Tigers 4, White Sox 1: Sunday Sweep in the Windy City

Photo by Nuccio DiNuzzo/ The Tigers completed the sweep of the White Sox to end their hopes of winning the division. Facing the possible American League Cy Young winner in Dylan Cease, the Tigers were able to find a way to complete the weekend by beating the White Sox 4-1 in Sunday’s finale. Tyler Alexander started on the mound for Detroit and threw the ball extremely well. The offense wasn’t able to get anything going for much of the game, but some late inning heroics lifted them to victory while also eliminating the White Sox from the AL Central Division hunt —...

Joe Jiménez’s breakout campaign ends with an injury

Photo by Jim McIsaac/ A lumbar strain sends the right-hander to the 15-day IL, effectively ending his superb 2022 season. Based on how the 2022 Detroit Tigers’ season has played out, season ending injuries are no surprise on the pitching front. That said, it’s really too bad that a superb breakout campaign from reliever Joe Jiménez has ended with only a week and a half remaining due to a lumbar strain. The club announced on Saturday that the right-hander has been moved to the 15-day injured list, effectively ending him season. Early reports indicate it isn’t too...

Tigers 7, White Sox 2 : Hittin’ Harold and Javier Báez power Detroit to a series win

Jamie Sabau-USA TODAY Sports Drew Hutchison was his usual decent self, but the top half of the lineup really got it done once again. Another good performance from the top of the lineup and a well played game overall saw the Tigers take their second in a row over the White Sox by a score of 7-2 on Saturday night. The Tigers offense once again got out to a quick start in this one against White Sox’ rookie Davis Martin. The 25-year-old right-hander showed a pretty good fastball and a solid pair of breaking balls, but his command failed him a few times and quality AB’s...

Tigers 5, White Sox 3: Detroit steals a win in the Windy City

Matt Marton-USA TODAY Sports The kids came up big all night in a pretty solid win for the Tigers. The Detroit Tigers took down the Chicago White Sox Friday night by a score of 5-3. The offense got going early but then cooled off in typical Tigers fashion. Fortunately, the young core of the team came up big after the White Sox came back to tie things up late. This was Detroit’s fifth game of the year against White Sox starter Lucas Giolito, and the Motor City Kitties had his number early. Riley Greene did what every manager wants his leadoff hitter to do and drew an...

On that point, the Motor City Kitties need to win six of their final 13 games to prevent the embarrassing achievement.

Erie SeaWolves 6, Richmond Flying Squirrels 2 (box) The SeaWolves pulled out all the stops, mixing three different starting pitchers to tame the Squirrels in Game 2.

Orioles 8, Tigers 1: Jordan Lyles spins complete game against Tigers

Jessica Rapfogel-USA TODAY Sports Kerry Carpenter ruins the Maddux attempt for Jordan Lyles. The Detroit Tigers came into the series finale with the Baltimore Orioles looking to do something it had never done before in franchise history, sweep a season series of 6 games or more. Unfortunately, Jordan Lyles had other ideas and the Orioles hitters got to Manning to take the series finale, 8-1. Jordan Lyles completely flummoxed the Tiger’s bats in this one. They were swinging early but Lyles got soft contact often as he pounded the zone with balls the Tigers couldn’t...

Tigers 3, Orioles 2: Wentz deals, Detroit hangs on for the victory

Mitch Stringer-USA TODAY Sports Joey Wentz had another great start, and the Tiger bullpen danced with disaster but ultimately came through.

Tigers 11, Orioles 0: Miguel Cabrera’s return sparks offense

Tommy Gilligan-USA TODAY Sports Miggy got things going for Detroit early and the kids took it from there. It didn't take long for Miguel Cabrera to reintroduce himself to the Detroit Tigers’ lineup. The future Hall of Famer played a pivotal role in Detroit’s 11-0 win over the Baltimore Orioles Monday night, as did Riley Greene and starting pitcher Tyler Alexander. Miggy got the scoring going early by driving in Javier Báez during the first inning with a single to left-center field. Cabrera hadn’t played since September 2 because of a biceps injury that landed him...
