Astros 6, Tigers 2: A throwaway game

Tigers drop 2nd game of the series, lose 3rd in a row The Detroit Tigers were flummoxed by wicked pitching from Houston Astros starter Lance McCullers, Jr. and beaten by their own defense, as they dropped the second game of the series in Houston, 6-2. With McCullers on the mound, the Tigers saw their scoreless inning streak reach 22 innings as the young righty held them to just one hit over five innings with five strikeouts. Jordan Zimmermann got the start for the Tigers and managed to limit the damage this time out, though he still continues to suffer from the hard-contact dragon and a...

With 2 more errors, Nicholas Castellanos' defensive struggles persist

With 2 more errors, Nicholas Castellanos' defensive struggles persist

He works his butt off, said Tigers manager Brad Ausmus. Unfortunately tonight, a couple of errors cost us there. HOUSTON -- Almost every afternoon, several hours before game time, Detroit Tigers third baseman Nicholas Castellanos can be found on the infield dirt, a bucket of balls beside him. He's taking grounders from Tigers defensive coordinator Matt Martin and trying to shake his reputation as a shaky defender. The 2017 season began with optimism, but it has so far gone much like the rest. Castellanos has nine errors, tied for second-most in baseball,...

Could Anthony Gose pitch in Detroit this year? After sizzling debut, don't count him out

Could Anthony Gose pitch in Detroit this year? After sizzling debut, don't count him out

Goses developmental path will be accelerated because hes 26 years old, so he wouldnt necessarily have to make every stop on the organizational ladder before reaching the big leagues. HOUSTON -- When Anthony Gose made his professional debut as a pitcher Monday night in Lakeland, Fla., it offered the public a glimpse of what the Detroit Tigers have been watching for the last seven weeks in extended spring training. Gose is the real deal. That's not to say fans should expect to see him in the Tigers bullpen anytime soon. But they shouldn't rule it out, either. The...

Even in a loss, Michael Fulmer keeps delivering consistency for Tigers

Even in a loss, Michael Fulmer keeps delivering consistency for Tigers

He has picked up in 2017 right where he left 2016 off. Hes been outstanding. We couldnt ask for more from him, manager Brad Ausmus said. HOUSTON -- The stat is simple: Six innings or more, three earned runs or fewer.  A Quality Start. Critics say that a 4.50 ERA is mediocrity, not quality, but they can't deny that such an outing typically gives many teams -- and especially the Detroit Tigers' slugging offense -- a real shot at winning. Michael Fulmer, who has delivered nine consecutive Quality Starts to start the 2017 season, did it again on Monday. He allowed...

Ice-cold Tigers manage just 1 hit as Astros throw shutout in opener

The loss squandered another outstanding performance by Michael Fulmer, who has gone at least seven innings in five of his last starts. HOUSTON -- To blame jet lag for the Detroit Tigers' sluggish offensive performance wouldn't be fair to Houston Astros starter Brad Peacock, who pitched brilliantly on a spot start. But there's no denying the ugly details: The Tigers, who arrived at their hotel about 5 a.m. on Monday, looked lost at the plate. Peacock and three Astros relievers combined to shut out the Tigers on one hit, winning the series opener 1-0 on Monday...
