Nice start! Alex Gonzalez is hero, Tigers win on walk-off hit

Underneath all that snow, there wasn’t just a diamond – as the Tigers’ commercial told us all winter there would be. There was a perfect Opening Day in the works. So was the long wait worth it? All that skidding, all that shivering, all that shoveling? The largest crowd to attend an opener at Comerica Park (45,068) would say it was. Seriously, what more could have gone...

Video: Alex Gonzalez Delivers Walk-off Hit on Opening Day

Everyone who predicted Alex Gonzalez would be the Detroit Tigers’ hero on Opening Day, please take one step forward ……. Everyone who took a step forward is a liar. The Tigers’ new shortstop, who was booed after an error in a sloppy fourth inning, tied the game against the Kansas City Royals with a two-out triple in the seventh. He then won it on a walk-off, line drive single...

Detroit Tigers opening day observations

What a spectacular Opening Day for the Detroit Tigers that was eventually won 4-3 in walk-off fashion by the newest Tiger, Alex Gonzalez.

Which is kinda nuts considering Lombardozzi was a (presumably) important part of the Tigers trade of Doug Fister trade and Gonzalez was a non-roster invitee for the Orioles. Detroit obviously...
