DETROIT (AP) -The $138 million Tigers opened with a thud.
Tony Pena Jr. hit a two-out, tiebreaking single in the 11th inning and the Kansas City Royals held on to beat Detroit 5-4 in Monday's opener.
Rays 6, Orioles 2
BALTIMORE (AP) - A whirlwind offseason of change carried over into opening day for Tampa Bay, when the Rays reversed an annoying trend at the expense of the Baltimore Orioles.
James Shields pitched seven innings of five-hit ball, Eric Hinske homered and the Rays coasted to a 6-2 victory Monday.
Since its inception in 1998, Tampa Bay was 1-9 in road openers, including a seven-game skid that was the longest active run in the big leagues. But things are different this year, beginning with the team's nickname - no longer are they the Devil Rays.
Indians 10, White Sox 8
CLEVELAND (AP) - Their ballpark may have a new name. Little else changed about the Cleveland Indians.
The defending AL Central champions won in familiar fashion at Progressive Field - home to so much late-inning drama when it was called Jacobs Field for the past 14 years. Casey Blake hit a three-run double in the eighth inning Monday to give the Indians a 10-8 season-opening win over the Chicago White Sox.
Twins 3, Angels 2
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - With Torii Hunter watching from the other side, Carlos Gomez made a strong first impression in Minnesota.
Gomez formally replaced Hunter as the center fielder and raced around the bases, giving Livan Hernandez and the Twins enough offense to beat the Los Angeles Angels 3-2 Monday night with a snowstorm swirling outside the Metrodome.
Mariners 5, Rangers 2
SEATTLE (AP) - After Erik Bedard left his Mariners' debut, the Seattle offense woke up.
Adrian Beltre hit a go-ahead groundout in the sixth inning, Jose Lopez had a two-run double in the seventh and the Mariners beat the Texas Ranger s 5-2 in Monday's opener.
