JV SUPER & GETS BENGAL BAT SUPPORT.....S, 8/20/17

>>caption:  VINTAGE VERLANDER<<

@ COMERICA PARK:

    Justin Verlander flashed "Ace"
stuff to halt a 6-game Tiger losing
streak and Detroit salvaged the
final game of its 3-game weekend
set with the Los Angeles Dodgers
by a 6-1 score Sunday afternoon.

    Both starters, JV and LA's Kenta Maeda, carried no-hitters into the
6th-INN.  The only baserunner for either side at that point was Yasiel
Puig, who drew a 3-2 pitch, 1-out walk off Verlander in the T-5th.

    In his second game with the Dodgers, onetime Tiger Curtis Granderson
broke the spell with a 2-out/T-6th homer (#20) off the RField foul pole
for the first hit and run of the game.

    Maeda retired the first 15 Tigers he faced, but had only gone beyond
5-IP in his previous 19 starts four times this year and it all caved in on him
as soon as the B-6th began.

    John Hicks led-off the B-6th with a single and Andrew Romine doubled
Hicks to 3B...   [ Read More... ]

  • Fan Fact

    AUGUST 21, 2013:     The Tigers topped the Twins 7-1 at Comerica Park. Torii Hunter gave the Tigers a 21-1/B-7th lead with a 2-out, 2-run double. Hunter then scored from 2Base on a Prince Fielder strikeout when Minnesota CA Ryan Doumit committed a third strike passed ball, Fielder reached base ahead of Doumit's wide throw and nobody covered the plate when Doumit chased the ball near the visitors dugout. Victor Martinez then added an RBI double in the 4-R/B-7th. Miguel Cabrera cleared the bases with a 3-run double in the B-8th. Starting pitchers Anibal Sanchez of Detroit and Kevin Correia (L, 8-10) of the Twins matched zeroes through 6-INN. The Twins finally broke through in the T-7th when Pedro Florimon drew a 2-out walk, stole second and came home on Brian Dozier's up-the- middle single. Drew Smyly, who replaced Sanchez, got credit for the win and ran his record to 5-0. Smyly retired all three Twins he faced with 2-K. Third Tiger hurler Jose Veras recorded the last four outs (2-K) in perfect fashion to earn the save, his 20th of the season and first for Detroit.    


    POW Award

    JUSTIN UPTON
    Another fading Tiger week produced a 1-5 record where half the games were played on the road and half at home.  However, LFielder Justin Upton sparkled in most of them.  Although they'd lose all three games at Texas, Upton got the trip off to a hot start with an AUG 14TH T-1st 2rHR that traveled 444-feet to CField at the Arlington ballpark.  Once back at Comerica Park, Upton went 4-for-5 with two homers, a double and single with 3-R & 3-RBI in an 8-5 loss to the LA Dodgers on AUG 18TH.  When Detroit finally finished the week with a win, Upton banged a 2rHR (#26) off the LField foul pole in a 6-1 victory vs Los Angeles on AUG 20TH.  For the period of August 14th--20th, 2017 Upton went 7-for-22 (.318-BA) with a double, four homeruns, 5-R & 7-RBI and 3-W (.400-OBP).  Upton earned his third Player-Of-the-Week Award this year and fifth overall.
