Trivia
The Tigers' 16 runs are the most in a park's first game (minimum 300 games) and the 16-run margin of victory is the largest. Chicago White Sox pitcher Mark Buerhle threw the first two no-hitters at U.S. Cellular Field, making him the only pitcher to toss the first two no-hitters at an active park. All three no-hitters at U.S. Cellular Field were thrown by southpaws. Tigers teammates Tony Phillips and Alan Trammell had four hits each in the first game at U.S. Cellular Field, becoming the only teammates with four hits in a park's first game. Kevin Romine, who hit the first grand slam at U.S. Cellular Field, hit only five home runs in his career and the grand slam was his last. He also holds the distinction of having the fewest career home runs among those who hit a park's first grand slam (tied with Rollie Zeider).
