The Tigers played a good all around game in this one. Cornejo had a quality start, the pen came in and did their job, and the Tigers took advantage of Orioles’ errors and turned them into runs.
What may have been significant in this one was how the Tigers worked the count in the first inning. They forced Johnson to throw around 25 pitches. They didn’t score in the first, but this could have had an impact later in the game.
