The Detroit Sports Site:
The Detroit Tigers’ two potential home games vs. Oakland in the ALDS both were handed early start times by Major League Baseball. The Tigers and A’s will start Game 3 at 1:07 p.m. ET Monday, with Game 4 (if necessary) set for a 5 p.m. start. (Should be fun getting in and out of the city for that one …) If the Red Sox-Rays series ends in three, that Game 4 time would push back to 7:07.
Game 5, also if necessary, would be back in Oakland on Thurs., Oct. 10. That game will start at 9:07 if there’s also a Game 5 in the Rays-Red Sox series, or at 8:07 if that series has concluded.
Here’s the updated ALDS schedule, for both series:

Jhonny Peralta is on the Detroit Tigers 25-man roster for the American League Division Series, which was no surprise.
Peralta, the All-Star shortstop who missed the stretch run with a 50-day suspension for PED use, has moved to left field. He hit .250 in three games at that position after returning to the team one week ago, but will come off the bench Friday night in Game 1 against...
This new season is off to a great start. For the “bad guys,” 27 outs and 16 of them strikeouts. 2 runs, and you can practically write off one of them. 3 hits, 6 baserunners. This, for the good guys, against an Oakland team that has pretty much demolished everything in its path since they fired up the steamroller in their last meeting with the Tigers. Outstanding.
As the Detroit Tigers prepare to face the Oakland Athletics in the American League Division Series for the second straight season, there are a few concerns about their chances.
1. The health and effectiveness of Miguel Cabrera: Since just before the All-Star break, Cabrera has been dealing with an abdominal strainhip flexor injury. The doctors and training staff said that he could...
Jhonny Peralta is on the Detroit Tigers' roster for the AL division series against the Oakland Athletics.
Just over a week ago, the All-Star shortstop completed his 50-game suspension for ties to the Biogenesis clinic accused of distributing performance-enhancing drugs.
Peralta isn't in the starting lineup for Game 1 on Friday night in Oakland. The Tigers acquired shortstop...
It doesn't matter all that much to Max Scherzer when or where he pitches, or exactly how he goes about piling up his victories.
Pitching the opener of the playoffs still meant plenty - and his spectacular Game 1 performance provided quite an October jolt for the Detroit Tigers as they chase a return trip to the World Series.
Given the ball from manager Jim Leyland ahead of...
Don Kelly was the victim of an errant foul ball on Saturday.
The moment came in the second inning when Detroit Tigers teammate Omar Infante fouled a pitch off that just so happened to smack directly into Kelly standing in the on deck circle.
What are the odds, you ask? Apparently, better than one might think.
It could have ended much worse for him, though. Namely, the groin...
Max Scherzer and his bullpen stymied that late-game swagger that carried the Oakland Athletics so many times this season.
The A's were rattled and frustrated, and they showed it - an uncharacteristic scene for this easygoing group of AL West champions.
Scherzer overpowered Oakland's hitters with his dominant fastball, and then baffled them with his off-speed stuff. He struck...
The Detroit Tigers got off to a 3-0 lead in the first inning off of Oakland ace Bartolo Colon in last night’s game one of the ALDS. It would prove to be all of the offense that the Tigers would get and would need as Max Scherzer was in typical Scherzer form by striking out 11 and giving up only two runs. After the game, I began to think about a few things that we could take...
After a rousing 2012 American League Division Series, the Oakland A's and the Detroit Tigers will match-up again in the best-of-five-game series. We take a close look at the key match-ups going into the series.
The Oakland Athletics walked off against the Detroit Tigers in the bottom of the 9th Saturday, winning 1-0 on a Stephen Vogt bases-loaded single. The win tied the A’s with the Tigers in the ALDS at one game apiece with Game 3 coming Monday in Detroit.
Tigers starter, Justin Verlander, went 7 innings and struck out 11 while giving up only four hits. Matching that effort was...
The autumn winds are blowing in Detroit and after finishing off the regular season by getting no-hit by Henderson Alvarez of the Miami Marlins it’s time for postseason baseball.
And for the second straight year — and the fourth time ever — the Tigers and A’s will square off in the postseason.
With these two teams and their familiarity playing each other when it counts the...
OAKLAND, CA – In a much anticipated game that Tigers and A’s fans were waiting all week to watch, Game 1 of this year’s ALDS was full of the drama and intrigue that dominated last year’s classic. The last series to get underway, a winner wouldn’t be declared until the early hours of the morning but those who stayed up saw an extremely competitive game between two great...
