Despite the Tigers' struggles with the bases loaded and nobody out over the last few days, they entered Sunday batting .301 with runners in scoring position since the All-Star break, second among American League teams behind only the Yankees. For the season, however, Detroit's .202 average with the bases loaded ranks second lowest in the AL ahead of only Cleveland.
The Tigers were filmed on and off the field this weekend by MLB Productions as part of its new weekly show, "Caught Looking," that will premiere Wednesday night on the NBC Sports Network. The show is intended to provide a behind-the-scenes look at contending teams during big series in the middle of a playoff race, following players as they head to the park, taking batting practice and prepare for games. The Tigers and Rangers will be featured in the debut episode.
