Game 2015.15: Yankees at Tigers

As good as Monday’s game was, the Tigers dribbled through Tuesday’s game like an egregiously under-inflated basketball.  It’s not that the game wasn’t close; The Lobster, despite a shaky start, got through 6 innings with only one run, and the Tigers went into the 7th down only 1-0. In fact Detroit had the winning run at the plate in the bottom of the 9th. But somehow this...

Game 2015.3: Twins at Tigers

When the Tigers trotted off the chilly Comerica diamond with an easy 11-0 win to warm them, I doubt any of them realized they had done something no Tiger team had ever done, which is begin the season with two consecutive shutouts. In fact, the last time any American League team did the double-shutout start was when the 1977 Angels did so, behind Nolan Ryan and good old Frank Tanana...
