Tigers 6, Orioles 5
Chris Tillman gave up five runs over six innings on Monday against the Tigers. (AP)
The Orioles went to work early in the opener, scoring five runs in the first inning on the strength of a Brian Roberts leadoff homer and RBI hits from Ty Wigginton and Luke Scott. The offense dried up the rest of the way as Chris Tillman continues to look for his first big league win.
