To celebrate Michael Fulmer Day, Bless You Boys recalls some of our favorite Fulminator moments of 2016.
May 21, 2016 - First start in Detroit
The Tigers beat the Tampa Bay Rays, 5-4, thanks to Fulmer’s stellar start. He struck out 11 and gave up only one run - a solo home run to Evan Longoria - and earned the W in front of the home crowd.
June 1, 2016 - Near no-hitter in Los Angeles
Fulmer went 7 2⁄3 innings against the Angels and didn’t allow a hit until the bottom of the 7th with two outs. The Tigers won 3-0 and Fulmer got the win.
August 14, 2016 - Complete game shutout in Arlington
Arguably Fulmer’s best start of the season, he went a full nine innings and earned his tenth win in a 7-0 victory against the Texas Rangers. He struck out nine and walked none; he allowed only four hits.
