Tigers' Hernan Perez catches K.C.'s mistake in 3-2 win

Watching from the third-base dugout, Tigers reserve infielder Hernan Perez is the one who noticed that the Royals' Salvador Perez didn't go back and touch third base. "It was huge — it was a turning point," manager Brad Ausmus said. He meant a turning point in the Tigers' 3-2 win over the Royals at Kauffman Stadium. But he would have been just as correct...

Question for umps: What did you see and when did you see it?

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Baseball promised transparency. The replay system was new. Confusion was bound to occur. But baseball promised explanations. And on Saturday, in one of the biggest games of the season, baseball did not fully deliver. Uh, it's getting late. The postseason nearly is upon us. The scrutiny -- on replay, on umpires, on everything -- will be even higher. We all...

Game 2014.155: Tigers at Royals

Yesterday’s 3-2 victory had a bit of everything going, turning points and momentum shifts all over the place, the baseball gods frowning upon first one and then the other team. It was really something. Good thing the Tigers won, or I’d be sickened by it and unable to speak of it. It scher was a maxtastically pitched game (Zer Kommissar was in town) on both sides of the shields...

Daily DraftKings Picks: Tuesday, Sep 2

Yesterday’s team scored 109.35 points and finished 920th-of-2,300 in the Daily Moonshot. It was about as average as they come, but it likely would have been better had I been able to adjust my lineup later in the day (see: Matt Duffy). My pitchers did exactly what I expected, Buster Posey continued his hot ways, Hunter Pence had a big game, and Anthony Rendon pitched in 20.00 points...
