The Tigers opened up their exhibition season with a game versus the Florida Southern Moccasins. The Tigers gave a glimpse of their powerful offense with early homers by Placido Polanco, Miguel Cabrera, Brandon Inge and Scott Sizemore. It's 2:00 PM and the Tigers are currently up 6-4 in the third inning. You can check out the game action at the Florida Southern site. More later.

3:30 update: The Tigers are up 15-4 in the 8th. Lakeland correspondent Deran went to the game and has some awesome pictures.

Final Score: Tigers 17 Florida Southern 4

Along with the homers mentioned above, the following hitters had big days: Michael Hollimon (double, triple, 4 RBI), Freddie Guzman (single, double, triple), Jeff Larish (2 for 2 with 2 walks). Hollimon and Guzman have outside shots at making the opening day roster. We may see Larish in Detroit late in the year or next year. Todd Jones pitched a scoreless first inning. Jordan Tata was wild walking 3 batters and giving up all four runs in 1 2/3 innings.
