OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) -- Miguel Cabrera broke out of a slump with two RBI hits in Detroit's eight-run third inning and the Tigers went on to beat the Oakland Athletics 10-6 on Thursday night. Cabrera, who came into the game hitless in his previous 14 at-bats, finished with four hits, including an RBI double and a run-scoring single in the big third inning. Cabrera also had an RBI single in the fifth. Alex Avila added a two-run double in the third and Delmon Young, Brennan Boesch and Ramon Santiago also had run-scoring hits in the inning as the Tigers knocked out Bartolo Colon (3-3) early in their highest-scoring game since putting up 13 runs against Boston in the third game of the season.

16 irritating things about the Detroit Tigers

I don’t spend a lot of my time complaining about the Detroit Tigers and their current tribulations. In fact, I spend much of my free time reminding those that do complain why everything is going to be ok despite a sloppy 15-15 start to our season of hope. But, after 30 games of this nonsense, it’s time for me to vent a little. a young Prince Fielder sporting a Tigers hat, Giants...

Game 2012.30: Tigers at Mariners

15-14, 2 games behind Cle. Boy, last night was fun. On a night when Verlander was far from his best (and apologetic for his on-field behavior), the offense came through and left just enough cushion for Valverde to load the bases on 3 walks (one intentional) before closing out the game. It’s been hashed and rehashed, but the blowpen has become a serious concern. In case you haven’t...

Tigers waste Smyly's strong start

Drew Smyly keeps giving the Detroit Tigers great chances to win games. The offense keeps refusing to take them. Wednesday, Smyly continued the amazing start to his career - allowing one run in six innings - but the slumping offense managed just a single run in a 2-1 loss to the Seattle Mariners. Smyly now has a 1.59 ERA in six career starts, but has only one win to show for it...

Jim Leyland invites fans to second guess him

Tigers skipper Jim Leyland is known to some as the “Wizard of Woodward” and known to others as the “Wretch of Wrongness” based on the decisions he makes on a nightly basis.  Baseball managers have to make countless decisions game-in and game-out – his batting order, who will be available out of the bullpen, when to bunt, when to hit and run, when to make a pitching change...

Tigers Minor League watch

For Tigers fans, even if the first six weeks of the season have been a bit of a disappointment, the short-term future is bright. While the team has some holes, they still have an offense built around Miguel Cabrera and Prince Fielder and one of the best young starting rotations in the game. Can they fill those holes from the minor-league system, either this season or next? Is the...

Inge putting up Gehrig-like numbers

Brandon Inge has just done something no one has done since Lou Gehrig in 1931. The A's new third baseman, released by the Tigers late last month, has had four four-RBI games in a five-game span. That Gehrig-matching total includes two games with grand slams, and two games with three-run homers plus RBI singles. The only other A's player to drive in 16 runs in five games...

A's bring back Carignan and Cowgill, send down Miller and Taylor

The Oakland A's recalled right-handed pitcher Andrew Carignan and outfielder Collin Cowgill from Class AAA Sacramento and optioned right-handed pitcher Jim Miller and outfielder Michael Taylor to Sacramento, the club announced on Friday. Carignan was on the A's Opening Day roster and posted a 6.23 ERA in five relief appearances before he was optioned to Sacramento on April...

Game 2012.32: Tigers at Athletics

Yesterday we mentioned we would take a look at the Tiger DH performance.  Then again, you may want to avert your eyes. Currently the Tiger DH line (BA, OBP, SLG, OPS) looks like this: Tigers DH:  .192  .228  .283  .512 AL Avg DH:.263  .334  .454  .788 With those numbers we could have kept Brandon Inge, shifted him to DH, and come out ahead. Of course the league averages...

Penny the latest big name to disappoint in Japan

(Adds AP Photo.) By JIM ARMSTRONG AP Sports Writer American pitcher Brad Penny was released by the Softbank Hawks after appearing in just one game for the Pacific League team, becoming the latest in a long list of former major league players to struggle to adjust to Japan's unique brand of baseball. The Hawks cut Penny on Tuesday, granting the player's request to be released...

Oh My top Ten

Every year in baseball there are surprises. If baseball followed a repeatable formula it wouldn’t be nearly as exciting as it is. There is one theme that seems to be following this season and it’s an alarming one for most fantasy players.
