Miguel Cabrera of the Detroit Tigers is a great hitter but a slow runner who should not have been on third base in the eighth inning Wednesday night.
Doug Fister delivered another strong start in a game Detroit needed and Miguel Cabrera homered and hit a tiebreaking double to lead the Tigers past the Texas Rangers 5-2 Tuesday night in Game 3 of the AL championship series.
Score and situation: Home, sweet Michigan. The Detroit Tigers got a much-needed power surge from their sluggers, along with another fine outing by right-hander Doug Fister (tipping his cap) in beating the Texas Rangers 5-2 to get on the board in the ALCS. Texas leads the series 2-1.
Leading lads: Victor Martinez sort of pulled a mini-Kirk Gibson when he apparently strained an oblique...
The Tigers are on the board in the ALCS. Doug Fister threw 7 1/3 solid innings and was backed by plenty of power in a 5-2 win. The Rangers lead 2-1 going into Game 4 on Wednesday.
What was Ron Washington thinking? And more importantly, what was Colby Lewis doing?
With Victor Martinez in the on-deck circle after he injured his oblique in his previous at-bat while tying the game with a solo home run off Colby Lewis and runners on first and third base, up to the plate stepped the American League batting champion and one of the most feared hitters in the game...
Who's healthiest? How will Matt Harrison do? Why pitch to Miguel Cabrera? Plus more
Nelson Cruz with a well-earned shaving-cream pie.
Colby Lewis (1-0, 1.50) vs. Doug Fister (1-1, 6.52).
Uh, I think Texas has the momentum in this one. Yesterday, an extra-innings walkoff grand slam by Nelson Cruz — his second of the game — gave the Rangers a 2-0 series lead, and the psychological edge. The Tigers return to the comfort of Comerica Park, but is it enough with...
I'm pressed for time today, as I have a lot of things going on, so I can't write about this one too much, as much as I'd like to.
I think I can sum it up pretty good with the graphic I created after Cruz's grand slam the other night. It fits well here, too.
Obviously, that's not the only thing going on, but last night, Mr. Boomstick got his second home run...
Thursday is a great day for sports. We have an MLB Playoff doubleheader and a strong college football game. Only one of the games do I have a strong enough feel to put my money on it.
And that is Game 5 of the ALCS between the Texas Rangers and the Detroit Tigers. The game has a first pitch of 4:15.
Game 4 in their series was once again delayed by rain, was again decided in extra...
Ryan Raburn hits a one-out home run off Koji Uehara in the bottom of the seventh to extend the Tigers lead to 7-2. He’s slugging .684 in the series.
Update: After another walk to Miguel Cabrera and a pop-out by Victor Martinez, Mike Adams comes in to get the last out. The Tigers take a 7-2 lead to the eighth inning.
Seeing Albert Pujols, Ryan Braun and Prince Fielder tear up the NLCS, and with Miguel Cabrera and all those Rangers sluggers raking in the AL, we are looking at a different kind of October -- a hitter's month.
After a 7-3 victory in Game 4 of the 2011 ALCS, the Texas Rangers are one win away from reaching the World Series for the second year in a row. The Detroit Tigers, on the other had, face the daunting task of winning three straight games to avoid elimination.
In Game 4, the Tigers got on the board first when Miguel Cabrera hit a two-run double in the bottom of the third inning. The...
