[show_scoreboard scbd_id=”34″]



WP: Sanchez (1-0) LP: Morrow (0-1)

DETROIT, Michigan–

The Tigers defeated the Toronto Blue Jays in the opening game of a three game series today at Comerica Park by a score of 7-3. Detroit scored early in the game and never relinquished the lead.

Miguel Cabrera was the offensive star of the game, going 4 for 5 with 4 RBIs and a huge 4th inning home run. The home run by Miggy was his 100th career bomb at Comerica Park. Torii Hunter finished 3 for 5. One of those hits was the 2,000th of his major league career. The Comerica Park faithful gave him a well deserved standing ovation. New Daddy Alex Avila also slammed his 2nd home run of the year!

Defensively, Don Kelly took over for Andy Dirks in left, and made one of the plays of the year by reaching over the left field wall, robbing JP Arencibia of a sure home run.

Starting pitcher Anibal Sanchez pitched 7 outstanding innings, allowing 5 hits and 2 runs while striking out 8 Blue Jays. Drew Smyly, Al Albuquerque and Joaquin Benoit all pitched well out of the bullpen, the only blemish being a home run given up by Benoit.

Game 2 of the series between the Tigers and Jays will be tomorrow at 1:08 pm, with Mark Buehrle dueling against Rick Porcello. Detroit moves to 4-3 on the season, while Toronto falls to 2-5.
