MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The Detroit Tigers had to change their starting pitcher for their game at Minnesota after a mix-up with Jacob Turner.
The Tigers had planned to go with Turner, but the right-hander hadn't met a required 10-day waiting period since being designated for assignment on Aug. 10.
Instead, Detroit recalled left-hander Daniel Stumpf from Triple-A Toledo on Sunday and Buck Farmer made his first start of the season. Farmer went 5-5 with a 6.75 ERA in 11 starts for the Tigers last year.
OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Ramon Laureano reached his hands out to each side and knew he had his first major league hit at last, a big one at that to end the game.
Laureano somehow forced himself to relax with the game on the line and two outs in the 13th inning, having already failed at the plate four times in his big league debut.
He came through this time as he singled home the winning run for his first major league hit, sending the Oakland Athletics past the Detroit Tigers 1-0 on Friday night.
DETROIT (AP) — Buck Farmer kept throwing changeups to Mike Moustakas, and the Kansas City slugger eventually adjusted.
"After the first three or four, I was starting sitting on it," Moustakas said. "Finally, he ended up leaving one up, and I was able to get a good swing on it."
Moustakas hit a tiebreaking, three-run homer in the seventh inning, and the Kansas City Royals outlasted the Detroit Tigers 8-5 on Sunday to earn a split of their four-game series.
NEW YORK (AP) — Major League Baseball has ruled that the Detroit Tigers did not intend to throw a pitch that struck the plate umpire in the shoulder and knocked him to the ground.
MLB said Friday that Chief Baseball Officer Joe Torre reviewed the play and found no wrongdoing and no cause for disciplinary action.
CLEVELAND (AP) — Making history almost every time they take the field, the Cleveland Indians won their 21st straight game on Wednesday, 5-3 over the Detroit Tigers, to set an American League record and join only two other teams in the past 101 years to win that many in a row.
CLEVELAND (AP) — For more than 100 years, American League teams have gone on winning streaks of varying lengths — short ones, long ones, double-digit ones.
Nothing, though, like the one the Cleveland Indians have pieced together.
A streak for the ages.
Moving past the "Moneyball" Oakland Athletics, the Indians set the AL record with their 21st straight win on Wednesday, 5-3 over the Detroit Tigers, to join only two other teams in the past 101 years to win that many consecutive games.
DETROIT (AP) — Buck Farmer made his big league debut nearly three years ago but has never pitched well enough to hold down a consistent spot in Detroit's rotation.
The Tigers hope he's finally ready to make a significant contribution.
CHICAGO (AP) — The first game of a doubleheader between the Detroit Tigers and Chicago White Sox has been postponed because of rain.
The start of Friday's second game was delayed 1 hour, 25 minutes.
It was baseball's 26th postponement, one more than all of last season, according to Major League Baseball. Detroit and Chicago will make up the rainout on Saturday as part of a doubleheader starting at 1:10 p.m. The second game will begin shortly after the opener ends.
DETROIT (AP) — Jordan Zimmermann is set to pitch Friday night for the playoff-chasing Detroit Tigers in what would be his first start in nearly three weeks.
Zimmermann has been trying to regain his effectiveness after missing significant time with neck issues. He allowed six runs in one inning Sept. 10 in his most recent start. The right-hander has pitched only once since then, allowing a run in three relief innings this past Sunday.
DETROIT (AP) — The Detroit Tigers have been losing to Cleveland all season, so it was fitting that the Indians celebrated their AL Central title at Comerica Park.
It's hard to explain the one-sided nature of this series this year. All the Tigers know is that they'll be in real trouble if it doesn't change soon.
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The Detroit Tigers gained ground in the American League wild card race on Wednesday night, even though they were rained out in Minnesota.
Thursday's doubleheader gives Detroit another big opportunity to climb in the wild card standings.
Wednesday's game was delayed by rain in the bottom of the third inning with the two teams scoreless and was postponed 90 minutes later leading to a split doubleheader on Thursday.
