7/2/2015 | Tigers know spark can restore winning ways

At the time, Tigers manager Brad Ausmus hoped Sunday's walk-off win over the White Sox was a turning point toward more positive results.

7/2/2015 | Blue Jays meet winter trade partner in Detroit

The Tigers and Blue Jays will meet on Friday night for the first time since the offseason trade that saw Anthony Gose and Devon Travis switch sides. This could be a series in which both players have an opportunity to make their former organizations pay just a little bit more for the deal. The Tigers will be looking to jump back over the .500 mark after being swept by Pittsburgh at Comerica Park.


7/2/2015 | J.D.'s quietly strong year not lost on Ausmus

7/1/2015 | Wilson becoming an important piece for Tigers bullpen

The 3 1/3 scoreless innings of relief was, by all accounts, an atypical outing, even for a long reliever.

7/1/2015 | Ausmus not concerned about hit-by-pitches

Tigers manager Brad Ausmus agrees with Victor Martinez -- both believe Pirates right-hander Gerrit Cole plunked Detroit's designated hitter intentionally on Tuesday night. But, in Ausmus' opinion, that's yesterday's news, and he doesn't plan on giving it much thought during the remainder of the series. "I moved on the inning after it, so I'm not concerned about it," he said Wednesday afternoon.
