GIF: Alex Gonzalez hits walk-off single, Tigers win on Opening Day

Rick Osentoski-USA TODAY Sports

Gonzalez also hit a triple but that GIF doesn't look as cool.

Alex Gonzalez didn't exactly make anyone forget Jose Iglesias in the field today, but he atoned for his gaffes with a pair of huge hits late in the game to give the Tigers a 4-3 Opening Day win. Unfortunately, triples don't really translate into GIFs well (and it's late and I'm tired), so you're probably better off just watching the video.

Later, Gonzalez lined a single to left with the Royals' infield playing in, scoring Tyler Collins to push the Tigers' record to a perfect 1-0.
