Royals Drop Season Opener In Detroit

Associated Press - March 31, 2014 9:46 pm

DETROIT (AP) – Alex Gonzalez drove in the winning run in his Detroit debut, lining a single to left off Greg Holland in the ninth inning that gave the Tigers a 4-3 opening day victory over the Kansas City Royals   Monday.

Acquired by Detroit following an injury to shortstop Jose Iglesias, Gonzalez made a costly error in Kansas City’s three run fourth, but made up for that with a tying triple in the seventh. He then singled with men on first and third in the ninth.

Joe Nathan (1-0) pitched a scoreless ninth in his first appearance for the Tigers.

Wade Davis (0-1) allowed a one out walk to Alex Avila and a single to Nick Castellanos in the ninth. Holland couldn’t escape the jam.
