As previously noted on this website, getting hit in the groin by any sort of ball isn't a fun prospect for most male athletes and the latest to join that club is Tigers catcher Alex Avila.
Watch as a foul tip by Rangers infielder Elvis Andrus hit Avila in the private region:

This happens every other game he catches - ain't no way Alex Avila is having a son drafted by the Tigers.
Tigers also lose, 7-2.

The Detroit Tigers Miguel Cabrera smacked two home runs on Sunday against the Rangers to tie Hall of Famer Hank Greenberg with 331 career home runs.
The shots were taken off starter Derek Holland in the third and fifth innings.
Before the night was done, Cabrera took a total of three balls out of the park.

A 62 MPH BENDER
Does anyone have a more wicked pitching arsenal than Yu Darvish? The Texas Rangers stud pitcher matched up with Justin Verlander on Thursday in a game that surprisingly turned into a slugfest. While Verlander was rocked and couldn’t make it through three innings, Darvish got through eight to pick up his seventh win of the season. But there was one moment in particular that must...
It's been awhile since I've seen an "Eephus pitch" thrown at the Major League level but clearly, Rangers pitcher Yu Darvish knows how to use it.
Watch as he delivers a 62-mph pitch past Detroit Tigers slugger Miguel Cabrera:

23-18, 2nd place, 1.5 games behind Cle (who have now won 4 in a row)
Anibal Sanchez did his best Justin Verlander last night, and promptly got booted in the 3rd inning after allowing 11 base runners and 5 ER. The Tigers were never really in the game, and the best offense in baseball was tamed again for the 3rd straight night.
Against an opponent whose number we seemed to have for...
Miguel Cabrera hammered three home runs and had five RBI in a 11-8 loss to the Texas Rangers in Arlington. Cabrera was 4-for-4 on the night to raise his league-leading average to .384 and his RBI total to 46.
Cabrera hit a three-run homer in the third and a solo shot in the fifth off Derek Holland, then went deep again in the eighth against Tanner Scheppers.
Miguel Cabrera never had a night like this last season when he won baseball's first Triple Crown in 45 years.
And it still wasn't enough to get the Detroit Tigers a win.
David Murphy put Texas ahead for good with a three-run home run just over the wall in right field in the sixth inning, and the Rangers spoiled the second three-homer game of Cabrera's career with an...

We can all put to rest whether or not Miguel Cabrera’s “Triple Crown” season last year was a fluke or not. Going into Sunday night’s game against the Texas Rangers, Miggy was leading the majors in hitting with a .384BA 8HR, and 46RBI. Then all of a sudden the Texas Rangers and baseball fans all over the nation witnessed the best hitter...
Rick Porcello and some fine work by the bullpen gave the Detroit Tigers the lift they needed on Friday night in a 2-1 win over the Texas Rangers. Porcello, following difficult outings by Max Scherzer and Justin Verlander, struck out six and allowed just one run over 5.2 innings to pick up his second win of the year.
Jose Ortega, Drew Smyly, Joaquin Benoit and Jose Valverde then combined...
David Murphy put Texas ahead with a three-run home run, and the Rangers spoiled a three-homer game from Miguel Cabrera with an 11-8 victory against the Detroit Tigers on Sunday night.
Murphy's shot just over the fence in right field gave Texas an 8-7 lead and answered a bases-loaded double from Prince Fielder that put Detroit up by two in the sixth inning after the Rangers had...
At the best of times, the Texas Rangers are a tough matchup for the Detroit Tigers.
Remember the 2011 ALCS?
Saturday, the Tigers made it easy for them.
Two errors, a passed ball, a missed catch by Torii Hunter and an inability to keep the Rangers from stealing bases helped the Rangers post a comfortable, 7-2 victory in the third game of a four-game series.
The Tigers fell behind...
22-17, 1st place, tied w/Cle.
Yu gotta be kidding me. That was awful. Worst inning of Verlander’s career.
Let’s move on to the next game as soon as possible.
We’ll need little Ricky P to step up tonight or else we’ll be in danger of a very nasty 4 game series. (1-3 always feels like getting swept to me, and 2-2 on the road feels like a win).
The Rangers will throw out rookie...
