Stuff that happened:
- The Indians scored a run on two hits just four pitches into Rick Porcello's outing. Porcello stranded Jason Kipnis to end the first inning.
- The Tigers loaded the bases with one out in the bottom of the first, but Indians starter Carlos Carrasco wiggled out of trouble without allowing a run.
- Andy Dirks drove in a two-out RBI in the second inning to even the score at 1. Prince Fielder's bases loaded double gave the Tigers a 4-1 lead.
Thread stuff that happened:
- Lots of horrible rhymes. Don't quit your day jobs, people.
- Old movie references
- Squirrel sacrifices
