Historic Day at Comerica Park

What a way to start the season. The Tigers made the most of their renovations by putting on a show in front of a record crowd at the ballpark. Dmitri Young became the first Tiger to hit three homers on an Opening Day as the Tigers laid down a beating on the Kansas City Royals.

Not to be outdone, Brandon Inge hit a two run shot of his own, and drove in three runs. The only Tiger starter who went hitless was Magglio Ordonez, so hopefully he’ll get his when we need it on Wednesday.

Jeremy Bonderman threw a very solid game against a relatively weak Royals lineup. He struck out seven batters over seven innings.

This is a pretty important series for the Tigers. Not because they were playing a good team, but because they need to come out of this series with at least two wins. Good teams beat bad teams. The Royals are a bad team, but until the Tigers show they can beat the bad teams consistently, they won’t be able to take that next step, contention.

At least for a couple of days, Tigers fans have something to be happy about.
