Armando Galarraga pitches for the Tigers tonight, but if the bats can’t get something going it doesn’t really make that much of a difference does it? The Tigers will face the reanimated Fausto Carmona.
Carmona has his walk rate under 5 for the first time since 2007 and his ERA has followed suit. Unfortunately for the Tigers he is another sinker ball pitcher, the kind they haven’t fared well against at all of late.
Galarraga makes his first start since being anointed the 5th starter with the dismissal of Dontrelle Willis.
