Im guessing Scherzer gets 22 Ks tonight.
OT: Tigers late night: 4/17
Tigers have never won against "King Felix"
Felix Hernandez, RHP
- 1-2, 3.05 ERA
- Last 3 starts
- Last 10 years vs. DET
- Last 5 years vs. DET hitters
Hm. Odd RE: the Wins total. The TV just showed he is 7-0 vs. our Tigers. I'll look more into that.
Anyone that hates a nightly Tigers thread can simply not click on it. It's that simple.
Pistons doing their best to make me completely hate them by extending this game...
click just to hate. I agree with your sentiment!
I watch the Pistons bottom line like a hawk, but haven't tuned into an actual game in 2 years I am sad to say. I'm not asking for Miami Heat status; I just want relevence. They are the Pirates of the NBA. And yet, I am a PISTONS fan for life.
Felix has 3 strike outs through one inning. Not bad
Close but no cigar for Victor, they moved the left field wall in at Safeco correct?
Ahh yes thanks! I know the Mariners have really had the Tigers number the past few years but it's kind of nice to see them actually have a decent roster for a change. Getting Morse and Morales really adds some depth to the lineup that they haven't had since the Edgar Martinez days, but they really need to young guys such as Ackely and Montero to live up to their billings to be a wildcard team but it's nice to see them field a competitive team.

Morse has helped some. Still not a single player is hitting over .300
This is a Team 96 in review video, by MGoBlueVideo, and it is the best youtube video I have ever seen.
I don't know how to inbed that into this comment, and I don't have enough points for this, but someone needs to make this a post thing on the side. Goosebumps, chills, tears (allergy season). It hits the whole emotional spectrum.
Go Blue. Team 96 baby.
EDIT: Just realized it already has been posted. It's just on page 2 now. Must have been posted when I took a 2 hour break from this page earlier today.
Derpty derpty derp derp
This act isn't cute.
4 SO so far for Felix. However, the Tigers are known for their adjustments. Hopefully Cabrera and others will see what is going on and hit some shots in the gap.
The Mariners obviously cannot hit, but they have been absolutely terrible when Felix is pitching. He never gets any run support.
Shouldn't there be an OT Red Wings board up? Fighting for a playoff spot against Calgary tonight.
Wings are down 1-0 after 1 period.
Looking like its going to be a good pitchers duel.
is nasty so far tonight.
Tigers just have great starting pitchers.
If only we could add the bullpen. Yes, first world problems and all. But I do want all of the pitchers and this all of the wins. Yup
for Scherzer so far.
So you're the one who blew it for Scherzer. Thanks a lot.
have a stream? I've checked firstrow and vipbox, but neither have working streams tonight.
Atta boy Scherzer. 3 straight Ks in the 3rd.
is killing it. Let's hope we can keep them at bay and get those bats going soon!
Both pitchers are just nastey tonight. Another K for King Felix, 6 total
Felix and Max are both dealing right now, unfortunately for us Felix has less than 50 pitches thru 4....yuck.
is turning into quite the battle. Great pitching on both ends!
Wooo small ball scores a run!
What would you take? I'm 52% serious.
I will take the under at 34
30 strike outs through 10 innings.
Wow, maybe I should set lines for a living.
I initially thought that V-Mart got a hit. I would have to see it again but that is a tough error.
as Seattle was stinging the ball a little more that inning. Tigers turned a DP thanks in part to a very slow-running Smoak giving Infante plenty of time to make the relay. 95+% of MLB hitters would have beat that relay.
Back to back Golden Sombreros for Fielder.
Clutch pitching by Coke right there.
Omar Infante saves the day and Coke comes back with a nice strikeout, free baseball from here on out.
That was a nice play by Infante, but the strike out of Smoak was to be expected.
I have seen quite a bit of Michigan gear at the game tonight. Nice to see the love in Seattle
Villarreal is terrible so far this year. Can't throw strikes
Questionable decision by Leyland to send out Brayan, I guess this might be his last chance to sink or swim, if he blows it he better be on the first plane to Toledo.
despite Villareal's wildness. Good stuff does no good if you can't find the plate. Send him packing!
33 strike outs combined tonight thus far.
V-mart can't buy one!
SO far: 38 Ks total for both team 5 short of the AL record, 43 (only 2 behind the NL record of 40 FWIW). Prince has a Platinum Sombrero and Jackson has a Golden Sombrero.
On to the top of the 14th
can't go to bed now, right? I hate west coast games
...as I was going to give up on the game 20 minutes or so ago when I lost my DTV signal due to heavy rain, but right as I was heading to bed the signal came back and now I'm watching again.
Now its up to each of us to upvote anyone willing to tough it out past 2AM....
crazy people...errr, I mean devoted fans have to stay together right
I was there for the first 12. But takes an hour to get home and my son has school today so had to leave.
Take the lead 2 - 1 !!!
Bases-loaded ground-out by Pena drives in the go-ahead run...
Hopefully Smyly can close this one out!
Check that, they went with Benoit.
if Benoit blows this...
Big collision at the plate but Pena holds on!
Holy shit play at the plate to win it! Pena held on after a collision at home. Tigers win. What a finish.
Tigers Win...I...I just...whatever *faceplants keyboard*
Play at the plate for the win!
Benoit gets the 1st out on a pop-up, but the next hitter (Smoat) singles. Then an infield pop-out to Miggy, but then...double to the corner, ball is relayed in by Torii Hunter to Prince, who fires it (not a strike but up the 3rd base line) to Pena, who has the ball in plenty of time to brace for a collision by Smoat, the big, slow-footed 1B of the Mariners. Pena made the tag and held on but gave us a scare by laying there quivering on the ground for nearly a minute...
Good recap, but it's Smoak.
Also Pena wins the most awesome celebration ever with his fist pump holding the baseball after getting decked and still laying on the field.
Well I woke up to Rod Allen yelling at Torii to get the ball in, so I at least saw the final play. Good game, good win, hope JV goes 8 tomorrow afternoon.
Fielder displayed the worst two-day display of batting ever. Literally, I believe.
0-11 with 9 Ks so far. Yeesh.
Quite the display of relief pitching in addition to Scherzer. Ought to silence some of the naysayers for at least a little while. And how about Peña???
I remember last year when we seemed to always lose extra inning games.
I got to celebrate when they showed the highlights on sports center this morning at the gym.
