News@noon: Buddy's buddies, Tigers squeak by, Trump in trouble

The Detroit News

Today is Wednesday, April 6, 2016, and the Tigers squeaked out an 11th-inning win last night over the Marlins in the season opener. Justin Verlander singled at bat and flirted with no-hitter, and things looked good until a closer collapse.

So the question of the day is: What can be done about the Tigers bullpen? Let us know in the comments or tweet us @detroitnews

Latest in Bashara case

  • A fellow inmate of the handyman who admitted killing Jane Bashara testified Tuesday that Joseph Gentz told him and others that he acted alone in the 2012 murder of the Grosse Pointe Park woman. In an affidavit the inmate helped him type up, Gentz admits to killing Jane Bashara on his own because he was mad that her husband had not paid him for odd jobs done at Robert Bashara’s rental properties.
