Tigers Win With a Walkoff Hit
The Detroit Tigers won the season opener against the Boston Red Sox 3-2. Justin Verlander was outstanding today pitching 8 shutout innings with 7 strikeouts and 1 walk while giving up only 2 hits. After a blown save by Jose Valverde in the 9th inning, which was his first blown save in his last 51 chances, the Tigers battled back in the bottom of the 9th to win on an Austin Jackson walkoff Single.
The Tigers next game is Saturday the 7th when Doug Fister will go against Josh Beckett.
