Miami righthander Edinson Volquez no hits Arizona in a 3-0 win using a combination of offspeed pitches and the fastball.  A diving stop by Dee Gordon in the fourth was the closest Arizona came to getting a hit.  Volquez walked two batters in facing the minimum of 27 and struck out the side in the ninth on low change ups out of the strike zone.  Both Diamondback runners were erased by doubleplays.

The Tigers are almost washed up. They tried to trade a few big name players last off-season, but there were no takers. I fully expect the Indians to take over soon. The biggest surprise for me so far are the Minnesota Twins. The Tigers have wasted all the talent they have on bad relief pitching. And Verlander is in a clear state of decline. Fulmer is the only truly dependable starter they have right now. Some of the younger players on the Tigers are getting more playing time, such as Dixon Machado and Jacoby Jones. At the present time, if the Tigers were to hold a fire sale, the guys I would build the team around are Fulmer, Jones, JD Martinez, Justin Wilson and Jose Iglesias.

Detroit 7 Chicago 4.  Defensive mistakes, missed chances for additional scoring, and poor execution by the White Sox give Detroit a three game sweep.  Chicago left the bases loaded in the first, with a run in, and the second, had a runner caught stealing second in the third a runner picked off first in the fifth inning with runners at first and third.  There was also a failure to execute a safety squeeze bunt in the eighth after three doubles tied the game.  A fielding mistake and two base throwing error on a pickoff at first led to three runs. A potential doubleplay ball was booted in the ninth and Yolmer Sanchez could only get the out at first base.  That led to a hanging curveball to Justin Upton that landed 20 rows in the left field seats for a walkoff three run shot.  Detroit, for its part, was able to advance the base runners.  Alert baserunning in the sixth by John Hicks resulted in a stolen base when the thirdbaseman was attempting to cover an attempted sacrifice bunt. 

There was also solid relief pitching after Justin Verlander was pulled due to a tight right groin.  Chicago also hit into a doubleplay in the ninth after getting two runners on.

Los Angeles Angels 5 Detroit 3.  Infield play by the Angels the longball, misplays in the outfield by Detroit, and missed chances give Los Angeles the win.  An erratic Daniel Norris was reached for four runs, three earned, on five hits in six innings of work.  A fastball over the plate and a hanging slider resulted in three runs.  Alex Pressley misplayed a flyball into a double in the fourth and booted a single in the sixth that allowed a runner to score from first base.  Detroit missed a chance for further scoring in the sixth when Nick Castellanos grounded out with runners at the corners.  Alex Avila struck out with the bases loaded in the ninth to end the game.

Los Angeles Angels 11 Detroit 4.  Michael Fulmer fails to adjust to hitters allowing them to sit on the fastball in a four run fourth and was yanked after allowing the first five batters to reach base and getting only one out.  Only a diving catch in center field by Andrew Romine kept the inning from being any worse.  The bullpen put pitches over the plate in a six run seventh.

Boston 5 Detroit 3.  Bullpen falters once again as Alex Wilson leaves a fastball over the plate to Jackie Bradley in the eighth inning to complete a three run rally.  Wilson also contributed a throwing error on a pick off attempt.  Detroit also left runners stranded in missing chances for additional scoring.

Boston 11 Detroit 3.  Detroit's bullpen continues to get shelled leaving pitches over the plate.  Justin Verlander lasted only five innings as he would have trouble finishing off hitters.  Red Sox hitters managed to foul off numerous pitches running the pitched to 108.  Defensive plays helped keep Detroit off the scoreboard.

Arizona 2 Detroit 1.  Taijuan Walker combines with two relievers to shut down Detroit on one run on seven hits.  Detroit hitters had difficulty catching up with Walker's fastball.  A defensive mistake in the first inning led to the first of two Arizona runs.  Justin Upton misplayed a single by Gregor Blanco into a two base error allowing Blanco to reach third where scored on a sacrifice fly.  Upton cut down Chris Owings at the plate to end the inning.  Detroit also missed chances in the fourth and fifth innings and did nothing against Arizona's bullpen.

Detroit 5 Tampa Bay 3.  Miguel Cabrera sends a high fastball into the right field seats for a walkoff two run homer in the bottom of the ninth.  Detroit also benefited from a fielding error in the seventh for an unearned run.  Tampa also failed to take advantage of five walks by Justin Verlander in going 0 for 7 with runners in scoring position and stranding nine runners.

Detroit 13 Tampa Bay 4.  Detroit sends nine batters to the plate in the fourth and fifth innings for five innings.  A throwing error by Tim Beckham allowed two runs in the fifth.  Defensive plays helped keep Tampa Bay in check - two doubleplays, a leaping grab at the left field fence, a over the shoulder catch by shortstop Jose Iglesias, and an alert throw home by Alex Avila cut down a runner who tried to score on an attempted pickoff at first.

Tampa Bay 3 Detroit 2.  Tampa Bay takes advantage of four walks by Michael Fulmer, one which came around to score in two run seventh inning.  The Devil Rays were able to advance a runner with groundball outs in that inning.  Detroit on three occasions failed to score a runner from third and missed two other chances.

Tampa Bay 9 Detroit 1.  Detroit pitchers had difficulty keeping horsehides in the ballpark as five mistakes accounted for all nine Tampa Bay runs.  Buck Farmer surrendered three of them as he failed to get out of the third for the second straight time.  Detroit hitters had trouble with a combination of fastballs and changeups from Jake Faria in getting one run on only six hits.

Seattle 6 Detroit 2.  For the second straight game, the gopher ball accounts for the opposing team's scoring.  Detroit also missed a chance in the sixth inning with the score tied at 2-2.  The pitching has allowed a major league third worst .273 batting average.

Seattle 5 Detroit 4, 10 innings.  Bullpen is once unable to get the job done as Justin Wilson leaves a cut fastball over the plate to Kyle Seager who lined it into right field for a game winning double.  The winning run was a batter Wilson walked and put into scoring position with a wild pitch.  Detroit had a three home runs, but all came with the bases empty and were able to do little else between the third and eighth innings.

Seattle 7 Detroit 5.  Seattle capitalizes on poor relief pitching after Justin Verlander took a perfect game into the sixth inning.  Shane Greene put pitches over the plate in a four run Seattle seventh after they had score three in the sixth.  The Mariners also turned two double plays.
