Apparently our buddy Billy Zane is going to be spending a lot of time in Detroit this season. He showed up on Thursday when Austin Jackson walked it off to open the season, and he makes a triumphant return today after Alex Avila’s 2-run homer to give the Tigers a 13-12 extra innings win and series sweep over the Boston Red Sox.
Miguel Cabrera hit a game-tying home run in the bottom of the 9th inning to send the game into extra innings and had 5 RBI on the day. If he’s not the MVP this season, something is wrong in this world. Meanwhile, the Red Sox bullpen has a collective ERA of 7.94 after the first three games of the season. Both the Red Sox and Yankees are 0-3.
