Game 2015.27: Tigers at White Sox

The Tigers looked like they were heading for a losing series in Kansas City, until a complete game gem by David Price and 5 innings or perfect game to start Sunday’s game by Anibal Sanchez led them back to what turned out to be a satisfying series split.

For Detroit Tigers fans of a certain age, a fast start to the regular season is nothing new.  In 1984 the Motor City Kitties rocketed out to a 35-5 record through the first 40 games, a feat which has never been duplicated.
