Dontrelle Willis: 'I Wish I Could Have Played Better Here'

New, 1 comment

Friday night was Dontrelle Willis's return to Detroit, as the Arizona Diamondbacks visited Comerica Park for a weekend series. He gave up five runs in five innings, getting no decision in a 7-5 loss to the Tigers.

The D-Train got a decent, if unnotable, ovation from the crowd. But what could really be expected? Regardless, Willis appreciated his time in Detroit, and wishes it could've gone differently.

"Everybody was nice to me, and maybe that was surprising," Willis said. "I have a lot of respect for this city. The guys (Tigers) do a good job of playing hard for the city, so the fans see I'm out there working hard, too, regardless of what the result is.

"I wish I could have played better here (as a Tiger), but I wish those guys all the best."

We wish you'd have played better here too, D-Train. Believe us.
