    White Sox 6, Tigers 4

    Tigers bullpen squanders strong outing by Drew Smyly

    It was what manager Brad Ausmus saw take place after what he foresaw that gave the White Sox a 6-4 victory over the Tigers on Wednesday night. Ausmus foresaw a 'nice outing' for Tigers' starter Drew Smyly which is what Smyly responded with. What Ausmus saw after that, however, was a game-changing grand slam by Sox third baseman Marcus Semien on a 3-1 pitch from Ian Krol in the seventh.

  1. Despite Tigers reliever Phil Coke's struggles, he's 'here to win'

    Phil Coke allowed three runs on three hits in two-thirds of an inning Tuesday night. (Elizabeth Conley / Detroit News) Phil Coke seems always to be in peril. Sometimes he makes it to the other side and lives for another day. There are other moments, such as in Tuesday's ninth inning against the White Sox, when, a step from safety, he fails and falls and an audience is left to believe he is, at last, finished as a Tigers relief pitcher.

  2. As task gets tougher against Bruins, Red Wings seek the poise to bounce back

    At least at practice, Wings forward Todd Bertuzzi appears unperturbed by the position his team is in ahead of tonight's game. (Daniel Mears / Detroit News) The challenge is daunting, which is usually the type of challenge Mike Babcock enjoys. There's a fine line between hope and false hope, and the Wings are straddling it right now. If this series is to become a battle instead of a belting, we'll know tonight, when the Wings face the Bruins at Joe Louis Arena.

  3. Michigan, Michigan State ADs oppose unionization for athletes, expect change regardless

    Michigan State quarterback Connor Cook doesn't think a union is needed for college football players. (Dale G. Young / Detroit News)On Friday, 76 football players at Northwestern could have the future of college athletics in their hands. That's when they will vote on whether to unionize and become part of the College Athletes Players Association (CAPA). That organization, if the vote passes, would then be able to bargain on behalf of the players.

  4. Chris McCosky's game-by-game Lions predictions

    How do you think Matthew Stafford, center, and the Lions will do this season? (Robin Buckson / Detroit News)The Lions' regular season schedule was released Wednesday night, so here's an early, early attempt to predict how their season might go.
