The Detroit Tigers didn't wait long to call this one.
The Tigers announced that 22,045 tickets were sold for Monday night's game between the Indians and Tigers at Comerica Park. Zach McAllister relieved and Alex Avila blooped a single into center to score Martinez and Upton for a 7-1 lead. Columbia went 2-1 against Asheville and 1-3 against the Hickory (North Carolina) Crawdads.
"It was a lot of fun". "I tried not to worry about that and just worry about the game".
"My first time in the big leagues didn't go this way and a year ago I had one at-bat, so to get up here and be able to help and produce is a great feeling". My heart was going boom, boom, boom. When I wasn't pitching, I came in here.
So what happened between spring training and the start of the regular season? "It's something that's a good weapon to have, especially leading off an inning".
Robbie Ray (2-2) struck out 10 against the team that drafted and signed him in 2010 but allowed two runs and four hits over six innings. He allowed four walks and struck out five. Over seven games Adduci is hitting.333.
"All systems go. Make sure he gets out of bed OK in the morning, before anything gets done. He'll scatter some balls, but he had really good stuff".
Trevor Bauer (2-3) gave up seven runs on seven hits and five walks in four-plus innings. You just settle in and keep making pitches.
"I thought when he got to about 90 pitches, I thought with where they were in the lineup, we had asked enough". You look up in the fourth inning and his strike-to-ball (ratio) is nearly relatively even.
"Miggy's a guy that you want all year". We're going to have some ups and downs. "That was the concern early".
The Tigers jumped out to a 5-1 lead through three innings on Tuesday and held on from there.
With a full day of rain and cold temperatures expected on Thurday, the Tigers postponed their scheduled game against the Cleveland Indians at 9:25 a.m., nearly four hours before the scheduled first pitch. He'll be replaced for the time being by righty Joe Colon.
DETROIT (AP) - Miguel Cabrera went from the disabled list to rounding the bases with the 450th home run of his career. The star slugger is hitting.268 with three homers and nine RBIs in 16 games.
