Padres 6, Tigers 0: Detroit finishes with just one hit, 11 strikeouts in first shutout loss of season

Padres starter Andrew Cashner struck out a career high 11 batters and issued two walks while throwing a complete game. SAN DIEGO -- The San Diego Padres have struggled offensively this season. They entered Friday's game with 20 runs in nine games. But they did plenty enough damage to beat the Detroit Tigers, who didn't do anything at all in the batters' boxes. Chase Headley had a two-run home run off Rick Porcello on Friday night and the Tigers hitters couldn't figure out starter Andrew Cashner in their 6-0 loss to the Padres. The Tigers finished with just one...

Detroit Tigers notebook: Jason Heyward launches home run over scoreboard off Rick Porcello (video)

Torii Hunter, who bent over and picked some grass as the ball sailed through the air, said he heard the ball hit a moving truck parked behind the scoreboard in right field. Your browser does not support iframes. LAKELAND, Fla. -- There is some question as to whether it was even the longest home run hit at Joker Marchant Stadium this week. But the home run Jason Heyward hit Tuesday afternoon off Detroit Tigers starter Rick Porcello was an absolute monster. How impressive was it? So impressive that outfielder Torii Hunter didn't even bother to watch it....

Better know a Tiger: Rick Porcello

If the Tigers' starting rotation is going to be as strong as it was in 2013, Rick Porcello needs to take the place of Doug Fister. Entering spring training in 2013, many pundits and prognosticators thought that Rick Porcello was as good as gone. It seemed plausible, if not likely, that the Tigers would trade one of their six starting pitchers for help in other areas, inserting Drew Smyly into the last spot in the rotation. Porcello seemed to be the odd man out on many lists, and word was that he was being shopped, or at least the club was willing to listen to offers. Apparently, Dave...
