porcello finished third overall in the AL Final Vote, losing the last roster spot to White Sox left-hander Chris Sale. Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo won the NL Final Vote, making it an all-Chicago sweep for the final two spots in Tuesday's All-Star Game. A Windy City sweep! @ARizzo44 (8.8 million...
