  • Fan Fact

    AUGUST 29, 2007:     Tony Pena Jr's 2r1B capped a 5-R/B-1st, enough to carry the Royals to a 5-0 win over the Tigers at Kansas City. Mark Grudzielanek went 3-for-4 with a 2B, R & RBI for KayCee. Ryan Braun got the win (2-0) and David Riske the save (#4) for the Royals. Tiger LHP Andrew Miller yielded all 5-R in just 0.2-IP, the shortest starting stint of his brief MLB career for the loss (5-5). Detroit dropped to four and a half games behind AL-Central leading Cleveland and stayed four behind AL-Wildcard leader Seattle.  


    POW Award

    VICTOR MARTINEZ
    V-Mart's hot August bat produced 11-RBIs during a 4-3 Tiger road trip the week of August 18th--24th, 2014. Martinez had 5-RBIs including a mammoth Grand Slam homer in a 6-0 win at Tampa Bay on AUG 20TH. Martinez capped the road swing with 4-RBIs in a 13-4 win at Minnesota AUG 24TH where his off-the-wall run-scoring single put the Tigers ahead to stay 4-3 and then he added a 2rHR (#25 to tie his single season career-high set in 2007 with Cleveland). Victor had four multi-hit games with two 3-H contests in the two wins at Minnesota to go 10-for-28 (.357-BA) on the week and added five walks (.455-OBP) as he reached base safely in all seven contests. Martinez earned his second Player-Of-the-Week (POW) Award in three weeks, his fourth of the year and his seventh overall.
