The Detroit Tigers became the first team ever to score atleast 5 runs in three straight games in the first inning of the game....if that was not enough the following night they gave up 7 runs to Cleveland in the first inning...

thanks to msnbc for the following short write up
CLEVELAND - The Detroit Tigers have done everything much faster than expected this season.
On Monday night, they made history in a hurry.
With a five-run first inning, Detroit became the first team in 115 years to score at least five runs in the first at-bat of three straight games, and the Tigers held on for a 9-7 win over the Cleveland Indians.

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.
“I don’t think it’s impressive,” Tigers manager Jim Leyland said. “I think it’s weird. It’s hard to believe that it hasn’t happened before. What is that, 115 years? That’s hard to believe

He wont get ROY honors becuase a little guy who they call Jonathan Papelbon that guy is amazing 51 innings only 3 Earned Runs or 3 Runs. He should be considered for Cy Young but sadly he probably wont.

Detroit gets very little respect from the press and usually they are looking to bash the city....Verlander has no chance

Detroit can't beat the good teams. The beat the teams that will not be in the playoffs and lose to the teams that will be.

Sox gonna repeat!

Being a Red Sox fan I thought Papelbon was a lock for ROY but right now Liriano and Verlander are a little ahead. If they prove they are human though he could get back into the race
