Game 2012.150: Twins at Tigers

22.09.2012 26 comments

Detroit Tigers, 79-70, 2nd place, 1.5 back. OK, let’s try 150 again.  The weather doesn’t exactly look promising today either, and with a day-night doubleheader on Sunday, the Tigers are already in a jam with their pitching rotation; Detroit will need 6 pitchers over the next 5 days. The good new is that Max Scherzer […]

Detroit Tigers, 79-70, 2nd place, 2 back. You can’t win them all. Even the very best teams lose 40% of the time; that’s baseball. The Tigers took 2 games out of 3 from a very successful Oakland A’s team, which all-in-all was a successful series. And yet…to look so bad losing, at this point in […]

(sorry for the late post) 79-69, 2nd place, 2 games behind CWS, E# 13. Quick turnaround today. Let’s not discount how well the Tigers have played over the last two days. The Athletics were the ALs hottest team coming into Detroit, posting an 8-2 record over their last 10 games and going 22-9 over the […]

78-69, 2nd place, 3 games behind CWS, E# 13 (same as Oak). Well, last night was fun, but we actually lost ground if you consider the fact that we have one less game to catch-up to the White Sox. This is going to be a very tough last few weeks. The Cabrera for MVP and […]

77-69, 2nd place, 3 games behind CWS. The Tigers literally threw the game away yesterday afternoon when an errant toss from Omar Infante skipped by Prince Fielder and the tying and winning runs crossed home for Cleveland. That singular play, no more than 10 seconds long, offers a candid perspective into the team’s late season […]

77-68, 2nd place, 2 games behind CWS. Before we get too upset about last night’s game, let’s remember that the Tigers had won 4 in a row heading into the game, and we’re not going to win them all. Not even against Cleveland. Jose Valverde, however, does need to be looked at. If you’re questioning […]

Detroit Tigers, 77-67, 2nd place, 1 back. After 6 2/3 innings of no-hit pitching and a 5-3 victory, the Tigers continued their push for the Central division title.  And after 6 2/3 innings of no-hit pitching and a 5-3 victory, the White Sox continued their push for the Central division title.

Detroit Tigers, 76-67, 2nd place, 1 back. Last night again went according to plan, as Justin Verlander shook off his last start and shut out the Indians, with the help of some diving stops by the big guys on the corners. Today Anibal Sanchez will try to do his part as the Tigers look to […]

Detroit Tigers, 75-67, 2nd place, 1 back. OK, let’s try this again. Rained out yesterday, Justin Verlander still has the ball for tonight’s game against Cleveland and Corey Kluber. You may remember him: Cy Kluber beat Detroit (3-2, naturally) on Sept. 3 for his first, and only major league victory. The result of pushing back […]

75-67, 2nd place, 1 game behind CWS. Scherzer was spectacular again, and with his team leading 16th win, he’s got an outside shot at 20 wins this year. “So that gets us to tonight. Regular season games don’t get any better. Division rival. Ace v. Young Phenom. Win and we’re tied for first. My plan is […]

74-67, 2nd place, 2 games behind CWS. Well, can one swing of the bat turn around a miserable two week stretch? It certainly felt like that in the 5th inning of last night’s game when AJax parked one 400 feet away in the left center field seats.  The Tigers won and remain a manageable distance […]

73-67, 2nd place, 3 games behind CWS. Baseball is a cruel game. Omar Infante has played 335 innings for the Tigers, roughly 1/2 of how many he played for the Marlins. He has 6 errors so far with Detroit, compared to 8 with Miami, and a RF that has slipped almost a full point. Perhaps […]
