PREGAME: It will be Justin Verlander taking on Scott Baker at the Metrodome tonight.
Baker faced the Tigers once and he limited the Tigers to 3 runs over 7 innings before the explosion. On the season Baker is striking out more than 5 batters for every walk he issues. Baker has allowed 6 homers but they’ve all been solo.
Verlander has one quality start on the season. Now would be a good time for a second.
Game Time 7:10
POSTGAME: Well, Verlander pitched pretty good. Marcus Thames made some nice plays. Curtis Granderson had a real nice at-bat culminating in a home run (only the second run of the series for Detroit). That’s it for highlights. Again. Ergh. Three games below .500 again. Ergh.
