Bizarre ruling and lack of clutch hitting doom Royals

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Say what you will about bad bounces or bad breaks or even bad umpiring that might have cost the Royals, the truth is the Detroit Tigers simply hit better when it matters these days. The Tigers proved that again in a 3-2 win Saturday at Kauffman Stadium over the Royals, a crushing loss that put a huge dent in the Royals' hopes of winning the AL Central. The...

Crew chief explains how umpires got non-reviewable play right

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The umpiring crew at the Detroit-Kansas City game didn't use the Kauffman Stadium video board to decide a wild play in the sixth inning during the Tigers 3-2 victory at Kauffman Stadium on Saturday afternoon. Tied 1-1 with one out in the bottom of the sixth, Kansas City's Salvador Perez was on third, Eric Hosmer on second and Omar Infante was at the plate...

Royals lose a key run when umpires overturn their own call without review

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- There is no question Sal Perez failed to tag at third base before scoring on a play that began with an Omar Infante line drive being caught by second baseman Ian Kinsler. The Kansas City Royals, in dire need of a win in a key series with the AL Central-leading Tigers, still should have been credited with the run but got the short end of the stick from umpires...

9/20 Tigers Roundup: Today’s lineup, Miggy’s New Commercial

– The Tigers offense exploded last night, as Detroit put up 19 hits and jumping out to a quick 10-0 lead.

Game 2014.154: Tigers at Royals

I had to think about it, but I’ve decided I like winning 10-1 better than losing 8-4. Justin “Ricky” Verlander dominated KC without really being dominant. Pretty darn good. He didn’t seem too happy about being lifted from the game rather unnecessarily, or maybe he was just upset with Ezequiel Carrera’s nonchalance in allowing a runner to tag and advance to 3B, but that...

Ian Kinsler's defensive skills making up for offensive woes

There's no hiding the fact that Ian Kinsler has struggled badly at the plate in the second half of the season. Kinsler knows it, Brad Ausmus knows it, and every one of his teammates knows it. As long as he keeps playing defense the way he has all season, they are OK with it. Kinsler reached the All-Star break hitting .303, and though he doesn't walk much, 26 doubles and 11...

Kinsler Homer Helps Sweep Tribe Out of Detroit; Tigers 6, Indians 4

Did the Tribe Win Last Night? Nope. After getting out to a 3-1 lead in the top of the sixth inning, poor Indians defense and a two-run homer by Detroit’s Ian Kinsler gave the Tigers a 6-4 victory. It was the second straight night that Shaw allowed a go-ahead, home run to the Tigers. Detroit tacked on two more, necessary insurance runs in the bottom of the eighth in part when C...
