    Great game -- after the first inning. The home plate umpire was taking a lot of heat from both benches for a questionable strike zone that seemed to really rattle the Dodgers starter. Mattingly got tossed later in the game. I think he was pissed after an early call that allowed Hunter a double after a poor tag following a great throw from Puig. Puig is like Dave Parker or Roberto Clemente out there with his arm. The reverse call (which was clearly the right call) on Hunter's double was crucial because it allowed the Tigers to continue with a big inning where they collected eight hits.

    A few observations: Despite Verlander turning it around, he did not seem ready to pitch when he walked out there. This is from the Detroit Free Press story:

    Is how Verlander pitched after the first inning how he wants to pitch with those new mechanics?

    “Closer,” he said.

    How will he know when he’s there?

    “When I start not having to work at it,” he said. “When it comes easy.”

    Miggy had a triple, which is about as rare an occurrence as a lunar eclipse.

    What to do with Austin Jackson? He's not a leadoff hitter. He belongs at the bottom of the lineup.

    JV is clearly a PistonsForum subscriber. During the long bottom of the second, he had out the Smart phone.

    14 runs/20 hits off a tough Lefty and WITHOUT Victor martinez!! Like i said HITTING aint the issue. With our starters 3 RUNS a game should be enough!

    Verlander got saved by the hitting!! Cmon starters - STEP UP!

    If I could back and rewrite that first post, I would have said he had absolutely NO COMMAND in the first inning. The dude did not look ready to pitch.

    The Dodgers could not agree with the local cable or satellite companies, so no one in SoCal is getting any Dodger games unless they subscribe to MLBTV and we are almost at the halfway thru the season.

    The MLB network had the game blocked out last night and now they have done the same today.....I guess that would be my lone complaint with direct TV. I was able to watch Tigers live on Fox Sports Detroit until until 9:59 AM and then it went blank...so I am listening on my internet radio channel

    Tigers get a good win WITHOUT Cabrera and Vic!!!!! Should have gave avila the day off as well.

    Tigers recipe: 4 runs, Great starting pitching, 6 straight outs from Joba and Nathan.

    THATS how you win a World Series: SEND a message to the NL's best team against their #2 and #3 pitchers and letting their best player DH while RESTING our two best players!!

    Beer me!

    Funny how this team can sweep a first place team Dodgers and fall 1-3 to a last place team in Rays?? well the Rays have been hot so will give them pass there. The most important thing is that our two CYA winners won their two games and we go into the series with the team that is trailing us (Royals) leading by five.

    Mad Max was great today. Hopefully, Verlander was watching to see what command looks like. Big series win for Detroit at home, where they have not played particularly well this season, just 25-22. Tigers were damn lucky to miss Kershaw.

    My 5 run rule would've been a waste on that 14-5 job. They only wasted 4 runs. Need to send a mess !
    Tigs still hit for JV
    Put the Zubras back on.

    I remember decades back, we had a team that put up about 20 runs maybe 3 times in the space of a month. And everyone was saying this is the most awesome MLB offense ever. They didn't even make the P/Os.
    This offense is the most awesome ever and it will make the P/Os ! enjoy peepa's

    His production has been unexpected and huge. Suarez has been a nice surprise, too.
