The Tigers are playing a 4-game series against the Oakland A's and former teammate Brandon Inge.
Detroit opened the scoring with a homer by Andy Dirks in the 1st inning.
Inge popped-up his first at-bat. The next Oakland batter, Kila Ka'aihue, cranked a 2-run dinger.
Bartolo Colon is on the mound for the Athletics. I've never been impressed with Colon's athletic ability. He's probably gonna get lit-up.
Prior to the game all the Tigers' players and coaches exchanged pleasantries
He seems comfortable in his new surroundings.
I think Chili Dawg might help Brandon Inge.
Chili Davis is Oakland's hitting coach.
Chili Dawg was the first Jamaican-born player in The Show.
Chili hit 350 home runs over his 18-year big league career. That's the fourth-highest career total for a switch-hitter, behind Mickey Mantle, Eddie Murray, and Chipper Jones. That's pretty good company.
The dude was a smart hitter. I think he'll help Inge.
