9/17 Baltimore Orioles @ Detroit Tigers

It wasn't easy, but the Tigers were able to scratch out a 2-0 victory over the Orioles last night. Nate Robertson pitched eight stellar innings and Todd Jones pitched a perfect ninth inning to get his 36th save.

A win this afternoon would give the Tigers their first 90-win season since 1987. It would also be quite nice to head to Chicago tomorrow with a three-game winning streak.

Wilfredo Ledezma (2-3, 3.13) will get the start for Detroit this afternoon. Ledezma will face the Orioles' Daniel Cabrera (7-10, 4.84).

The game can be seen on TV 20 in Detroit and heard on AM 1270.

First pitch: 1:05 p.m.
