What a tough loss. The offense put up a good fight, though. One has to be optimistic that fiery new manager Jim Leyland will keep the Tigers from sulking for too long. Hopefully recovering from defeats like last night's will become part of the identity Leyland is hoping the Tigers will develop.
Today's game features the Tigers best pitcher thus far Mike Maroth (4-1, 1.78) facing off against one of the game's best pitchers Johan Santana (2-3, 3.89).
This afternoon's game will be televised on Fox Sports Detroit and also broadcast on AM 1270. It's a big game. A win today will give the Tigers a road series victory over a division rival. So, tune in for this one.
First pitch is at 2:10 p.m.
