The Tigers enter this evening's game against the Orioles with just a one-game lead in the AL Central. With the Twins playing outstanding baseball right now, the Tigers must take advantage of having the Orioles (63-83) in town this weekend. They are definitely not going to get any help from the Twins or White Sox.
The Tigers need Jeremy Bonderman (11-8, 4.18) to have a quality start tonight. The last time Bonderman notched a win was July 24. Hayden Penn (0-2, 36.82) gets the start for Baltimore.
Tonight's game can be seen on FSN Detroit and heard on AM 1270.
First pitch: 7:05 p.m.
