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

Baltimore, Maryland. – The sudden hiring of Scott Harris as head of baseball operations wasn’t the only plot of Monday night.

Tyler Alexander may have folded a line or two himself.

The Tigers 1-12 were in their prime this season and the last few Tigers ever milled. He was marked by 19-round gain in 17 runs, yielding seven home runs and 0.760 slowdowns in his last four starts.

Detroit Tigers starting bowler Tyler Alexander bowled to the Baltimore Orioles during the first half of a baseball game, Monday, September 19, 2022, in Baltimore.

The Orioles saw a completely different version of this veteran left-handed person.

Alexander accurately tossed his four stitches and moved his cutter and changed it to different sides of the board, taking a heavy blow in the seventh inning in the Tigers’ 11-0 game.

“I really thought you’d like to go for it,” said rookie Ryan Criddler, using the nickname Alexander. “I’ve never been a part of a no-hitter before. We’ve had one year in a no-hitter for minors but have never done singles. I was pretty nervous, to be honest.”

Chest points: Tigers 11, Orioles 0

Kreidler made one of three sterling plays behind Alexander. In the sixth inning, he made a sliding backhand from a ball that hit the line, got up quickly and made a powerful throw across the diamond that Spencer Turkelson collected at first base.
