Last year's Cy Young Award winner, the Indians' Cliff Lee, faces this year's great big ball of confusion, the Tigers' Justin Verlander, in the rubber match of today's series between Detroit and Cleveland. If the two pitch to their potential, this game could be over by the second period of the Red Wings' game. But both have been shaky this year.

The Tigers have not won a series at home since sweeping the Rangers their opening weekend. Since then, they've split with the White Sox and dropped 2 of 3 to the Yankees. Can the Tigers reverse that trend today? We'll find out!

Let's Go Tigers!
