Scott Baker (0-1, 3.00) takes on Justin Verlander (0-1, 6.75). Both pitchers were called up after this afternoon's game. Verlander takes the spot of Kevin Hooper. Kevin, so long, it was nice to know ya.
I'm at my parents' place in Michigan where you'd think I could watch the games, but they have no cable and the Tigers couldn't get on broadcast TV. Game 1, by its boxscore, was notable for three reasons:
- Curtis Granderson's first career home run, a game winner.
- Yet another strong outing for Sean Douglass. Perhaps other teams should start to scout this guy.
- A walk surrendered by Carlos Silva, only his seventh in 130 innings.
