Tigers Roundup: Tigers Dominate, Nathan Donates, and Schedule Change

After a big, crazy, Monday in downtown Detroit, the city has returned to a quieter scene. That will not last long though as the Tigers take on the Royals in the second game of their big three game series.

The Tigers struck early and often in their game against the Royals yesterday. The big difference ended up being the eight run third inning that the Tigers were able to use en route to a 9-5 victory. The Tigers did not score a bunch tonight as they did yesterday, but they were able to use good pitching and timely hitting to cruise to a 4-2 victory over the Royals.

The Tigers are now 11-4 against the Royals this year. They have outscored the Royals by a 85-52 margin in those games. After today, the Tigers and Royals have four games remaining. If the Tigers are able to take care of business in those four games, there should be no reason that they can’t win the division.


The Tigers and Royals game on September 20th has been moved from 7:10 PM to 1:10 PM.

Speaking of the division, the Tigers now are tied with the Royals for first place in the AL Central. The Royals have a game in hand on the Tigers, and still have to finish a game in which they trail 4-2 in the bottom of the 10th inning against Cleveland.

Joe Nathan has been in negative lime light since he was seen gesturing fans in a negative way. Nathan has been doing solid work since then, and will also make another positive approach when he donates a check for $50,000 to the Detroit fire department. The money will be used to help buy equipment and supplies.

  1. I was really pissed off at Nathan for doing that, and how he shrugged it off and basically said the fans don’t know what they’re talking about when they say he is sucking. Since then, he’s really tried hard to show he was actually sincere about his apology. In a day and age when people (especially celebrities) are only sorry because they got caught doing or saying something stupid, this is a breath of fresh air. Yeah, Joe isn’t pitching 10 pitch, perfect 9th innings, but he’s been much better, and I’m really glad to see it. We need him to do great in order to win, but most importantly, he realized he needs US fans to morally support him. I think he’s doing his job for the team and the fans, and not just for himself, and it has showed in his performances of late.
