Alex Avilla’s Walk-Off Homer In The 11th Inning Yesterday Gave The Tigers A Win Over Boston

by

It was a hitter’s paradise yesterday afternoon at Comerica Park and in the end, the Tigers enjoyed it the most.  The 2-out, 2-run shot by Alex Avila in the bottom of the 11th inning gave the Tigers a stunning 13-to-12 win over Boston and a sweep of the season opening 3-game series from the Red Sox. 

A 3-run homer for Detroit by Miguel Cabrera in the bottom of the ninth tied the score at 10-all to send the game into extra innings. Cabrera had 3 hits, three runs scored and 5 rbi’s for the Tigers, who trailed 12-to-10 heading into the bottom of the 11th.

Duane Below got one out and was credited with the win in a game that lasted 4 hours and 45 minutes. Detroit leadoff batter Austin Jackson, who had the game winning walk-off single in Thursday’s season opener, had four more hits yesterday.

The Tigers rest up today before hosting Tampa Bay for 3 straight afternoon games beginning tomorrow. The Rays opened their season by sweeping 3 games from the Yankees.

The White Sox were shutout 5-to-0 last night at Texas while the Cubs beat the Nationals 4-to-3 at Wrigley Field to avoid a sweep by Washington
