Miguel Cabrera came into Opening Day with 487 career home runs and he left the day with 488 as the Detroit Tigers defeated the Cleveland Indians on a cold, snowy day at Comerica Park.
Cabrera’s home run came in the first inning when Comerica Park looked more like a snow globe than a baseball stadium.

As far as pitching goes, Matthew Boyd did not have his A-game but he did manage to get throw 5 2/3 innings without giving up a run to an Indians team that had beat the Tigers 65 of the past 85 times they played.
The Tigers did end up surrendering a pair of runs in the top of the ninth inning as Gregory Soto struggled but eventually got the final out to preserve a 3-2 win.
The Tigers and Indians will play next on Saturday at 1:10 p.m. ET.
