Detroit Tigers Links: Price and Feller, Anibal needs to be pain-free & Moya's debut

Detroit Tigers’ David Price shares some history with Bob Feller – John Lowe, Detroit Free Press

In Tampa Bay, Price lost a complete-game one-hitter in which the only hit he yielded was a triple. As researched on Baseball-Reference.com, only one other pitcher in the last 100 years had lost a complete game in which the only hit he gave up was a triple. That pitcher was Feller, the Indians’ hard-throwing Hall of Famer. He suffered that one-hit loss to the St. Louis Browns in 1952. Like Price, he yielded the triple in the bottom of the first inning – and Feller gave up his to the leadoff hitter.

In his start between the one-hitter and Monday, Price got routed. He gave up eight runs in his loss to the Yankees. With those last two starts, Price virtually duplicated Feller’s work in his only World Series.

In Game 1 in 1948 against the Boston Braves, Feller threw a brilliant low-hit game. But he lost that two-hitter, 1-0. In his only other start in that series, in Game 5, Feller gave up seven runs and lost again.

The Tigers continue to be very cautious with right-hander Anibal Sanchez, who has been on the disabled list since Aug. 9 with a major strain of his right pectoralis. Manager Brad Ausmus reported Monday that Sanchez is feeling better, but there is no timetable for the veteran starter to resume throwing.

His first major-league game, his first major-league at-bat — and in the ninth inning of a 12-1 victory over the Cleveland Indians, his major-league hit. It was a single to right, after which he rode home on Tyler Collins’s first major-league home run — a blast to center.

“I couldn’t ask for more,” said Moya, who followed the flight of his first-hit ball as it was thrown to the Tigers’ dugout.
