Raburn gets the start ahead of Inge at third (which was foreshadowed yesterday), Polanco finally comes back after a bout with the flu and Maybin gets the day off.

The suprising Carmona is 2-0 against the Tigers this year with a 3.86 ERA. His last start overall came against Detroit -- a 5-2 Indians win -- with him pitching eight innings and only giving up four hits. In that game he was opposed by Jurrjens, who was making his first major league start.
