The Tigers certainly took advantage of a blustery day in the Windy City yesterday. They scored two runs in the first inning off deep sacrifice flys and never looked back eventually winning 5-3.
This afternoon's game will see Justin Verlander (7-4, 3.32) face the Cubs' Carlos Marmol (1-0, 0.90).
Marmol was called up from the Cubs minor league system when Scott Williamson was placed on the DL earlier this month. In his first major league start for the Cubs, Carlos only gave up one run on two hits.
The game will be televised on TV 20 in Detroit and also broadcast on AM 1270.
First pitch: 4:05 p.m.
