Tigers' Anibal Sanchez allows two runs in rain-shortened start


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(8/19/2015) Tigers starter Anibal Sanchez was heading in line for a win on Tuesday, but a rain delay of more than two hours left him with a no-decision against the Cubs. Sanchez wound up allowing two runs on three hits over 2 1/3 innings.

The two runs came on a first-inning, two-run home run by Chris Coghlan.

The Tigers would end up winning the game 10-8.


Tigers SP Anibal Sanchez struggles against Royals on Tuesday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(8/11/2015) Tigers starter Anibal Sanchez struggled in his outing against the Royals on Tuesday. The veteran right-hander allowed five runs on seven hits over 5 1/3 innings, making his third consecutive of at least four earned runs allowed. 

Sanchez (10-10, 4.95 ERA) had trouble keeping the ball in the yard on Tuesday, as all five runs he allowed came on home runs. He gave up a two-run shot to Eric Hosmer in the first inning, and then settled in over the next four innings. But he surrendered a solo homer to Lorenzo Cain and a two-run shot to Mike Moustakas in the sixth inning, before being pulled from the game.

Sanchez has allowed a total of 15 earned runs over this past three starts.


Tigers' Anibal Sanchez endures another rough start onThusday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(8/6/2015) Tigers right-hander Anibal Sanchez had an uneven outing in his start against the Royals on Thursday afternoon. The veteran hurler allowed four runs on five hits over six-plus innings. He walked four and struck out six, throwing 65 of his 104 pitches for strikes.

Sanchez got roughed up for three runs in the second inning, but the Tigers answered back with four in the third. He was able to settle in from there, throwing up zeroes on the board. That was until he surrendered a solo home run to Drew Butera to lead off the seventh inning. That was the knockout blow for Sanchez, who wound up with a no-decision in the 8-6 walk-off win.

"Second inning was the only inning I'm really disappointed in, especially because I gave [up] a walk with the bases loaded," Sanchez said, per MLB.com. "It's something I don't like. I know it's a part of the game. I know it's a situation, but right there, that's put in my mind a little bit."

Sanchez has been giving out runs at a discount it seems lately. He has allowed 17 earned runs over his past four starts, leading to a 6.22 ERA over that stretch.


Tigers' Anibal Sanchez able to eat up innings, but struggles in loss


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(8/1/2015) Tigers starter Anibal Sanchez struggled in his outing against the Orioles on Saturday. The veteran right-hander allowed six runs on nine hits over 6 2/3 innings. He struck out five and did not walk a batter, but he was left with his ninth loss of the year in the 6-2 defeat.

Sanchez (10-9, 4.77 ERA) got off to a shaky start in this one, allowing two runs in the first and another in the second to put the team down 3-0 before he could blink. Things got worse for Sanchez as he allowed a two-run home run to Caleb Joseph in the fourth inning. 

Sanchez started the seventh, but he gave up a solo home run to Manny Machado, which would be the end of the night for Sanchez, who threw 95 pitches (66 strikes) on the night.

He is now 4-2 with a 5.05 ERA over his past seven starts for the Tigers.


Tigers SP Anibal Sanchez takes loss in Monday's outing


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

Sanchez allowed three runs on eight hits over 5 1/3 innings during the 5-2 loss. Sanchez struck out six and walked two. He also surrendered a solo home run to Curt Casali in the third inning. He is now 10-8 with a 4.61 ERA.

Prior to Monday's loss, Sanchez had been on a four-game winning steak and had not lost any of his previous eight starts.


Tigers SP Anibal Sanchez can't cruise past Cruz, but still wins


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/22/2015) Tigers right-hander Anibal Sanchez came within one out of his 10th consecutive quality start Wednesday, but it mattered not. He still snagged his seventh straight win.

Sanchez allowed four runs on nine hits in 6 2/3 innings to beat Seattle. He walked two and fanned six. Two homers by Nelson Cruz, who has thrived at Comerica Park, doomed him to mediocre numbers.

Run support has certainly helped Sanchez, who has not performed particularly well in recent outings. He has allowed 20 runs in his last 40 1/3 innings pitched in raising his ERA to 4.59, but is still 5-0 during that stretch.


Anibal Sanchez wins sixth straight for Tigers


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(7/17/2015) Tigers starter Anibal Sanchez won his sixth straight decision on Friday, over Baltimore. 

Sanchez hasn't lost since June 3.

Sanchez scattered eight hits, giving up just two runs over six innings. The outing was his shortest since May 24, which was also the last time he gave up eight hits. 

Sanchez walked two and struck out three. He's now 9-7 on the season.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/9/2015) Tigers starting pitcher Anibal Sanchez will start the team's first game after the All-Star break against the Orioles, according to MLive.com. He will be followed in the three-game series by David Price and Justin Verlander.

Tigers SP Anibal Sanchez has wild, but winning afternoon


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/8/2015) Walking five in 6 1/3 innings is not generally a recipe for success for any starting pitcher. But it didn't cost Tigers right-hander Anibal Sanchez a win Wednesday afternoon in Seattle.

Sanchez indeed issued a season-high five free passes, but still emerged with his eighth victory. He allowed three runs on five hits with six strikeouts.

He did not retire the Mariners in order in any inning. The big blow against him was a two-run homer by Dustin Ackley in the fourth.

Sanchez has given up seven runs and eight walks in his last 13 2/3 innings over his last two starts, yet has come away with a pair of victories.


Tigers SP Anibal Sanchez loses no-hitter in eighth inning Friday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/3/2015) Tigers right-hander Anibal Sanchez flirted with history on Friday, but would come up short.

With the Tigers up comfortably 8-0, Sanchez took a no-hitter into the eighth inning. But he gave up a one-out single to Ezequiel Carrera, and then the wheels started to come off.

