The Detroit Tigers got tired on Thursday night, and when that happens teams make mistakes. The mistake the Tigers made was trying to score on a Rick Ankiel’s arm. Check out Rick Ankiel’s laser throw from right field in the top of the 11th which cut down the go-ahead run at the plate. Just another case of Rick being Rick. The Tigers still went on to win in 14 innings by a score of 7-3. Your browser does not support iframes. [@MLB] Article found on: Next Impulse Sports

TDSS Tigers Recap, Game 29: Miguel Cabrera Homers Twice, Collects 6 RBI in 17-2 Win

We’re only in the first days of May, but Miguel Cabrera appears primed for a run at another Triple Crown. The Detroit Tigers’ superstar third baseman went 4-for-4 with two homers and six RBI in a 17-2, Saturday night rout of the Houston Astros. With that effort, Cabrera boosted his average to a league-leading .390, took over the top spot in the RBI race with 36 and bumped his...

Tigers 4, Astros 3

Alex Avila hit a two-run home run in the ninth inning, lifting the Detroit Tigers to a 4-3 win over the Houston Astros on Friday night. After Houston closer Jose Veras walked Don Kelly to open the inning, Avila hit a 3-1 pitch to deep center field and help the Tigers get their second straight win. Jose Altuve's RBI single in the seventh inning capped a three-run rally and gave...

Q&A: Lucas Harrell, Astros Sinkerballer Supreme

When Lucas Harrell takes the mound this weekend against the Tigers, batters can expect to see a lot of two-seam fastballs. The Houston Astros right-hander has thrown his signature pitch 61.8 percent of the time this season. In his most recent start — a shut-down effort against the Yankees — 75 of his 105 pitches were two-seamers averaging 92.4 mph. Harrell has been specializing...

Houston Astros Recall Dallas Keuchel And Jordan Lyles, Option 2 Others

The Houston Astros made a handful of moves Thursday that affected their parent roster. They recalled pitchers Dallas Keuchel and Jordan Lyles from Triple-A Oklahoma while optioning pitchers Brad Peacock and Rhiner Cruz to Triple-A Oklahoma City. Lyles faced the Detroit Tigers on Thursday, getting the spot-start where as Keuchel should fill in amongst the dead arms in the Houston...

Game 2013.29: Tigers at Astros

Again it didn’t come easy, but the Tigers are right where they wanted to be, taking the first two games of the four-game series with the struggling Astros, thanks partly to contributions by the slumping Alex Avila and by everyone’s favorite bench donkey, Don Kelly (his working a 1-2 count into a walk ahead of Avila’s home run was one of the subtle plays of the game). Tonight...

Tigers 7, Astros 3(14)

When Detroit's Don Kelly watched Miguel Cabrera and Prince Fielder take consecutive intentional walks to load the bases in the 14th inning, he wasn't surprised. He also knew it set up a great chance for him to end this marathon game. Kelly took advantage of it, singling in the go-ahead run to start a four-run 14th inning and the Tigers beat the Houston Astros 7-3 Thursday...

Detroit Tigers talk with Joe White and Jack Ebling

On Thursday afternoon I talked Detroit Tigers on The Drive With Jack Ebling Show. Our main topic of discussion was the polarizing play of Alex Avila. He has hit two homers this week, including the go-ahead 2-run blast in Friday night’s win, but should we expect good things from him? Have a listen:

Fan makes great catch in stands at Astros game OH MY GOD HE’S HOLDING A BABY! (video)

A fan sitting along the first base line towards right field at Minute Maid Park during Thursday’s game between the Houston Astros and Detroit Tigers made an impressive grab of a blooped foul ball that bounced into the stands. And he secured the ball with the adept use of his hat. While holding a baby. The impressive but risky snatch of a souvenir occurred in the bottom of the 13th...

Avila's Offensive Struggles Cause for Concern

While some Tigers have had hot starts, and some slow starts, arguably no start to the season has been more scrutinized than the production of Alex Avila at the plate, and his continued struggles after his All-Star 2011 season. Just what should we make of Avila’s start, and is this an ominous sign of future production?

Man Grabs Foul Ball Without Endangering Baby

((HT: CSN Houston)) It's well known that it's easy to get seats at Houston Astros games these days... And there are plenty of seats even more available in extra innings... Evidence last night when the Tigers and Astros are in extras and a new dad gets to field the grounder with a babe-in-arms... Here's the grab... Your browser does not support iframes. Looks...

Avila blast lifts Tigers over Astros, 4-3

The smiles told the story. When Tigers catcher Alex Avila stroked the two-run, ninth-inning homer that would make his team a 4-3 winner Friday night over the Astros in Houston, he raised his fist rounding first base and smiled. It was a look of both pure joy and relief. April was a difficult month for Avila. He batted .183 and had to hold his head up while walking back to the dugout...
