The weather in Detroit recently has been hot as the Tigers were in the first half of the season. The Tigers rallied several times last night to ultimately win on a walk-off homerun by Carlos Guillen. With the White Sox' loss this afternoon, a Tigers' win tonight could extend their lead in the AL Central to 4.5 games.
Tonight's game features Justin Verlander (10-4, 3.01) facing off against the Royals' Jimmy Gobble (3-2, 4.32).
The game can be seen on FSN Detroit and heard on AM 1270.
First pitch: 7:05 p.m.
