Tigers 9, Red Sox 8: Miguel Cabrera, offense salvage slim win despite Mike Pelfrey’s start

Pelfrey nearly undid the offense’s big night. A Mike Pelfrey start was once again fraught with danger, and the Tigers’ only help came from the offense. Led by Miguel Cabrera’s two-run home run, the Detroit bats refused to give in and knocked their way to a too-close 9-8 win over the Red Sox. Cabrera’s homer gave Tigers fans a warm and fuzzy feeling in the first inning. The...

Pelfrey takes the mound against the Marlins

DETROIT -- The Detroit Tigers will be facing a much better and more confident Miami Marlins team Tuesday than the one they beat twice to open the 2016 season. And while Miami is on an uptick, Detroit is just ticked after getting swept for the third time this season by the Cleveland Indians this past weekend.

Twins pitcher Mike Pelfrey did something funky with his lips
