Apr 4, 2005 - The Detroit Tigers defeat the Kansas City Royals‚ 11-2‚ as Dmitri Young drives in five runs while becoming the third player in history to hit three homers on opening day.

Jul 2, 2002 - The White Sox batter the Tigers 17-9. The two teams combined to hit a ML record-tying 12 HRs 6 apiece in the contest matching the record they set together on May 28 1995. Dmitri Young and Magglio Ordonez connect for a deuce with Magglio's 2nd a grand slam. Todd Richie gives up 5 runs in 7 innings for the win.
May 19, 2002 - The Detroit Tigers stage a unique promotion-a octopus-throwing contest in honor of the Stanley Cup Western Conference Championship Series which began yesterday at Detroit's Joe Louis Arena. Throwing boiled octopi on the ice is a hockey tradition in Detroit. Each participant in the Tigers' contest threw the octopi at a target with the winner getting a limo ride to the nearby Arena and tickets to the second game of the Conference Championship. Tiger pitchers Jeff Weaver and Matt Anderson try their luck along with fifty fans but neither pitcher hits his target. The Rangers must've thought they were hitting octopus as they lose the game 2-1. Greisinger allows one run in 6 2/3 innings and Dmitri Young's homer in the 4th snaps a 1-1 tie.
Jun 29, 2001 - The Cubs defeat the Reds 7-1 behind Jose Alcevedo's 1st ML win. Cincinnati OF Dmitri Young gets 4 hits for the second straight game giving him 9 consecutive safeties.

The Reds set a NL record by hitting 9 HRs in the contest-2 by C Eddie Taubensee and 1 apiece by Aaron Boone Dmitri Young Jeffrey Hammonds Greg Vaughn Pokey Reese Brian Johnson and Mark Lewis. The 8 different players going deep is a ML record. Chad Ogea in 2 2/3 innings allows 3 dingers; he has now served up a league high 35. Stan Belinda of the Reds earns a save for Pete Harnisch (14-8); he benefits from the rule that mandates a save be awarded if a pitcher works three innings in relief.
Jun 21, 1998 - The Cincinnati Reds start an outfield against the Astros of Dmitri Young Mike Frank and Chris Stynes. Yup for you movie buffs that would be Young Frank and Stynes. It is still a horror for the Reds as they lose their 8th straight 4-2. Pete Schourek is the CG winner. The losing streak will reach 10 as the Royals will win the next 2.
