  • Fan Fact

    MAY 23, 2016:     The Tigers hit four solo homers including two by red-hot Miguel Cabrera, but it was Miggy's 500th MLB career double followed by a Victor Martinez RBI single in the B-7th that snapped a 4-all tie and gave Detroit a 5-4 home win vs Philadelphia.  The Tigers won for the 7th time in eight games to coincide with Cabrera's offensive spurt that saw him hit seven homers in a 17-for-33 surge. Cabrera was 3-for-3 plus a walk in this game.  Cabrera clubbed a 2-out/B-3rd homer (#10) to RField to tie the game 1-1 and added another dinger (#11) to LField for a 3-3 tie during a B-5th power surge where Detroit hit three homeruns in the span of four batters.  The 3-4-5 Tiger hitters of Cabrera, Victor Martinez and Nick Castellanos went a combined 8-for-10 plus 2-W to reach base 10 times in 12 plate appearances.  After J.D. Martinez (#10) and Cabrera blasted back-to-back, nobody out longballs to chase Phillies starter Vince Velasquez, reliever Colton Murphy (L, 0-1) came in to retire Victor Martinez before Castellanos also soloed (#9) for a 4-3/B-5th Tiger advantage.  The Phils homered twice with a T-4th lead-off shot by Maikel Franco (#8) for a 2-1 visitors lead and a 1-out, T-6th solo blast by Tommy Joseph (#2) that deadlocked the contest 4-all.  All four Phillies runs came off Detroit starter Mike Pelfrey who remained winless in nine starts (4-L in April, 5-ND in May).  First Tiger reliever Justin Wilson tossed the T-7th to earn his first Detroit victory (1-1).  Mark Lowe worked a scoreless T-8th.  Francisco Rodriguez worked a perfect T-9th with 2-K for his AL-leading 13th save.    


    POW Award

    J.D. MARTINEZ
    After missing the season's first 33 games with a foot injury, the return of J.D. Martinez has sparked an upturn in Detroit Tiger offense.  J.D.'s four homer homestand helped the Tigers to a 3-3 mark during the period of May 15th--21st, 2017.  Martinez went 7-for-18 (.389-BA) with his 4-HR, 7-R & 9-RBI plus 10 walks (.607-PBP) in the six games.  J.D. earned his first Player-Of-the-Week Award this year and ninth overall POW Award.
