What I believe to be the biggest story of the spring for the Tigers got off to a good start today -- Jeremy Bonderman pitched two scoreless innings and struckout three. He gave up a single and a walk to open the game but then retired the next six in a row. They seemed to have abbreviated Lynn Hennings' article but he wrote in an earlier version that Bonderman's fastball looked like the fastball of 2006-2007. He also said that Bonderman threw some split finger fastballs. There are no reports on his velocity as of yet.
The Tigers scored two runs in the ninth to top the Jays 7-6. Brent Dlugach started at shortstop and collected a single and a homer. Wilkin Ramirez and audy Ciriaco added two hits apiece. The complete box score can be found here.
The other piece of news of interest was that Scott Sizemore started and apparently felt no ill effects from his ankle injury. A broken ankle is a serious injury especially for a middle infielder so today was encouraging. The next test might be to see if he can play consecutive days without pain.
