The Detroit Tigers looked good in their season opener against the Minnesota Twins. They looked very good.
Winning the game 4-0, the Tigers got 10 hits to the Twins five. J.D. Martinez and Alex Avila homered. Yoenis Cespedes went 2-4 with a double and a triple. The biggest story and mystery of the day was the Tigers’ starting pitcher David Price.
Price held the Twins scoreless through 8.2 innings. He held them hitless through four innings until Kennys Vargas singled on a line drive to left field in the top of the fifth inning, but Price retired the next two batters Trevor Plouff on a ground ball and Oswaldo Arcia struck out swinging, leaving Vargas stranded. Price allowed only four more hits throughout the game.
