Tigers Lose Ugly To O’s, Come Home Today
The Tigers had the lead until the 7th inning last night. Too bad baseball games are nine innings. Baltimore came up with 5 runs in the 7th and beat the Tigers 9-5 continuing Detroit’s road woes. The good news? Our home opener is today at Comerica Park.
First pitch is scheduled for just after 3 pm, weather permitting. The Tigers limp home with a 2-4 record so far which has many of us fans thinking “here we go again”. Last year the Tigers finished 81-81. At home we rocked! 52-29. Unfortunately, our road record was the mirror image of the home stats. 29-52 It’s still early, but for the Tigers to be contenders for the postseason they need to be able to win at home and on the road.
Kansas City is 4-2 and currently in first place in the American League Central Division. That’s who the Tigers play today and this weekend. Time for the Motor City Kitties to grow some claws.
