Quick hits

• Austin Jackson failed to reach base leading off the first inning for the Tigers on Sunday for the first time all season, flying out to center field. Jackson had reached base in each of Detroit's first five games, including Saturday on a Jayson Nix error.

• Sunday's 39,829 tickets sold brought the total for the three-game series to 127,333. It's the Tigers' largest attendance for a home-opening series since 1961, when 135,768 flocked to Tiger Stadium to watch Detroit take on Cleveland.
