    The shell-shocked Tigers
departed Toronto after a 9-2
Sunday matinee decision gave
the Blue Jays a 3-game series sweep.

    The Jays hit four more homers, all off Detroit starter Alfredo Simon
(L, 11-9), giving Toronto 11 round-trippers for the weekend. Toronto
out-scored Detroit 29-6 in the series.

    The free-falling Tigers have lost 9-of-10. The super hot Blue Jays have
won 10-of-12.

The Tiger record for most stolen bases in one game is five, set by Johnny Neun on 7/9/1927 in a 14-4 win vs the New York Yankees in the nightcap of a Navin Field doubleheader. (Ty Cobb stole four in a game four times.)  The Tiger record for getting caught attempting to steal is three times in a game. By who?

    Fan Fact

    AUGUST 31, 1947:     The Tigers swept a Sunday doubleheader from the Browns before only 4,943 fans at Sportsman's Park in St. Louis. Detroit starters Hal Newhouser (14-15) and Stubby Overmire (10-4) received credit for the easy 11-2 and 10-1 wins. In the opener George Kell was 3-for-4 plus a walk with 1-R & 4-RBI while Roy Cullenbine solo homered (#19). Kell continued his hot hitting in the nightcap by going 2-for-5, both doubles, with 2-R & 3-RBI and back-up catcher Hal Wagner was 2-for-5 with a double and 4-RBI. Bob Muncrief (6-14) and Cliff Fannin (5-7) took the St. Louis losses with both Browns starters bombed off the mound after only 1-IP. The Tigers would return to Detroit the next day for another twinbill vs the Chicago White Sox. This time a Labor Day audience of 37,480 watched at Briggs Stadium and the Tigers swept the WSox 6-5 & 7-2. Reliever Johnny Gorsica (2-0) and starter Dizzy Trout (9-11) got the victories this time to give third place Detroit four wins in two days.  

    POW Award

    There was one special moment in an otherwise dismal 1-6 Tiger week for the period of August 24th--30th, 2015. Justin Verlander pitched a masterpiece, a 5-0 complete game shutout of the LA Angels at Comerica Park on AUG 26TH. JV carried a No-Hitter into the T-9th where Chris Iannetta led-off with a double that kicked-up chalk down the LField line. Verlander walked two (both erased on double plays) and posted nine strikeouts. Verlander's 21st career complete game was his seventh career shutout and second career CG 1-hitter. Verlander earned his first Player-Of-the-Week Award this year and 23rd POW Award overall.
