Los Angeles 8, Detroit Tigers 5: The better team won

Los Angeles 8, Detroit Tigers 5: The better team won

Detroit played sloppily and lost the first game of the three-game series You had to assume, when you saw that the Detroit Tigers were facing the Los Angeles Dodgers, that the series would not go well for the home team.
