Hidden: Bonderman stays unbeaten on road, Tigers make history.: According to the Elias Sports Bureau, the Tigers are the first team since the 1891 St. Louis Browns of the American Association to score five runs or more in the first inning of three consecutive games.

They have been saying for years around here to "Restore the Roar". They meant the Lions, but we'll easily take the Tigers! Rooaaarrrr! Nice job boys, and keep it running!

I find it kind of cool that a smallish feat like this has stood for 115 years. We're only talking about three games in a row here, and frankly, is kind of underwhelming. However, it has stood for all these years. Neat.

/still frowning We're only talking about three games in a row here, and frankly, is kind of underwhelming. How many games per year open with a five run inning? A pretty small percentage. So that small percentage cubed is gotta be small indeed.
