Shouldn't that be "scored in 8 of 9 innings"?  Saying "in all 8 innings" makes it sound like there are only 8 innings.

Rockies did that against the Cubs one year.  May 5, 1999 according to Baseball Reference.  Why, yes, the Cubs were bad that year, of course.  Difficulty:  they were the visitors so they had to score in all 9 innings.

This. Just because they didn't bat in the 9th, it doesn't mean the inning never happened.

Because all baseball games have a bottom of the 9th inning, especially when it's meaningless because the home team is winning.

It didn't happen for the Tigers, offensively speaking.  The point is the Tigers scored in 100% of the innings in which they had the opportunity to do so.

Didn't realize the Rockies existed in 1912. The team, that is.

No. Not needed for baseball fans with more than one year of spectation experience. But thanks for trying to be helpful.

First time since 1912 for the Tigers, that is.  Per TFA, the Blue Jays did it in 2006.

And anyway, scoring in all 9 innings would be one more impressive.

It would be a big step up because you'd have to the road team or be trailing in the bottom of the 9th despite scoring in all the previous 8 innings.

Actually, the Blue Jays didn't do it in 2006, the Yankees did it.

Badly written article is a badly written article.

I understand that they scored in every inning they batted in, but, the 9th still happened. Its still an impressive feat, though.

Growing up in Detroit/suburbs in the 60s, baseball and the Tigers were everything for sports. Never even touched a football until age 9 when the new kid on the block was into football and imported it from wherever he came from. When I first heard there was some sports team called the "Lions" I thought it was some kind of joke about the Tigers.

Even considering how shiat the Lions have been for the last umpteen decades, I find this hard to believe, if only because Ann Arbor is among the yuppiest of Detroit's suburbs.

It needs to be done more like the RON PAUL meme. DAVE PRICE.

/the Rockies scored in every inning against the Cubs about 15 years ago

I was at that game! I was excited to see it, but all the bleacher creatures around me? Not so much...

It's been 102 years since a team scored in every inning? I would have guessed that happens many times every season

I had a set of baseball cards in the early 70s that named odd one-offs like this, so I always watch for them. As far as I know, only once has a team scored in all nine innings.
Honestly though, scoring in all nine violates one of the unwritten rules of baseball.

The first time the Tigers win at home since 1912?  (No, wait, I'm thinking of the Lions.)

Is that rule 632 or rule 591?

csb: Was flipping through channels today and happened to catch a wrap up show where a former big leaguer was analyzing the right and wrong way to throw at an opposing player.  He was actually discussing not only the pitch sequence but pitch selection and how a first pitch slider or off speed pitch was an indicator that a pitcher wasn't going to plunk the batter.  And to plunk the batter on the SECOND pitch after an initial off speed pitch was against the unwritten rules.  Also, he said that if the pitcher was throwing at a batter and missed on his first pitch he wasn't supposed to try again.

/unwritten rules are the worst.

Ann Arbor is not a Detroit suburb, certainly in no way shape or form or at least not until they finished the M-14 connector plus I-275 and l-96 in the '80s. And the word yuppie wasn't even coined until 1983. Don't conflate college football (age 17-23) with "growing up" (ages 3-12).
