Tigers 9, White Sox 1
After yesterday’s thumping, the Tigers got everything straightened out quickly on Sunday. Shane Greene (3 GS, 23 IP, 0.39 ERA, 2.69 FIP) did more Shane Greene things over seven innings of one run baseball and the offense exploded courtesy of two massive Yoenis Cespedes home runs in the first and third innings that delivered six of the team’s nine runs. Victor Martinez also have three his including his first extra base knock of the year as the Tigers cruised passed White Sox for their fourth straight series win to start the 2015 season. They’ll welcome the Yankees to town on Monday with Alfredo Simon (2 GS, 13.1 IP, 2.03 ERA, 2.92 FIP) looking to build on his strong start in Pittsburgh.
The Moment: Cespedes launches a first inning grand slam.
