Playing Catch Up

Posted by sharris2929 on July 10, 2012

It’s been a little busy here at the Tiger Den, and we sincerely apologize for going so long between posts.  In an attempt to catch you up on all things Tigers, here are a few news items from the past couple of weeks.  We promise that after today, we’ll be more timely and give each game and news item more attention.

  • Back on 6/24, the Tigers fell to the Red Sox 15-9, losing consecutive games for the first time this season.  The Tigers once had a 8-5 lead, but the Red Sox went on a tear and put the game out of reach in the late innings
  • The Tigers conducted their team All Star voting, and selected Dan Titus and Dennis McGarel to represent the Tigers at this year’s all star game.  However, Dennis will be unable to attend the game, so the third place finisher Jeff Nelson will take his place.  Hearty congratulations to Dan, Dennis, and Jeff. 
  • After celebrating our nation’s birthday, the Tigers let off some fireworks of their own, taking down the Brewers 15-3 on July 5th.  Dave Purkey pitched a terrific game to pick up the win, and newcoming knuckleballer Ryan Early pitched the final three frames to pick up his first save. 
  • After 9 games, the Tigers find themselves at 6-3, tied for second place with the Red Sox.  The Tigers and Red Sox will meet tonight at 7 pm, with second place on the line.

Please check back soon for a return to our in depth reporting style.
