Tigers, Royals Play 12 to Settle Game 1, Detroit Now Leads Series 1-0
One game in and the Division Series is already looking exhausting.

The Detroit Tigers and the Kansas City Royals needed 12 innings to settle Game 1, with the Tigers finally taking the 3-2 victory at Kauffman Stadium. Excelling in the win was Detroit starting pitcher Lucas Giolito, who threw 7.0 innings of 5-hit ball. The Tigers and Royals are playing a best-of-5 series.

Xander Bogaerts hit a solo home run off Ryan Pressly in the top of the 12th, which put the Tigers ahead, 3-2. In addition to the homer, Bogaerts had 1 single and 1 double, while going 3 for 6.

"If I go out there and help the team win, that's all you can do," said Giolito.

The next game is set to be played tomorrow at Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City.
