Game 2010.133: Tigers at Twins

Congrats to Max St. Pierre for a well deserved call-up after 14 minor league seasons.

Seay is likely out for 2011…ouch.  And on to tonight’s game.

Tigers have their work cut out for them tonight versus Liriano.  Liriano is 3-0 in august, with a 3.68 ERA, but a pedestrian 1.44 WHIP (compared to 1.27 on the year).  He averages 9.37 Ks/9 against just over 3 walks per 9.  His fastball is great, and his slider is devastating as the OPP BA against it is only .164.  Though the Tigers have had his number this year.  He’s 1-2 with a  7.47 ERA against the boys this season.

Scherzer has been nails as of late.  He has won his last three decisions allowing only 2 ER in 21 IPs, while striking out 22 and only walking 5.  Since the AS Break, he’s posted a 1.98 ERA and 7 quality starts in 9 outings.
