Tarik Skubal emphatically thanks Detroit Tigers fans

    We have all let our frustration get the best of us at some point in our life and that is exactly what happened to Tarik Skubal on Wednesday during the Detroit Tigers' walk-off win over the San Diego Padres.

    Skubal was clearly upset after an error in the fourth inning caused him to give up a couple of unearned runs and he took out his frustrations in the Tigers' dugout, nearly taking out rookie OF Riley Greene in the process.

    The error happened in the top of the fourth with one on and one out and San Diego Padres MVP candidate Manny Machado at the dish. Machado fouled off a pitch from Skubal that Tigers' 1B Harold Castro should have easily caught, but he didn't, giving Machado another chance.

    Following the game, Tarik Skubal spoke to reporters about his tirade in the dugout and he admitted that it was not a great choice.

    "It's good to let it out, I think," Tarik Skubal said. "But it's not good where I did it. Usually I go down the tunnel and that's where I'll get those frustrations out."

    Tigers manager A.J. Hinch said the dugout shook.

    "Could you feel it? Did the building shake? Because the dugout did," Hinch said.

    Skubal also had a shout-out to Tigers fans who came out to Comerica Park during the current homestand.

    "I would like to give a shoutout to our fans this homestand," Skubal said. "They were fucking phenomenal. Make sure you get that. It was a good environment. ... They were just there every game. The season hasn't gone the way we wanted it to, but they continue to show up."

    As far as trade rumors go, Tarik Skubal did not want to discuss it.

    "Yeah, yeah, you know, I'm not going to comment," Skubal said. "I won't. I'm going to keep those to myself. I'm sorry."
