    Rick Porcello's impact growing on Tigers' starry staff

    In some ways, he's as grizzled as a 25-year-old guy can be. Rick Porcello has been around for good times, bad times, big times and small times. Half of being a pitcher is finding your way to the mound, and the other half is staying there.

  1. Bruins take advantage of Red Wings' mistakes

    Jimmy Howard, Jakub Kindl, and Brian Lashoff couldn't keep Boston's Reilly Smith from scoring in the first period. (Photos by David Guralnick / Detroit News) What the Red Wings knew coming into the series against the best team in the NHL during the regular season is they needed to make few mistakes, get good goaltending, retain their style of game and use their speed in order to prevail. Apparently, after accomplishing that in Game 1, they got a big reminder in Game 2.

  2. Former Pistons executive Scott Perry could be ready for his shot as general manager

    Pistons owner Tom Gores has enlisted a search firm to help find a general manager. (Daniel Mears/Detroit News)The Pistons have promised a wide-ranging search for their new head of basketball operations, soliciting assistance from near and far, with research firms leading the pursuit.

  3. New Tigers farmhand J.D. Martinez shows off his power at Toledo

    J.D. Martinez, surprisingly released by the Astros, hit four of his 10 home runs for Toledo on Saturday. (Ronald Martinez / Getty Images)No one had to introduce J.D. Martinez to the Tigers. They had known about him for years, long before he signed a big league contract with the Astros in 2009.

  4. Bruins blister Red Wings, knot series as it heads to Detroit

    Pavel Datsyuk skates away as Boston celebrates a goal by Reilly Smith in the first period. (David Guralnick / Detroit News)The Red Wings earned a split in these first two games, which is probably what they would have wanted heading into this Eastern Conference playoff series. But the momentum is squarely back with the Bruins.
