5 Stats from the Detroit Tigers 7-6 Loss to the Chicago White Sox

  • Four

The number of RBI by designated hitter Victor Martinez. V-Mart only had nine RBI on the season entering the game, and had only totaled more than a single RBI once. Wednesday’s showing was an encouraging sign for Martinez as he showed signs of breaking out of his slump at the dish.

  • Zero

The number of runs allowed by Al Alburquerque, Tom Gorzelanny and Angel Nesbitt in a combined two innings of work. The trio seem to be among manager’s Brad Ausmus’ preferred pitchers out of the bullpen.

  • Six

The number of hits allowed in 0.2 innings pitched by Joba Chamberlain. The former Yankee took the loss while allowing four runs (all earned).

  • One

The number of home runs by Victor Martinez—yet another positive sign for the Detroit DH.

  • Three

The number of hits by Tigers catcher James McCann. McCann went three-for-five with two strikeouts on the day. If he continues to turn in displays like this, he’ll start to take more at-bats away from Alex Avila.

Seven Stats to Know from the Detroit Tigers’ 2-1 Win over the Kansas City Royals

Because I missed the last game, I decided to offer up more stats. Here’s the numbers to know from the Tigers’ 2-1 win over the Royals.

  • Three

The number of hits by leadoff hitter Anthony Gose. While Devon Travis (who Gose was traded for) continues to rake in Toronto, Gose is doing some hitting of his own in Motown. The centerfielder raised his average to .322 after the three-hit effort.

  • Two

The number of hits by Ian Kinsler and Yoenis Cespedes. The duo, along with Gose, were the only Tigers with hits.

  • Seven

The number of hits by the Tigers. Gose, Kinsler and Cespedes were the only Detroit batters with hits.

  • Zero

The number of hits by Tigers designated hitter Victor Martinez. V-Mart isn’t 100% and as such is hitting .208 on the season.

  • Nine

The number of innings thrown by David Price. The Detroit ace continues to impress after a rough outing versus the Yankees. His ERA on the season is 2.93.

  • Five

The number of hits surrendered by Price. He only allowed one run and struck out three without walking a batter.

  • Four

The number of strikeouts by Tigers hitters. For as much as they failed to score runs, they still managed to put the ball in play a good deal. The team also drew a collective three walks. Rajai Davis, Miguel Cabrera and Nick Castellanos all had free passes.

5 Stats from the Detroit Tigers 8-1 Loss to the Kansas City Royals

  • Six

The number of runs allowed by Tigers starter Alfredo Simon. The righty also struck out six while allowing nine hits. It was his first loss of the season.

  • Two

The number of hits by Victor Martinez. V-Mart was the only Tiger with multiple hits. It was only his fourth multi-hit game of the season.

  • 10

The number of strikeouts by Detroit hitters. J.D. Martinez led the way with three while Yoenis Cespedes and Nick Castellanos each had two. James McCann, Rajai Davis and Miguel Cabrera each had one.

  • Zero

The number of runs allowed by Al Alburquerque and Angel Nesbitt in relief. Both threw scoreless innings. It was a particularly encouraging sign for Albuquerque due to some early struggles. He allowed seven runs over three innings in two blowout losses to Cleveland and New York. This was his second scoreless outing so it seems that the reliever is turning things around.

  • One

The number of runs scored by the Tigers. The lone run came on a Rajai Davis single which scored Jose Iglesias, who had tripled.

5 Stats to Know from the Detroit Tigers’ 5-4 Win over the Minnesota Twins

Jose Iglesias’ batting average after the game. The slick-fielding shortstop has been super with the bat this season. He went 3-for-5 with a run scored and a run driven in. He went yard (his first of the season) and finished a double short of the cycle.

  • Six

The number of walks drawn by the Tigers, easily outweighing the team’s collective three strikeouts. Miguel Cabrera, Victor Martinez, J.D. Martinez and Alex Avila all had a walk each. Anthony Gose drew two free passes.

  • Nine

The number of runs scored by the Tigers in a 9-1 win over the White Sox on Sunday, April 19th. The Tigers have struggled to score runs lately with their nine run outburst against Chicago being the only time in nearly two weeks that Detroit has managed more than four runs per game. In four games against the Yankees, the Tigers run scoring output was the following– 2, 2, 4 and 1.

  • Zero

The number of runs allowed by reliever Joba Chamberlain. The former Yankee continues to look sharp early in the season with just four hits and zero walks allowed in five appearances.

The number of strikeouts by Tigers starter Anibal Sanchez, who looked more himself after two rough outings against the Pirates and White Sox. Sanchez allowed one hit, one run and four walks over 6.1 innings.

5 Stats from the Detroit Tigers 5-2 Loss to the New York Yankees

  • Three

The number of hits by Tigers’ right fielder J.D. Martinez. Martinez went 3-for-4 with two runs scored in the loss. He also struck out once. His three hit day raised his average to .281.

  • Two

The number of hits by both Alex Avila and Anthony Gose. Two of the less heralded members of the Tigers lineup stepped up big time, but their efforts weren’t enough as Detroit suffered only its third loss of the season.

  • 0

The number of hits the Tigers produced when they had runners in scoring position. As a whole the team went 0-for-9. Yoenis Cespedes and J.D. Martinez were 0-for-1 while Gose and Ian Kinsler finished 0-for-2. Kinsler’s double-play partner Jose Iglesias went 0-for-3.

  • One

The number of runs allowed by Tigers starter Kyle Lobstein. The starter took the loss, but the bullpen allowed most of the damage.

  • Four

The number of runs allowed by the Tigers bullpen. Lobstein did fairly well, but the bullpen let the game get out of control. Ian Krol, Tom Gorzelanny, Al Alburquerque and Blaine Hardy combined to allow five hits, three runs (all earned) and five walks over the span of three innings. The group only managed two strikeouts, both of which were Hardy’s. Alburquerque didn’t even record an out, but surrendered two walks.

5 Stats from the Detroit Tigers 2-1 Win over the New York Yankees

  • 11

J.D. Martinez and Yoenis Cespedes both drove in runs in the win. It was the eleventh RBI for each player on the season.

  • 2

The number of outs recorded by reliever Joba Chamberlain on only two pitches. The former Yankee inherited a jam as of stepping on the mound, but got out of it with only two pitches.

  • 0

The number of baserunners allowed by closer Joakim Soria in a perfect ninth inning. It will be interesting to see if Soria is afforded any closing opportunities once Joe Nathan returns. Additionally, it will be curious to see, assuming Nathan closes games again, how long of a leash Nathan is afforded given Soria’s success finishing games this season.

  • 7

The number of strikeouts by Tigers starter Alfredo Simon. The former Cincinnati Reds pitcher had five punch outs on the year entering the game.

  • 1

The number of runs scored by Victor Martinez. V-Mart clearly isn’t 100%, but hustled around from second to score the winning run on one good leg.

  • 6

The number of runs driven in by Cespedes. The Cuban outfielder had a career day against the White Sox, almost single-handedly propelling the team to victory. Cespedes also has six hits in eight lifetime at bats against Chicago starter Jose Quintana. Four of those six hits have left the yard.
