    You have to wonder why JL would bring in Papa after last lights shaky performance and have him teased the crowd with another inning of shaky pitching??

    Tigers win 6-4 and he gets another save , but geez

    Good outing by Porcello and the Tigers move 8 games over .500 and move out to a 4.5 game lead over the Indians

    I blame Jim Leyland.

    I like his quicker release. His form and follow through reminds me a lot of Greg Maddox. We have to be better defensive;y behind him. 4 infield blunders yesterday. Also, why Leyland never pinch runs for Victor in late innings astonishes me. Jackson out of the lineup really shifts the dramatic for this team. I really hope Garcia stays with the team when he returns. We need that Gibsontype player on this roster. Did u see his two catches yesterday?? Hold the fort down, Torii, your heir apparent is watching.

    I thought Valverde was very solid. If Infante doesn't drop the pop-up, it might have been a 1-2-3 inning. Valverde had great control and was mixing up his pitches. I'm not sure if he is the answer heading into a World Series, but he can be very good still.

    n his Major League debut, Alvarez (1-0) only gave up three hits and one run while striking out seven. He became the first Tigers starting pitcher to earn a win in his debut since 2009....without looking it up, CAN anyone name that pitcher??? I havent looked it up yet but Im gonna say Drew Smyly.

    I thought Smyly was still in Jr. High in 2009.

    You have to wonder if Alveraz had thrown a no hitter, would have been kept on the A squad as a possible long reliever or still sent back to the minors after a slam, bam thank you man?? Probably sent back to get more experience...... Then again since he so green, would he have been left in there for complete game no hit shut out or pulled by JL to rest his arm even with a no-no in play?

    Things that make you go hmmmm????

    He would have been pulled. Combined no hitters arent that rare, Remeber Blue Moon Odom's? I think Oakland used 4 pitchers that day.

    I think Leyland would have went by pitch count. Alveraz threw 69 pitches in the first 5 innings. The 6th inning was taxing, as he threw 24 pitches to put him up to 93 after 6 innings. He would have needed some quick innings (10 pitches or less) in innings 6, 7, 8 and 9 to survive the Leyland hook.

    We are 6-10 in one run games this year. The only team in MLB with less W's in one runners is Philly with 5. However, only 4 teams have less one run games total, which means that we have 29 wins by 2 or more runs compared to 17 losses by 2 or more.

    With such a small set, luck may be a big part of it. However, dominating closers allow for more 1 run victories when you can put them in when needed to freeze out an opponent.

    Another good starting pitching performance which makes it something like 17 out of our last 18 starts meeting the criteria of a "quality" start. The opposing pitcher was pretty good too though.

    Fister must feel that he is back in Seattle ala 2011, as he is winless in his last five starts; and the Tigers have scored four runs combined in his last four starts.

    One again the bats were there, but not able to muster anything after the 3rd inning so once again nothing happening in the second half of the game. Every time we got a man on base either Garcia, or Avila seem to ground into a force out....even Miggy struck out in the sixth with two on.

    Tough loss for Fister, that's all. He doesn't strike out many and doesn't give up HR's. So, he gets them to put the ball in play and relies on the defense more than our other pitchers. The run support for him has been unlucky, but with a limited defense, his style also plays a role. He might be a much better pitcher on another team (not that we should dream of trading him).
