>>caption:  ROMINE (L) CROSSED THE
PLATE, THEN WAS THE FIRST TO CELEBRATE
THE GW-HIT WITH IGLESIAS (R)<<

@ COMERICA PARK:

    Jose Oglesias singled home pinch-runner
Andrew Romine from 3Base with 1-out in
the B-9th for a Tiger 2-1 walkoff win over
the Chicago White Sox Friday afternoon in
the opener of a 3-game weekend series.

    With their third straight pitchers duel
win Detroit improved to 9-1 on the season
to match the best 10-game start in team
history (in 1911, 1968 & 1984) .

    The Tigers have won their last three games by 2-0, 1-0 and 2-1 scores
with the starters going 8-INN in each case.

    Nick Castellanos led-off the B-9th with a double off the glove of WSox

had lengthy discussions with multiple umpires, no video challenge was allowed....   [ Read More... ]

David Price came within one out of throwing the eighth complete game Opening Day shutout in Tiger history when he went 8.2-!P in the 4-0 win over Minnesota on 4/6/2015. Seven of the nine Tiger O-Day shutouts were complete game victories. Of the six Tigers who tossed Opening Day complete game shutouts, one of them did it twice by identical 2-0 scores.

  • Fan Fact

    APRIL 18, 1915:     The Tigers opened a home series with Chicago and edged the White Sox 8-7 . The visitors had tied the game 7-all with a trio of runs in the T-7th and Detroit got the game-winner in the B-8th. Ty Cobb went 2-for-3 with a double, triple, 2-W and 3-R and Ralph Young was 3-for-4 with a double and 3-R to top the Tiger offense. Bunny Brief doubled and drove in three Chicago runs while Hap Felsch tripled and batted in two. Third Tiger pitcher Hooks Dauss went the final 2.1-IP in scoreless fashion to earn the win (2-0). Third WSox hurler Mellie Wolfgang gave up just 1-R/1-ER over the final 4-IP to suffer the loss (0-1) exactly one year after his big league debut. Over five MLB seasons from 1914--18, all with the White Sox, Wolfgang went 15-14 with a  2.18-ERA.


    POW Award

    MIGUEL CABRERA
    At the end of MLB's Opening Week, four Tigers topped the American League batting race. While you can make a serious argument for either Jose Iglesias (.526-BA), Anthony Gose (.450) or Ian Kinsler (.440) being our Player-of-the-Week Award winner for the period of April 6th--12th, 2015, especially considering their play on defense, our POW Award selection is Miguel Cabrera. After a slow start at home Cabrera had an incredible 11-for-14 weekend series at Cleveland. He became the first Tiger since Curtis Granderson in 2008 to have back-to-back 4-hit games. Cabrera's first two homeruns of the season traveled 410 and 415-feet as part of a 4-for-4, 4-RBI effort in an 8-5 win vs the Indians on APR 12TH where he was intentionally walked in his last at-bat even though a runner already occupied 1Base. Cabrera's 23 homeruns are the most career HRs by a visiting player at Progressive Field. After Week One, Cabrera led the AL with 13-H, was tied for first with 8-RBI and had a league best .586-OBP. Cabrera was runner-up with 2-HR, a .520-BA and .840 slugging percentage. Cabrera earned his first POW Award this year and 23rd overall.
