Kendrick's two homers power Angels past Tigers

Kendrick's two homers power Angels past Tigers DETROIT - For years the Los Angeles Angels have had a speed edge on the Detroit Tigers. Now they might be more powerful.

Indians' McAllister shakes off cold to beat Tigers 3-2

Indians' McAllister shakes off cold to beat Tigers 3-2 DETROIT -- Zach McAllister provided some warmth for his team on a bone-chilling night. The Cleveland Indians right-hander delivered his second consecutive strong start in a 3-2 victory over the Detroit Tigers on Wednesday night at Comerica Park. McAllister (2-0), who pitched 7 2/3 shutout innings a week earlier against San Diego, held the Tigers to one run on four hits in six innings while striking out four.

Preview: Indians at Tigers

The Detroit Tigers were able to claim their third straight American League Central title a season ago due in large part to their domination of the Cleveland Indians. The Tigers, who went 15-4 against the Indians in 2013, look to repeat that success starting Wednesday when they host Cleveland for the first of two games following Tuesday’s postponement. Detroit used its advantage over the Indians last year to go 47-29 inside the division, allowing the Tigers to finish one game ahead of Cleveland.

Preview: Tigers at Padres

The San Diego Padres' struggling offense faces their second former Cy Young award winner in as many days Sunday in the rubber match against the visiting Detroit Tigers. One game after losing 6-2 to Tigers ace Justin Verlander on Saturday, the Padres will take on Max Scherzer in hopes of recording their first series win of the young season. The Tigers were encouraged Saturday by the performance of closer Joe Nathan, who bounced back from a rough outing Wednesday against the Dodgers by working a scoreless ninth inning.

The San Diego Padres are hoping their slow start at the plate is a thing of the past as they head into Saturday’s matchup against the visiting Detroit Tigers. After being held to a total of 20 runs in their first nine games, the Padres showed signs of life in Friday’s series-opening 6-0 win over the Tigers, with Chase Headley breaking out of a 4-for-32 season-opening slump by delivering an RBI double and a two-run homer.

MLB Team Report - Detroit Tigers - INSIDE PITCH DETROIT -- Victor Martinez was at first base for the Detroit Tigers on Sunday in a 3-1 loss to the Baltimore Orioles. It was sort of a dress rehearsal for Detroit's week-long road trip to National League cities Los Angeles and San Diego, which starts Tuesday with a pair of games against the Dodgers.

3B Nick Castellanos made a rookie mistake Monday when he tried unsuccessfully to stretch a single to left into a double leading off the fifth inning. Castellanos knew one of the top left-field arms in the game, LF Alex Gordon's, was lurking but he tried for second anyway and was easily thrown out. He also had a problem with three straight soft pitches, striking out, but the third one got away from the catcher, allowing CF Austin Jackson, who had tripled with one out, to score the tying run. He saw a slider in the ninth and laced it to center to set up the winning run.

3B Nick Castellanos was handed the starting third base job when Detroit traded 1B Prince Fielder to Texas. He spent the last year-plus training as an outfielder but now returns to the position at which he began when the Tigers drafted him. Castellanos hit .278 in 18 Detroit at-bats last September after batting .276 with 18 home runs and 76 RBI with Triple-A Toledo. Experienced pitchers skilled at off-speed stuff may give him problems initially, but it would not be surprising to see him duplicate his Toledo numbers in his rookie season.
