Sizzling Jays mash Tigers SP Alfredo Simon for four dingers


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/30/2015) Tigers starter Alfredo Simon has been getting clobbered since mid-June. And he was pitching Sunday on the road against the explosive Blue Jays.

It was not a recipe for success.

Simon spent much of his afternoon watching baseballs travel over the fence. Toronto slugged four home runs against him. He allowed six runs on five hits in six innings with two walks and two strikeouts.

Blasts by Josh Donaldson and Edwin Encarnacion got Simon off to a bad start in the first, then taters by Kevin Pillar and Russell Martin added to his misery.

Simon has just one quality start over his last six outings. His 5.09 ERA is a season-high.

Starter Alfredo Simon the hard-luck loser for Tigers


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(5/17/2015) For the second straight contest, Tigers starter Alfredo Simon found himself locked in a 2-1 battle, only Sunday, he was on the wrong end of the ledger, as Detroit dropped a hard-fought contest to the Cardinals. 

Simon went seven innings, scattering seven hits while giving up two runs. His biggest mistake was a sixth-inning home run to Kolten Wong. Simon remained inconsistent, striking out four, while also walking four batters.

After starting the season winning his first four starts, Simon has two losses and two no-decisions in his last four outings.
