No 'Magic of 1984'
yet: Tigers lose, 3-1
Jeter injured in collision at third
DETROIT (AP) - Dustan Mohr
used to hate Comerica Park. Now, he
Mohr hit a two-run homer over the
ballpark's shortened left-field fence as
the Minnesota Twins and Brad Radke
shut down the Tigers 3-1 yesterday in
Alan Trammell's debut as Detroit's
"That's the fifth or sixth ball I've hit
out there, and the first time I've gotten
a homer out of it," Mohr said. "When I
hit it, I thought it was going to happen
again, so I just started running as fast
as I could. I didn't slow down until I
saw the umpire giving the signal."
During spring training, Trammell
said he would keep his first lineup card
as a keepsake.
He changed his mind.
"I'm going to keep it when we win,"
said the former star shortstop, who led
the Tigers to the 1984 World Series and
1987 AL East titles. "I hope I forget
about this one real quick."
Radke got 19 consecutive outs after
Gene Kingsale's leadoff bunt single.
Radke got the win, striking out three
and walking one over 6 2-3 innings in
his fifth consecutive Opening-Day
start, his seventh overall for Minnesota.
Dean Paher chased Radke with a two-
out RBI single.
"That's as well as you can throw a
baseball, especially at this time of the
year," Minnesota manager Ron Gar-
denhire said. "I got my first tongue-
lashing of the season when I went out
to get him. But he couldn't do much,
since I had already stolen the ball out
of his glove."
It was the third straight opening win
for the Twins, who survived baseball's
attempt to fold them after the 2001 sea-
son and won the AL Central last year.
There were 40,427 tickets sold,
which is a sellout, but there were a few
thousand empty seats for a game that
began with the temperature at 42.
Trammell and his coaches Kirk Gib-
son and Lance Parrish, both former

Eagles had won fans against Pittsburgh.
Right away, Wade and Marquette
answered any questions.
The game was over before it even
began, with Wade picking up where
he left off against Pittsburgh and
Steve Novak knocking down shots
from St. Paul. Kentucky was never in
the game after falling behind by 19 at
In the second half, Wade almost
single-handedly stopped any Ken-
tucky run. As soon as the Wildcats
would get within 15, Wade would
dunk. And dunk again. (I thought the
game could've been set to the old
Dikembe Mutumbo video game com-
mercials: "Dunk on them! Dunk on
both of them!" in Dikembe voice.)
When he wasn't dunking, he'd find
an open teammate or get a needed
We didn't realize it until the end of
the game, but he finished with a very
secure triple-double - 29 points, 11
rebounds and 11 assists - for the
best tournament performance I can
Marquette represented everything
that is amazing about the NCAA
Tournament. It has been an unexpect-
ed run by an underdog, with back-to-
back outstanding games by regional
MVP Wade. Against Kentucky, the
Golden Eagles were the kind of team
that you'd root for even though you
knew it would effectively kill your
It was a wonderful experience, and
Marquette gave me everything I
wanted to see out of the NCAA Tour-
nament, even if I never did get see
my team in it.

teammates, received the loudest cheers
during pregame introductions. Most of
their players drew only polite applause.
"I wish we could've given them a lit-
tle bit more, but I do appreciate the
response," Trammell said. "The fans
have been super to me throughout for
my whole career. I don't really know
how to repay them except to give them
a better product."
While the Twins went to the playoffs
last year for the first time since 1991,
losing to World Series champion Ana-
heim in the AL championship series,
Detroit tied Tampa Bay for the worst
record in baseball at 55-106. The
Tigers, who lost their third straight
opener, are baseball's losingest team
over the past decade and haven't had a
winning season since 1993.
To make Comerica Park more hitter-
friendly, the distance from home plate
to the left-center wall was shortened
during the offseason to 370 feet, down
from 395 feet in the ballpark's first
Mohr cleared the left-field fence
against loser Mike Maroth in the sec-
ond inning for a 2-0 lead - a drive that
bounced off the old wall.
"Hopefully, they'll just tear down
that other wall; Maroth said. "But I've
got to keep a clear mind about that and
not worry about balls that go between"
Maroth gave up two runs and five
hits in seven innings with no walks and
A.J. Pierzynski homered off Jamie
Walker in the eighth.
Detroit scored in the seventh. With
runners at first and second, Palmer beat
a throw from third baseman Denny
Hocking on a soft grounder, and
Infante came around. Palmer's previous
hit was on June 24, 2001, also against
the Twins. He was limited to just 12 at-
bats last season due to neck and shoul-
J.C. Romero allowed one hit in 1 1-3
innings, and Eddie Guardado pitched a
perfect ninth for the save.
TORONTO (AP) - Derek Jeter,
the heart and soul of the Yankees,
was knocked out of New York's
opener last night with a dislocated
left shoulder after a violent collision
at third base with Toronto catcher
Jeter was down for more than 10
minutes, writhing in pain and sur-
rounded by worried teammates. He
was helped onto a cart by trainers
Gene Monahan and Steve Donohue,
strapped in place sitting upright and
taken off the field - his head bent,
his face dripping with sweat.
The shoulder was popped back in
place and Jeter was taken to a hospi-
tal for X-rays.
There was no immediate word on
how long New York would be with-
out the five-time All-Star, the Yan-
kee's leader during their run of four
World Series titles since 1996.
Jeter was on first base with one
out in the third inning when Jason
Giambi hit a grounder to pitcher Roy
Halladay, who threw to first for the
out. With no one covering third base,
Jeter didn't stop and aggressively
tried for the extra base.
Huckaby ran up the line to field
first baseman Carlos Delgado's
throw. Jeter dived headfirst into the
bag, and Huckaby fell, his shin guard
driving into Jeter's shoulder.
Jeter immediately began writhing
as Yankees' trainers, teammates and
manager Joe Torre gathered around.
Physicians Erin Boynton and Ron
Taylor of the Blue Jays also came out
to help Jeter, while Huckaby watched
anxiously from the dugout with a
towel in his mouth.
Jeter was called out on the play
because he fell off the base when he

Jeter hit a career-low .297 last sea-
son with 18 homers and 75 RBI.
Jeter has said part of his problems
could have been caused by a shoulder
injury that prevented him from doing
upper-body work in 2001 and 2002.
