Tigers 7, White Sox 1: Justin Verlander cruises to victory

Tigers 7, White Sox 1: Justin Verlander cruises to victory

Justin Verlander pitched out of early trouble against the White Sox, ultimately settling in to toss one of his best outings of 2014. The Detroit Tigers rode a five run fourth inning and seven strong frames from Justin Verlander to beat the Chicago White Sox 7-1. The win gives the Tigers five wins in their last six games, pulling them within 1/2 game of the first place Kansas City Royals in the AL Central. In the wild card race, Detroit is currently up 1/2 game over the Seattle Mariners. Verlander (W, 12-11) survived a rocky start, but ended up twirling quite possibly his best outing of the...

Shawn Kelley's glove slam is better than Phil Coke's

Shawn Kelley's glove slam is better than Phil Coke's

Alex Avila's walk-off single made Shawn Kelley do a GIF-tastic glove slam. What's worse than giving up a walk-off hit? Giving up a walk-off hit to the guy who came into the game hitting .219 with a slugging average of .369. You thought Phil Coke's 2012 glove slam was awesome? Shawn Kelley's angry/defeated glove slam after Alex Avila's game-winning RBI on Thursday afternoon might be even more awesome, because it's seasoned with Yankee frustration and defeat. You be the judge: Poll Who threw it better? Phil Coke Shawn Kelley   33 votes |...

Tigers 3, Yankees 2: Kyle Lobstein solid in first MLB start as Tigers take series in walk-off fashion

Tigers 3, Yankees 2: Kyle Lobstein solid in first MLB start as Tigers take series in walk-off fashion

Kyle Lobstein gave the Tigers six solid innings, giving up just four hits on two runs. The bullpen shut down the Yankees and the Tigers offense rallied in the ninth as Alex Avila hit a clutch walk-off RBI single with two outs.

Supported by a strong bullpen led by lefty Blaine Hardy, the Tigers won 3-2 on a crushed walk-off RBI single by Alex Avila with two outs. Lobstein retired...

Joe Nathan sees (and reads) your angry tweets

Watch Joe Nathan read some of the most critical tweets about himself. This is easily one of the best videos you'll see this week. At the prompting of Jeff Riger, Joe Nathan reads some of the most critical tweets aimed at him on Twitter during the past few weeks. We'll give him this much: I doubt Jose Valverde would have done anything like this.

Game 2014.132: Yankees at Tigers

Drew Smyly has allowed fewer runs in 5 starts with the Tampa Bay Rays than David Price allowed last night in the 3rd inning. In no way would I go back and unwind that deal. I loved it then and I love it now. But baseball is a funny game, and there are a lot […]

Tigers, fans extend touching farewell to Derek Jeter

The Tigers and fans offered the Yankees shortstop a fitting pre-game ceremony on his way to retiring from 20 years of playing the game of baseball. DETROIT — One last time, one last series for fans in Michigan to bid farewell to the Michigan-native who was drafted by the New York Yankees in 1992. The Yankees generally don't receive a warm reception when they come to Detroit. Any series between the Yankees and the Tigers carries a playoff-like feel with it, and Derek Jeter isn't one who typically receives a glowing welcome when he steps to the plate. For one series though, that has been...

Yankees 8, Tigers 4: David Price gives up eight runs in second-shortest start of career

David Price allows eight runs in the third inning without retiring a batter. He took the loss in what was a tie for the most runs he's given up in his major league career. DETROIT — Every pitcher has an off-night, but for David Price, it was about as bad as they come. The left-hander gave up every run the Yankees would get in one inning, and despite papercut runs scored by the Tigers and a solid performance by the Tigers bullpen, the Tigers lost 8-4 and now sit 2 1/2 games behind the Royals in the AL Central. "It was just an off-night," Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said. "He left some...

Anibal Sanchez visits Dr. James Andrews, Tigers remain "hopeful" for return

The Tigers have a treatment plan in place and aren't ruling out a return in the season, but they aren't discussing what that timetable is. Justin Verlander starts on Friday in Chicago and Joakim Soria is making progress. DETROIT —  The Tigers are cautiously optimistic Anibal Sanchez could return before the season ends, but for now the Tigers are playing a waiting game while Sanchez undergoes treatment. Sanchez visited Dr. James Andrews on Wednesday for further diagnosis, who confirmed initial results with a follow-up ultrasound that Sanchez has a strained right pectoral muscle. "He saw...

Tigers trade rumors: Deal for Astros closer Chad Qualls appears dead

A trade for Astros' closer Chad Qualls looks to be off the table with the passing of the 48 hour trade deadline. Turns out talk of a Chad Qualls being traded to the Detroit Tigers was just that - talk. The Tigers entered a claim on Qualls Monday after the Houston Astros had placed their 36-year-old closer on revocable waivers. As of late this afternoon, a trade between the teams appears to be dead. Neither organization has made an announcement involving Qualls. #Tigers and #Astros had 1:30 pm ET deadline to get a Chad Qualls deal done, and at this point (2:45 ET), nothing has been...

If the San Antonio Spurs played baseball, they would win most games 5-2. Ricky P was phenomenal, again, scattering 9 hits over […]
