On this date in 2009, The D-Train Notches 1st Tigers Win

Dontrelle Willis wins his first game in 20 months and his first in a Tigers uniform as the Tigers shut out the Rangers, 4-0.

The D-Train allowed only one hit — a double to Michael Young — in six and a third innings, and retired 17 batters in a row at one point and snapped the Rangers’ seven-game winning streak.
