Tigers Trounce the Defending AL Champs
The streaky hitting of the Detroit Tigers continued Monday night, this time against last year's American League Central Division champs.
Tyler Collins led the charge by crushing a three-run homer in the second inning to pace the Tigers over the Cleveland Indians 7-1 in the opener of a four-game series. Victor Martinez had three hits on the night and Alex Avila drove in two runs for the Tigers' second straight win.
Edwin Encarnacion had two hits and drove in the Indians run in the loss.
