PREGAME: The Tigers enter the 2nd third of the season still looking for their first win against the Indians. Given the crappiness of the last week, it is still pretty surprising that the Tigers are on pace to win 90 games which is about what I expected. Plus they are still the wild card team. And they’ve done it with a number of injuries. As dark as the last week has been, the season is far from over.
As for tonight’s game, it will be Chad Durbin taking on Cliff Lee. Lee has been quite hittable this year, and has only lasted past the 6th inning one time this year.
Craig Monroe is out tonight with Marcus Thames playing left. Pudge Rodriguez returns to the lineup and Brandon Inge and Carlos Guillen are still out.
