Game One of a Doubleheader

Tigers vs. Royals
The Detroit Tigers made up a game that was rained out back in April against the Kansas City Royals Friday afternoon at Comerica Park. It was game one of what is known as a split double header. The teams played an early game (1:08 pm start) and then played again in the evening (7:08 pm start).
Unfortunately, the Tigers lost both games! Detroit Video Daily was on hand to witness the first loss.

Pitchers' Duel
The Tiger pitching ace Justin Verlander pitched a great game, but he had no offensive support and ended up losing. He only allowed two runs, but that was enough to beat the Tigers incredibly silent bats. Danny Duffy the pitcher for the Royals held the normally powerful Tigers to only one hit through five and two thirds innings. Later Ramon Santiago smacked a home run against the KC relief pitcher Aaron Crow giving the Tigers their only run.

Game Photos and Video
Despite the loss DVD was able to snap some photos and shoot some video. Be forewarned Tiger fans, the video is tough to watch because it shows baseball's greatest hitter Miguel Cabrera striking out in the ninth inning. All in all it was still good to go to the ball park and take in some baseball on a beautiful afternoon.
