The Tigers played the Braves twice over the weekend, and the result is a 2-0 start to spring training.
Game 1 saw a collective no-hitter go into the 8th inning. Everybody pitched clean, which is surprising for early March.
Game 2 displayed the explosive offense that us fans have been looking forward to since the signing of Prince Fielder. 7 players hit homers; Fielder, Raburn, Peralta, Jackson, Young, Avila, and Boesch. They’re all starters, folks.
This is a sign of things to come, of course. Solid pitching and big numbers in the run column. If it can keep up like this heading into the season, and everybody works their kinks out now, it’s going to be one hell of a season.
