Detroit Tigers fans saw another victory at Comerica Park on Saturday.

A day after a thrilling and eventful home-opener win, the Tigers notched a 4-1 win against the Boston Red Sox to kick off the weekend.

Detroit only managed five hits on the day, but the team also added five walks to give the team plenty of base runners.

On the pitching side of things, Jordan Zimmermann turned in a strong outing, while the bullpen kept Boston in check to finish out the win.

Here are some observations from the game, which saw the Tigers improve the team’s record to 3-1 on the young season.

Jordan Zimmermann Was Excellent

Speaking of the veteran starting pitcher, Jordan Zimmermann started things on the right foot on Saturday.

The former National retired the first three batters in Boston’s lineup—Brock Holt, Dustin Pedroia and Andrew Benintendi—on just nine pitches.

Zimmermann would go onto fire off six innings, surrendering just four hits, one run and a walk. He punched out three in his first start of the season.
