Detroit Tigers baseball is back on Friday. The team continues the 2017 regular season, as Detroit takes on the Boston Red Sox at Comerica Park. Here’ what you need to know to watch.
Detroit Tigers players will take the field at home for the first time in 2017 on Friday.
Coming off a two-game split in Chicago against the White Sox, the Tigers will be looking to rebound at Comerica Park.
Thursday’s game got off to a decent enough start, with Tyler Collins taking James Shields deep in the second inning to give Detroit an early, one-run lead.
However, after that the White Sox piled on a combined nine runs in the second, third and fourth innings.
Chicago wouldn’t look back en route to an 11-2 victory.
While the game marked Detroit’s first loss of the season, the team will look to get back to winning ways in the familiar surroundings that are Comerica Park.
The Tigers won’t have to play the White Sox again, but they will be facing a Sox team of a different variety as the Boston Red Sox come to town.
