Detroit Tigers, 31-34, 4 games behind Chicago.
The Tigers evened up the series with the Rockies, as Miguel Cabrera got the rare double (Home Run plus Little League Home Run), and Doug Fister came back strong with his first victory of the season. (His next start should be Friday).
The Tigers look to take their 3rd consecutive IL series in today’s Father’s Day rubber game. And dammit they are going to get this one.
On the mound for Detroit will be the enigmatic Max Daddy, Max Scherzer, against the struggling righty Jeremy Guthrie (3-5, 6.91). The righty on the mound means we will be treated to the Jacksonberry lineup.
Colorado would just as soon see Interleague season end. They are one 10th-inning clown show from being winless in IL this year.
Stat of the Day: Miguel Cabrera leads all active Tigers with 1 LLHR.
Today’s Player of the Pre-game: Quintin Berry. Q-Berry gets a rare start, and is itching to try his hand at one of those LLHRs.
Today’s Who’s-On-Third? Lineup:
- Austin Jackson CF
- Quintin Berry LF
- Miguel Cabrera DH
- Prince Fielder 1B
- Brennan Boesch RF
