Today is the misfit 1-game make-up series with the Blue Jays, at the misfit game time of 6:05. At least the Tigers don’t have to travel for the one-day trip like the Blue Jays do.
We’ll make this short today, as befits a one-game series. Max Scherzer takes the mound for Detroit. Scherzer leads the team in run support, so maybe we can have some more offensive fun like yesterday. The Jays counter with rookie Zach Stewart (0-1, 5.91). (Warning! we have had problems with Rookie Guy in the past).
Today’s Player of the Pre-Game: Andy Dirks
We haven’t seen the Dirks much lately; let’s see how he does in the leadoff spot. At least he is less likely to K.
