Tigers catcher Brayan Pena wrapped his arms around Miguel Cabrera and Max Scherzer as they swayed to the music. We doubt that the Tigers would have been in such a good mood if they weren't winning 3-0 at the time.

BEST OF MAXIM
Typically, the Fenway Faithful are responsible for belting out the words to “Sweet Caroline” during the middle of the eighth inning, but a few members of the Detroit Tigers couldn’t help themselves from joining in on Monday afternoon.
Holding a three-run lead against the Red Sox, the Tigers were feeling upbeat about their day, and they chose to commemorate the occasion with...
Though most players avoided admitting it, Tuesday night’s game felt like postseason baseball at Fenway Park.
The matchup featured not only the best two teams in the American League in the Red Sox and Tigers, but also the star of each team’s respective pitching staff.
It has been said that this year’s edition of the Boston Red Sox is built for the regular season, but ill-suited...
Miguel Cabrera is not in the Detroit Tigers' lineup for the
third straight game for Monday afternoon's matchup against the Red
Miguel Cabrera has been taken out of the Detroit Tigers' lineup for a second straight game to rest his strained abdomen.
Torii Hunter hit third, in Cabrera's spot, Sunday against the Cleveland Indians and Ramon Santiago replaced him at third base.
Detroit also kept center fielder Austin Jackson out of the lineup in the series finale, a day after he hurt his right shoulder...

Detroit 2-1 on Tuesday night, ending the Tigers right-hander's
chance to become just the second pitcher to open a season with a
The most productive offenses in baseball have lifted the Boston Red Sox and the Detroit Tigers to the AL's top records.
The availability of the majors' best hitter for a showdown between the clubs remains uncertain.
A banged-up Miguel Cabrera has sat out the last two days heading into Monday's opener of a three-game set at Fenway Park, where his Tigers have been awful...
It was a battle of two aces on Tuesday night, but Jon Lester saved one of his best performances of the season for the occasion, and he was rewarded with a hard-earned win.
The left-hander allowed only one run, and struck out a season-high nine batters over his seven innings of work. Lester outdueled Max Scherzer who was seeking his 20th win of the season, and looking to become...
8 a.m. ET: Monday’s series opener between the Red Sox and Tigers was not what you would expect from the two highest-scoring teams in baseball. Both starters took shutouts into the seventh inning, with Detroit’s Doug Fister emerging victorious in a 3-0 Tigers win.
Don’t be shocked if you see more of the same on Tuesday. The second matchup in a three-game series between the...
If you wanted to know why Max Scherzer was not able to win his 20th game of the season Tuesday night, just look at the box score.
When Torii Hunter, Miguel Cabrera (back in the lineup after missing three straight games), Prince Fielder and Victor Martinez go a combined 3-for-16 (.188) with zero RBIs, it's probably not going to be your night.
Scherzer pitched extremely well...
Should Detroit fans be worried?
Mr. Triple Crown Miguel Cabrera sat out the past two games with an abdominal strain.
Maybe, he'll play Monday at Boston. Maybe, he won't.
Maybe, he'll just play a few innings, which is what he did Thursday and Friday in Cleveland before exiting early because of that nagging injury.
What we do know is that the 2013 AL MVP indicated to...

The Red Sox have the best record in the American League coming in, but the Tigers aren’t far behind. They’ll be playing without defending MVP Miguel Cabrera, though, as...
A potential ALCS preview takes center stage on Labor Day as the Detroit Tigers visit the Boston Red Sox, two of the top teams in the American League. Detroit (80-57) leads the AL Central by 7.5 games over the Indians. Boston (82-56) has a 5.5 game lead over Tampa Bay in the AL East. Both teams are poised to make the postseason and could be on a...
Fenway Park is home to one of the best non-baseball baseball tradition. Between the top and bottom half of the eighth inning, Neil Diamond’s “Sweet Caroline” is played and sung along to by Red Sox nation. It’s been going on since 2003 for seemingly no reason at all. On Monday, four Tigers joined the Bostonians by swaying and (hardly) singing along with the...
