Hump Day Blurbs: Tigers and sports playoffs news

The Detroit Tigers are on fire!

I wanna see ya, with KIA.
The Tigers have won six straight games and are 18-9 (through 5-5) which is the best record in the American League. Hunter, Kinsler and Martinez have led the way in the Tigers lineup. Hunter has been showing his pop and showing off his defensive prowess in right field. Phil Coke (9.39 ERA) needs to be banished to the KIA Tigers. The bullpen has been better, but I'm still pleased by the Joel Hanrahan signing. The former All-Star closer w/ Pittsburgh should pitch next month. He brings a power pitcher to the late innings and can jump in to the closer's role if Nathan struggles.UPDATE! SEVEN IN A ROW -- 11-4 Tigers beat the Astros Tuesday! Miggy 4-5, 4 RBI, HR ... Worth 2-3, 3 RBI ... Robbie Ray 5 1/3 IP, 5 H, 1 BB, 1 ER, 5 K ... Al-Al 1-2-3 8th inning w/ 2 K
