April 10, 1968 at Tiger Stadium
Red Sox 7, Tigers 3 (0-1)
The Tigers lost their home opener against the defending American League champs. The Red Sox got to Earl Wilson early to the tune of five runs in five innings and both Pat Dobson and Daryl Patterson were touched up for a piece as well.
Wilson did help out his own cause with the stick though and he belted the Tigers only homer, a solo shot in the third inning. Mickey Stanley had a team high three hits while Willie Horton went two for three with a double and an RBI.
