5 Stats from the Detroit Tigers 5-4 Loss vs the Cleveland Indians

  • Five

The number of innings thrown by Justin Verlander in his season debut. The former Cy Young/MVP winner allowed three hits, two runs (both earned), struck out two and walked two batters. He allowed one home run on 87 pitches.

  • Two

The number of runs allowed by Tigers reliever Blaine Hardy. Like Verlander, Hardy allowed two runs. Unlike Verlander, Hardy only threw a third of an inning. The former Royals farmhand took the loss in relief.

  • Seven

The difference between the Tigers hitters’ collective strikeout total (12) and the Indians’ (5). This had a lot to do with the final outcome of the game as Detroit left 10 runners on base.
