The Detroit Tigers had another great week of baseball, going 4-2 in the week of April 13 through 19. Couple that with the 6-0 start, and the Tigers are off to a start that probably even the most ardent Detroit baseball backer did not foresee.
Monday night the Tigers continued their winning ways by taking out the New York Yankees, 2-1 to improve their record to 11-2, but for the purpose of this article we will look at the players and how they performed for the last week.
The title of this article is “heroes and zeroes” and it is hard to be negative with the type of start, but we will touch on one zero, though the heroes with positive performances greatly outweighed the players who struggled.
In fact it was tough to whittle it down to just a handful of top performers of the previous week.
Such players as Nick Castellanos (.421/.450/.526), Jose Iglesias (.350/.409/.500) and Miguel Cabrera (.318/.375/.455) didn’t make the cut. Miggy could probably make this list every week. There are also too many pitchers to mention (yes even from the bullpen) that could have also easily made the list.
So without further ado, let’s take a trip through the slideshow for Detroit Tigers heroes and zeroes.
