MLB Detroit Tigers News

Tigers lose to Blue Jays in extra innings to start new season

by Caitlin Muciek

Despite fans’ expectations, the Tigers lost their highly anticipated season opener to the Blue Jays in extra innings on Monday.

The Toronto Blue Jays got off to an early lead by scoring three runs in the first inning against the Tiger’s starting pitcher, Jeremy Bonderman.

Making his debut as a Tiger, Gary Sheffield drove in Brandon Inge in his second at bat to make the score 3-1.

The Tigers eventually tied the score at 3-3 in the fifth inning with runs by Inge and Curtis Granderson.

From then on the game was a defensive stalemate. Craig Monroe displayed his outfield talents by stopping Toronto from scoring two homeruns.

At the end of nine innings the game was still tied at 3-3. With the fans prepared to celebrate, the Tigers just couldn’t hold on.

In the top of the tenth inning Fernando Rodney, Tiger’s relief pitcher, loaded the bases with one out, and the Blue Jays broke the tie with a run by Jason Smith.

The Blue Jays went on to score one more run to beat the Tigers 5-3.
