Fueled by starter Blaine Hardy's 5 1/3 innings of one-run ball and Nicholas Castellanos' two-run home run, the Tigers completed their three-game series sweep of the White Sox with a win on Sunday afternoon at Guaranteed Rate Field. Their fifth consecutive win moved them to within a game of .500 for the first time since […]
The Tigers' relative success this season has been a pleasant surprise for many, but it will not change the team's plans, either this season or long term. If anything, general manager Al Avila sees it as a sign that they're headed in the right direction.
The Tigers are off Monday before their road trip resumes in Cincinnati with a 7:10 p.m. ET start on Tuesday against the Reds at Great American Ball Park. Matthew Boyd (4-4, 3.23 ERA) will take the mound -- and a bat -- for Detroit, opposite Sal Romano (3-7, 5.67).
The Tigers rallied again late to extend their winning streak to four games. Jose Iglesias' RBI infield single off former teammate Bruce Rondon keyed a two-run eighth inning, sending Detroit to victory over the White Sox on Saturday afternoon at Guaranteed Rate Field. Nicholas Castellanos had two home runs and five RBIs in the win, […]
After studying for his citizenship test with teammates and clubhouse video coordinator Andy Bjornstad, Tigers shortstop Jose Iglesias took his test Friday morning in Detroit. Iglesias passed the test, then traveled to Chicago, where he joined the team in time for the game. His formal ceremony, perhaps fittingly, will be on the field at Comerica […]
Mike Fiers didn't get a win for his 33rd birthday, but the Tigers picked up their third consecutive victory with another late rally. John Hicks singled and scored on an infield grounder in the eighth inning to lift Detroit to a 4-3 win over the White Sox on Friday night at Guaranteed Rate Field. Hicks […]
Michael Fulmer earned his first win at Comerica Park since last July 15 the hard way, dueling Lance Lynn for seven innings before JaCoby Jones' slump-busting two-run homer in the seventh put the Tigers on top for a win over the Twins on Thursday afternoon. Lynn held Detroit scoreless until Niko Goodrum hit a sacrifice […]
John Hicks was one of the Tigers' most productive hitters in May while filling in for an injured Miguel Cabrera. With Cabrera now out for the rest of the year, they'll need about a half-season of that from their backup catcher turned primary first baseman.
The Tigers don't have Miguel Cabrera in their lineup, but they still have the Rally Goose in their dugout. Victor Reyes' go-ahead RBI single fueled a four-run eighth inning, sending Detroit to a 5-2 comeback victory over the Twins on Wednesday night at Comerica Park. John Hicks and Niko Goodrum each had three hits for […]
