Opening Day — Sox vs Tigers
Happy 2017 Opening Day
Thanks to the weather, postponement was in order.
Jose Quintana would make his 1st opening day appearance. Facing off against Justin Verlander would be a tall ask.
*Sox would get on the board in the home half of the 1st when Tyler Saladino would score on a Melky Cabrera double. Sox – 1 and Tigers – 0
*Top of the 2nd would see Q get burned for 2 home runs with runners on, at the close of the inning it was Detroit 5 and White Sox 1
*Top of the 4th and Q would get taken for a solo shot giving the Tigers a 6 to 1 lead.
*Bottom of the 4th Melky with a nasty double to left center, getting to 3rd of a Verlander wild pitch. Jose Abreu grounding to short gets Melky home cutting the Tigers lead 6 to 2
The bottom of the 9th and the boys could only manage 1 more run before they were shut down for the night.
Final Score – White Sox 3 and Tigers 6
James Shields is listed as the probable starter.
