Detroit comes up big in extra innings after bullpen blows late lead in Tampa

Ian Kinsler hasn't done much at the plate for the Detroit Tigers since the All-Star break. But he came up big Tuesday night. Kinsler hit a leadoff triple and scored the go-ahead run when Victor Martinez drew a bases-loaded walk in the 11th inning to lead the Tigers to a 8-6 win over the Tampa Bay Rays at Tropicana Field. The win snapped a four-game losing streak on the road...

Ian Kinsler And The Worst Throw He’s Ever Made

In a tie game in the seventh inning, Ian Kinsler caught a soft liner and had a chance to turn a double play. After catching the ball, he attempted to do that. It didn’t work out too well. The Tigers are actually fortunate Kinsler’s throw was so bad that it went straight down, as the runner couldn’t advance to third base. And, luckily for Kinsler, that meant he wasn’t charged...

Ian Kinsler spikes throw vs. Yankees

Not nearly as embarrassing as Ryan Raburn’s spiked throw in left field that turned into a ‘little league home run.’ It seems like Kinsler was trying to hold up on his throw, slipped on the grass and then let go of the ball as his arm went forward. No harm done.  Kinsler’s embarrassed himself more with his sliding than this throw. Kinsler's "Not Top 10" moment...

Detroit Tigers rumors: are they done?

Could this truly be it for the Detroit Tigers’ offseason leading up to a hopeful 2014 campaign? GM Dave Dombrowski has acted in a quick and decisive fashion to remodel the roster from a group of plodding bashers to a speedy, more energetic team.
