Detroit Tigers: 82-61, 1st Place (5.5 ahead of Cleveland).
The Tigers still have a fairly comfortable 5.5 game lead over Cleveland, so things are hardly going badly. Although they may have the race in hand, it is hardly encouraging to watch them hobble down the home stretch (literally and figuratively), and hardly a good harbinger for the postseason.
The playoffs are mostly about...
Everything was fine until three batters into the game.
Or until the third pitch to the third batter.
At that point the continuation of a Tigers trip which hasn’t exactly been their best got worse got angrier maybe even got a little worrisome with a 5-1 loss Monday night to the White Sox.
And with the early ejection of Miguel Cabrera.
The loss trimmed the Tigers’ lead over...
It was a unique sight in Chicago when Tigers superstar Miguel Cabrera was tossed during his first at-bat as the Tigers took on the White Sox.
The ejection came in just the first inning of the matchup when, in the second pitch of his at-bat, Miggy was hit on the knee by a wild pitch from Chris Sale. Home plate umpire Brian Gorman ruled that Cabrera had swung on the pitch and called...

And here we go again with MLB umpires injecting themselves too much into a baseball game.
During the first inning of tonight’s Tigers/White Sox game, third baseman Miguel Cabrera was struck in the leg by a pitch from Chicago’s Chris Sale. However instead of taking first base home plate umpire Brian Gorman called Cabrera on a swinging strike as the All-Star pleaded to get an appeal...

Those same people are probably rethinking that opinion.
Sanchez, 29, won his career-best 14th game and career-best seventh straight decision with a 1-0 victory over the Chicago White Sox Wednesday...
