Nice come-from-behind win for the Tigers on opening day. We got a little taste of the Ausmus style. He stuck with Alex Gonzales to the end of the game even though our new shortstop was booed earlier in the game. As it turned out, Gonzales, at the plate, was the hero of the day as he hit a walk-off single in the bottom of the 9th which enabled pinch runner, Tyler Collins--who in the heck is he????--to score the winning run. This was Ausmus's other aggressive move: With the scored tied in the 9th, Brad took out Avila, the catcher, to get some speed with a pinch runner. This is something Leyland would rarely do. To beat a good team such as Kansas City felt good.
Maybe we should have a new thread: 2014 MLB