Sanchez, who had already walked the leadoff batter in the inning, proceeded to load the bases before Ryan Goins singled in the first run for the Blue Jays. That would be all for Sanchez, but the bullpen would allow five more runs to score in the eighth.

But the Tigers were able to hang on for the 8-6 win, giving Sanchez his seventh win of the season. Ultimately, Sanchez allowed four runs on three hits over 7 1/3 innings. He walked three and struck out five, throwing 117 pitches on the evening.

"Sanchy did a great job," said Tigers manager Brad Ausmus, per MLB.com. "I think he got a little weary at the end. Pitch count was up. When you get tired, you lose a little bit of your control, but he did, obviously, an outstanding job tonight."

This makes back-to-back outings in which Sanchez has allowed four earned runs, as his ERA sits at 4.65 on the year. 


No-decision snaps three-start win streak for Tigers' Anibal Sanchez


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(6/27/2015) Anibal Sanchez gave up four runs in seven innings and took a no-decision for the Tigers, Friday against Chicago. 

Sanchez allowed seven hits, including three home runs and struck out seven. The no-decision snapped a three-start win streak for Sanchez. 


Tigers SP Anibal Sanchez delivers strong start in win on Sunday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(6/21/2015) Tigers right-hander Anibal Sanchez turned in another positive outing on Sunday. Sanchez limited the Yankees to three runs on seven hits through seven innings. He walked two and struck out four in the 12-4 victory.

Sanchez (6-7) was given plenty of run support by his offense, as the Tigers were up 6-0 in the second inning. Sanchez gave up two runs in the bottom half of that frame, including a solo home run to Brian McCann. The veteran right-hander also served up a solo bomb to Stephen Drew in the seventh.

"He came out guns a blazing in the first inning, then hit a little bit of a rough patch," Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said, per MLB.com. "In the end, he did what we needed him to."

Sanchez has been much better this month after a rough month of May. Through four starts in June, he has given up seven runs in 32 2/3 innings, lowering his ERA from 5.69 to 4.59 in the process.

He'll look to keep up the pace in his next start, scheduled for Friday in a home matchup against the White Sox.

Homers hurt Tigers SP Anibal Sanchez again in defeat


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(5/24/2015) Tigers starter Anibal Sanchez has had an up and down season, and Sunday, home runs were once again a problem as the pitcher picked up a no-decision in the Tigers' 10-8 loss to the Astros. 

Sanchez gave up two sixth-inning home runs to bring his total to 11 this season -- over the prior two campaigns, Sanchez had given up just 13 homers.

"I thought all my pitches were working well today. Even the two homers were both down -- really down -- and they just put good swings on them," Sanchez said.


GM: Tigers SP Anibal Sanchez feels it's all about location


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/20/2015) Tigers general manager Dave Dombrowski does not believe struggling starter Anibal Sanchez is dealing with any physical issues, Fox Sports is reporting.

He is certainly dealing with something.

"He says he feels great and his stuff has been good, but not located consistently well," Dombrowski said.

Three of his pitches were located over the fence Tuesday night by the Brewers. Sanchez has allowed nine home runs in 54 2/3 innings this season after surrendering just four in 126 innings a year ago. It's no wonder his record his 3-5 and his ERA has skyrocketed to 5.60.

Sanchez has been tremendously inconsistent. He has given up eight runs in 35 1/3 innings in five of his starts and 26 runs in 19 1/3 innings in his other four.

Dave Dombrowski told me today #Tigers do not believe there is any physical or injury issue with Anibal Sanchez now.

Dombrowski on Anibal Sanchez: "He says he feels great and his stuff has been good, but not located consistently well."

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5/19/2015) Tigers pitcher Anibal Sanchez allowed seven runs on seven hits in 3 2/3 innings of work in Detroit's 8-1 loss to the Brewers on Tuesday.

Sanchez blew up in the third inning when he allowed back-to-back-to-back home runs to Ryan Braun, Adam Lind and Aramis Ramirez, accounting for five of the six runs allowed in the inning. He only totaled two strikeouts in the game.

"It's been clearly something that is uncharacteristic for [Sanchez]," manager Brad Ausmus said, per MLB.com. "The long ball wasn't an issue last year, but this year has been a little bit of a different story. Now, we've also seen some outstanding starts from Sanchie, but when he doesn't have his command down in the zone, his offspeed pitches especially, that's when they hit him."

Sanchez, now 3-5, moved his ERA to 5.60 in 54 2/3 innings of work. He will look to get back on track Sunday against the Astros.

Tigers' Anibal Sanchez rocked in loss vs. Royals


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/9/2015) Tigers pitcher Anibal Sanchez took a loss Saturday, allowing six runs (five earned) on nine hits and three walks in six innings while striking out two in his team's 6-2 defeat against the Royals.

The Royals were able to get to Sanchez (2-4) early, with Alcides Escobar smacking the first pitch of the game for a home run and the rest of the offense adding three more runs by the second inning. Sanchez then gave up a run in the third and another in the fourth to put his team in a big hole, out from which they couldn't climb.

"The first pitch for Escobar I think was way high," Sanchez said to MLB.com. "It's not like a good pitch. It's a ball. He's just jumping at that fastball. He just got good contact and that's why he got a homer."

Sanchez owns a 5.44 ERA and 37:12 K:BB ratio in 43 innings. He's slated to face the Cardinals in St. Louis Friday.

"[Sanchez] hit his spots," Royals second baseman Christian Colon said. "He executed his pitches. But hey, they won two and we won two. They're a good team, we're a good team."

Sanchez owns a 5.11 ERA and 35:9 K:BB ratio in 37 innings. He'll square off with the Royals again Saturday, this time at home.
