Jason Johnson (5-7) will take the mound for the Tigers (43-45) tonight as they try and take the advantage in this 4 game series with the Kansas City Royals (31-58). KC will send out J.P. Howell (1-3) and his 8+ ERA to face the Tigers lineup, which has been pretty potent as of late. Lets hope the bats come alive once again and the Tigers can take this Saturday evening game. The word is that Da Meat Hook will start his second straight game in left field, as Rondell White is still suffering some soreness in his throwing arm.
Game time is 7:05 and can be seen once again on FSN Detroit and heard on WXYT 1270.
And on a side note, congrats to Raffy Palmeiro for his achievement in joining the 3000 hit club.
