Blue Jays 5, Tigers 4

- Despite the loss, Tigers fans have to be pleased with the effort of newcomer Edwin Jackson. One run over 7 1/3 innings usually puts your team in a pretty darn good position to win baseball games.
- It’s deja vu all over again with this bullpen. I was one of those who thought Brandon Lyon looked pretty damn unreliable in spring training, and it sure showed tonight as he gacked up a win for the Tigers. We’ve seen this before (ex: 2008) and, even though it’s early, it’s hard to ignore the signs pointing towards all things NOT being ok in the bullpen.
- A night after unruly fans threw baseballs at Tigers outfielder Josh Anderson, beer and alcohol sales were banned after the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario suspended the liquor license of the Rogers Centre because of past infractions. Attendance was more than 30,000 fewer than Monday’s season opener.
Probable pitchers for 4/8:
- Tigers – Zach Miner (0-0, 0.00 ERA)
- Blue Jays – Jesse Litch (0-0, 0.00 ERA)
