Motor City Bengals Presents “Tiger Talk” with hosts Matt Pelc and Dave Holcomb.
It was certainly the worst week of the year for the Detroit Tigers as they lost both a series to the Chicago White Sox and to the Kansas City Royals, but it is a long season.
This week’s episode begins with the heartbreaking defeat on Sunday Night Baseball. Despite loading the bases in both the ninth and 10th innings, the Tigers were unable to score and lost to the Royals, 2-1. Both hosts debate the moves of Tigers manager Brad Ausmus in the last two innings of the game.

In the second segment, Holcomb and Pelc list the long and still growing injury list for the Detroit Tigers. Catcher Alex Avila and starting pitcher David Price are the newest additions. Avila could have knee surgery and won’t return before the second half, but Price is hopeful he will make his next start. Of course, Ausmus is confusing the situation by not confirming his ace’s statement.
Should fans be concerned Ausmus and the Tigers are hiding another injury? Hear what both Pelc and Holcomb have to say on the matter.
Finally, in the “Around the League” segment, the two hosts talk about the hottest team in the AL Central, the surprise Minnesota Twins. At 18-14, the Twins sit in third place and have a chance to catch the Tigers this week when the two division foes renew their rivalry.
