The Tigers hope to avoid the sweep today -- words you always hate writing -- when Max Scherzer makes his third start of his Tigers' career. He has never faced Seattle.
From the media notes:
- Miguel Cabera turns 27 today.
- A lot of notes about how well the Tigers hit against the Mariners and AL West. Uhm ...
- The Tigers have turned 14 double plays in the club’s first 11 games of the season, tied for second in the AL.
- Austin Jackson has hit safely in nine of 10 games this season and leads all major league rookies with 14 hits this season. He is second with four doubles and tied for sixth with four RBI.
