After taking two of in Kansas City, the Tigers dropped their opener to the AL East cellar dwellers, the Baltimore Orioles. Luke Scott was a thorn in the Tigers side and he accounted for most of the Orioles offense and a lack of offense cost Armando Galarraga his first win in a while. He gave up three runs on ten hits and one walk with four strikeouts in seven innings. Bobby Seay and Ryan Perry both gave up a run each in their inning pitched.
The lone Tiger run came in the fifth inning. Clete Thomas, who was batting leadoff, singled home Gerald Laird. Curtis Granderson had two of the Tigers five hits and he stole his eighth base.
Igby Goes Down on dvd Tonight, Orioles prospect phenom Matt Wieters makes his major league debut. On the mound, it’ll be Dontrelle Willis going up against Brad Bergensen. Willis followed up his awesome start last Tuesday with a decent enough start on Sunday so hopefully he can make it three in a row.
