Tried to follow along at work today the best I could, but it sort of got tuned out after the 6th inning. All in all the outcome of Rick Porcello's debut also can best describe the Tigers opening series. Not the outcome we were looking for, but far from a disaster.
Going just by what I heard and looking at the boxscore so I could be off here, but Porcello did a good job throwing strikes and getting the ground ball when he needed it. He just ran out of gas in the 6th.
So 3 out of 4 starters had a good game. The offense had there chances against one of the better pitching staffs in the AL. While the series might not have gone the Tigers way, going into the home opener I feel a lot better about this Tiger team then the 08 Version.
Tigers 2 Blue Jays 6
W: Romero (1-0)
L: Porcello (0-1)
