Jarrod Dyson's bunt surely riled up Tigers fans, but not Justin Verlander

Jarrod Dyson's bunt surely riled up Tigers fans, but not Justin Verlander

Dysons single sparked the Mariners, and ended Verlanders perfect game. Justin Verlander was throwing a perfect game. Then Jarrod Dyson laid down the perfect bunt. And thus the potential violation of one of baseball's unlimited number of unwritten rules, albeit this was only in the sixth inning. You do not bunt to break up a no-hitter. Except Verlander -- owner of two career no-nos -- was fine with it after the game. "It was a perfect bunt," Verlander told reporters afterward. "That's part of his game. I don't think it was quite too late, given the situation, to...

What Brad Ausmus said after loss that might mark low point in Tigers' season

Were playing like crap, overall, he said SEATTLE -- Two hours into Wednesday night's game, it looked like the Detroit Tigers were delivering exactly the kind of game they needed to break out of a lengthy slump. * Justin Verlander, in the midst of a perfect game, was in 2016 form. * The Tigers offense had gotten to a top pitcher, Seattle's James Paxton. * The sometimes shaky bullpen might only be needed for an inning or two, if that. Of course, everything soon unraveled, as the Tigers lost a four-run lead and fell to the Mariners 7-5. The Tigers have now lost five...
