PAXTON TAMES TIGERS.....W, 4/26/17

>>caption:  JAMES PAXTON (#65)
SHUT DOWN THE BENGAL BATS<<

@ COMERICA PARK:

    The Tigers had 24 hits and
scored 19 runs vs the Mariners
Tuesday night.

    Wednesday night, Detroit
managed only four safeties and
failed to score for the first time this year in an 8-0 defeat.

    The main reason was M's starter James Paxton.  The LHander allowed
4-H & 1-W with 9-K in his 7-IP.  Paxton (W, 3-0) lowered his early season
ERA to just 1.39.  Paxton threw 103-pitches/66-strikes.

    Paxton's one serious threat was in the B-2nd when Victor Martinez
led-off with a single and raced to third on a one-out John Hicks double
to RCField.  A James McCann strikeout and Dixon Machado groundout
ended the inning.

    Nick Vincent pitched a perfect B-8th with 1-K and Edwin Diaz walked
a batter in the B-9th to finish out the combined shutout.

  • Fan Fact

    APRIL 27, 2016:     J.D. Martinez and Victor Martinez each belted 3-run homeruns in a 9-4 Tiger home win over Oakland.  J.D. sent a 419-foot 3rHR (#3) into the RCField seats to cap a 4-R/B-2nd and later added a sac-fly and a double for 2-R & 4-RBI.  V-Mart's 3rHR (#4) to the RField stands in the B-6th gave Detroit an 8-1 lead.  The big blow of the night was a T-4th lead-off homer by Oakland's Khris Davis (#3) that traveled 449-feet and bounced off the railing atop the CField brick wall in front of the Al Kaline statue.  Davis also tripled and scored in the T-8th.  Justin Verlander earned the win (2-2), allowing only 2-H & 2-W with 6-K through 6-IP, but tiring in the T-7th when he retired just one of three A's and getting charged with 2-R.  Fifth Tiger hurler Francisco Rodriguez worked a perfect T-9th with 2-K.  Athletics starter Sonny Gray suffered the loss (3-2), coming out after throwing 40-pitches in the 4-R/B-2nd.      


    POW Award

    JOHN HICKS
    Wielding the hottest stick for 3A Toledo (a .424-BA with 12-RBI), Hicks caught a 3:45am flight out of Pennsylvania's Lehigh Valley to join the Tigers for a 2:10pm (Detroit time) Minnesota matinee on APR 22ND when Miguel Cabrera was DLed.  Although he'd been catching with the Mud Hens, Hicks took over at 1Base for Cabrera and went 2-for-5 with a double and an RBI in a 5-3 win over the Twins.  The next day Hicks was Miggy-like, providing key blows in a 13-4 thrashing of the Twins.  Hicks' 2-run single capped a 5-R/T-3rd that blew the game open.  His first big league homer was a 3-run/T-9th blast to the LField bleachers that concluded the scoring.  For the day Hicks was 3-for-5 with 2-R & 5-RBI.  For the two weekend wins that ended a 4-game Tiger losing skid, Hicks went 5-for-10 (.500-BA) with 2-XBH, 2-R & 6-RBI.  His .500-BA in three Tiger games (including one September contest last year) is a sharp contrast to the .063 he hit in 17 games for Seattle in his previous MLB experience during 2015.   Hicks is our Player-Of-the-Week for the period of April 17th--23rd, 2017, his first POW Award.
