Tyler Alexander flirts with a no-hitter as Tigers blitz Orioles, 11-0


Baltimore, Md. — The rather sudden hiring of Scott Harris as president of baseball operations wasn’t the only plot twist Monday night.

Tyler Alexander might’ve bent a plot line or two himself. 

The Tigers were 1-12 in his starts this season and his last few have been an absolute grind. He’d been tagged for 19 earned runs in 17 innings, yielding seven home runs and a .760 slugging percentage in his last four starts.

Detroit Tigers starting pitcher Tyler Alexander throws to the Baltimore Orioles during the first inning of a baseball game, Monday, Sept. 19, 2022, in Baltimore.

The Orioles saw a very different version of this veteran left-hander.

Throwing his four-seamer with precision and moving his cutter and changeup to different sides of the plate, Alexander took a no-hitter into the seventh inning of the Tigers’ 11-0 romp.

He’d allowed two walks and got three sterling defensive plays behind him. Gunnar Henderson in the second inning hit a bullet directly over the head of Riley Greene in center field. The ball traveled 406 feet but Greene, though he spun the wrong way at first, recovered and caught the ball as he was banging into the wall.
