The Tigers (50-51) remain out on the west coast as they face the red hot Oakland Athletics (55-46) this evening. Sean Douglass (3-0), who has been a very pleasant surprise in the Tigers rotation thus far, gets the start tonight against the Athletics young hurler Rich Harden (8-4) and his miniscule 2.28 ERA. Douglass is coming off a VERY good start against the Twinkies last Saturday, going seven innings and only giving up one run on five hits. He has only given up more than one run once in five starts.
The game time is 10:05 eastern and can be seen on FSN Detroit.
