The 1901 Detroit Tigers's season was their first in the newly formed American League. The Detroit Tigers finished in third place with a record or 74-61, eight-and-a-half games behind the Chicago White Stockings. The Detroit Tigers's first game in franchise history featured the team scoring 10 runs in the bottom of the ninth inning to defeat the Milwaukee Brewers. Led by the team's first 20-game winner, Roscoe Miller (23-13), the team had the third best team ERA (3.30) in the American League. Joe Yeager had an ERA of 2.61, for the second best Adjusted ERA+ in the AL behind Cy Young. The offense was not as strong, scoring 741 runs --fifth among the eight teams in the league.
