Fri, 30 Sep 2016 19:31:20 EDTThe Tigers opened their season six months ago in Miami with postseason dreams, but without a designated hitter, since they were playing in a National League park. They are closing their regular-season schedule in a different city, but with the same predicament.
Fri, 30 Sep 2016 13:18:14 EDTThe Tigers and Indians waited all day Thursday for a chance to wrap up their series at Comerica Park. The rain never let up.

Wed, 28 Sep 2016 20:24:54 EDTThe lineup card posted on the door of the Tigers' clubhouse on Wednesday looked unusual. Separately, the names looked familiar. They just hadn't been seen together in order in a while.
Wed, 28 Sep 2016 03:04:49 EDTThe Indians' hangover from their American League Central title clincher Monday was a precursor to the onslaught from the Tigers, whose fight for a postseason berth rolls on. Miguel Cabrera and Justin Upton hit three-run home runs, part of a five-RBI game for Cabrera, as Justin Verlander tossed 7 2/3 scoreless innings in a 12-0 Tigers victory Tuesday night at Comerica Park.
Wed, 28 Sep 2016 01:33:45 EDTThe Tigers, with their season on the line, will turn back to Nick Castellanos to give them an offensive boost for the stretch run.

Wed, 28 Sep 2016 12:47:44 EDTThe Tigers are elite at squaring up barrels, yet they've found less production on them than any other offense in baseball. Why is that? Because their giant home outfield has swallowed up more of those high-value outs than anywhere else.
Wed, 28 Sep 2016 00:39:07 EDTNow comes the biggest challenge for the Tigers in their season-closing bid to claim one of the two American League Wild Card berths.

Tue, 27 Sep 2016 01:51:46 EDTWhile the Indians stormed the field at Comerica Park after the final out of Monday's 7-4 win, most of the Tigers filed down the dugout steps and into the clubhouse.

Tue, 27 Sep 2016 01:57:23 EDTThe eighth-inning ball down the right-field line that Tigers outfielder J.D.
