Tigers squander late lead, split doubleheader with Royals

Tigers squander late lead, split doubleheader with Royals

After a walk-off win in game one, the Tigers blew a ninth inning lead to split a pair of 3-2 games with Kansas City. The Detroit Tigers were flying high for most of the day. They won the first game of their doubleheader against the Kansas City Royals 3-2 thanks to a walk-off home run from JaCoby Jones in the 10th inning. The win was their fourth in a row, moving them to 8-9 after a rough week against Cleveland and New York left them five games under .500. A sacrifice fly from Jones in game two gave the Tigers a 2-1 lead that they took into the ninth inning, just three outs from a .500...

Royals end long losing streak by beating Tigers, 3-2

Royals end long losing streak by beating Tigers, 3-2

The losing streak is halted before it reaches double digits. The bottom of the lineup came up in the ninth inning, and the losing streak being extended to double-digits seemed inevitable. Then, somehow, just this once, things were different for the Kansas City Royals. THEY FINALLY WON A GAME WHEN THE OPPONENT SCORED A RUN! The Royals beat the Tigers, 3-2, behind a ninth-inning rally that ended a nine-game losing streak. It just goes to show that even the worst of Royals teams still can’t be held down by the joy that is the Detroit Tigers bullpen. Earlier in the day, Jason Hammel was...

Game 18 Preview: Royals at Tigers

Norris will make his first start of the season on Friday evening. Well, that was fun! The Tigers couldn’t get much going offensively in the first game of Friday’s doubleheader against the Kansas City Royals, but JaCoby Jones made some guy on Twitter look really dumb when he lined a fastball into the bullpen for a walk-off home run. He celebrated by cursing on live TV and telling Fox Sports Detroit’s Trevor Thompson that he was hungry. These are your 2018 Detroit Tigers. The Tigers will be hoping to double the fun in Friday’s nightcap against Kansas City. The game will feature...

JaCoby Jones hits walk-off home run, ‘makes s**t happen’

JaCoby Jones hits walk-off home run, ‘makes s**t happen’

“I’m kinda hungry right now so I wanted to end it.” If anyone was wondering how JaCoby Jones is doing in his at-bats lately, he gave a pretty resounding answer with a walk-off home run against the Kansas City Royals in the first game of Friday’s doubleheader. It was clear to see Jones knew he’d hit it out of the park as his face lit up rounding the bases (don’t overlook Jeimer Candelario catching the flying batting helmet as Jones rounds on home plate). JaCoby Jones with his first career walkoff home run. Stay with us for Tigers Live on FOX Sports Detroit....

Victor Martinez may be ready to retire after this season

Victor Martinez may be ready to retire after this season

After 16 seasons, Martinez might call it a career. Victor Martinez will turn 40 this coming winter. During the 2017 season, he was sidelined due to an irregular heartbeat and ongoing health concerns. Now, with a new crop of young players coming up through the Tigers system, the designated hitter seems to be ready to say goodbye to the game of baseball. In an interview with MLB.com’s Anthony Castrovince, when asked about the idea of retirement, Martinez said, “Honestly? I’m ready, I’ve got no regrets. I know I left everything in this game.” He was open in his reflection to...

Kansas City Royals (3-13) vs. Detroit Tigers (7-9) Friday Game 1 Open Thread

Its a balmy 46 degrees in Detroit, let’s play two! The Royals are already making their second trip to Detroit this year, and will have a doubleheader today to make up for the April 4 game that was postponed due to bitterly cold weather. It is all the way up to the mid-40s for this afternoon’s game, although it could get as high as 56 this evening. Jason Hammel goes against right-hander Michael Fulmer in game one. Both could be on the trade block this summer as the Royals and Tigers undergo rebuilds. Fulmer obviously has much more value as a young, very solid pitcher with plenty of...

Hey look, the Detroit Tigers did not get postponed (yet) this week and they managed to win some games. It’s a win for everyone involved!
