The Tigers lose 3-2 stranding a couple runners in the eighth and ninth and without having Ryan Raburn pinch hit. Bonderman allowed two home runs. The runner that scored the third run reached on a HBP.
This was the first day the Tigers allowed season ticket holders to enter at 5:00 on weekday night games. This means that early arriving season ticket holders are the only ones who can get the balls that land in the stands. Most fans stayed in left field as the Tiger perhaps intended. My daughter circled the stadium through the seats to right field. As the only one in right field she got all four balls that landed there. Later she also convinced one of the Perezes in the Indians bullpen to toss her a fifth ball.
