Buck Farmer is going to be difficult to get out of the rotation at this rate: that’s two starts for Farmer now, and he has yet to give up a run, and the Tigers finally got that elusive shutout.
The only real lowlight of the game came when Nick Castellanos added to his impressive season blooper reel by smacking Miggy in the face with his batting helmet.
Michael Fulmer, uncharacteristically, gave up plenty of runs last time out. Today he gets a chance to make up for that and give the Tigers a series win before they head off to Boston.
Today’s Rubber Game Lineup:
- Ian Kinsler, 2B
- Alex Avila, C
- Miguel Cabrera, 1B
- Victor Martinez, DH
- JD Martinez, RF
- Justin Upton, LF
- Nick Castellanos, 3B
- Andrew Romine, CF
- Dixon Machado, SS
Pitching: Michael Fulmer vs JC Ramirez
