MLB – The Tigers Win On Opening Day

Posted on April 5, 2017 in Professional Sports News.

The Tigers kicked off their regular season in style.

They beat the White Sox, 6 to 3, yesterday in Chicago.

Justin Verlander had a very good outing.

He got the opening day win, after striking out 10, while giving up just 2 runs and 2 walks, over six-and-a-third innings.

Detroit got home runs from Ian Kinsler, Nick Castellanos and Jacoby Jones.

Jones’ home run was the first of his major league career and the first for a rookie in a Tigers opening game since Kirk Gibson did it in 1980.

Kinsler was 2 for 3 and reached base four times.

Jordan Zimmerman will start for the Tigers today and James Shields takes the mound for Chicago.

Game time is 2:10.
