Fifteen On Opening Day

The Tigers provided some fireworks this afternoon as they kicked off their first home series with a 15-2 blowout win over the then undefeated Texas Rangers.  Miguel Cabrera was one of many hitting stars but his six RBIs led the way.  He also jacked his third home run while Jeff Larish also went yard in the game.  Every Tiger starter had at least one hit and one run and the only starter who didn’t drive in a run was Brandon Inge.

Lost in all of the offense was a very nice start by Armando Galarraga.  He gave up just one run on five hits and a walk with eight strikeouts.  Ryan Perry walked two and struck out one in 2/3 of an inning while Eddie Bonine gave up a run in his 1 1/3 innings to close out the game.

For an interesting take on the game, Gary Gillette blogged the game while in the press booth over at Tigers Corner The Hard Word download .  Well worth checking out for the humor alone.
