From the press notes:

  • The Tigers last swept the Angels in Detroit in 1996. (How in the world did that team sweep anything?)
    Detroit's bullpen has an ERA of 1.11 over the past 14 games.

Notes not from the press notes:

  • Verlander has stranded just 61.5 percent of baserunners so far this season.
    Austin Jackson's BABIP is .514 entering the game
  • Adam Everett's is .189 and Gerald Laird's is .186.
