The Tigers are going for another sweep this afternoon, and if they could just score some runs for Jeremy Bonderman, it's entirely possible. Four of his last five starts have been quality starts (everyone's favorite stat!), so look for him to try to build on that.
Atilano's numbers are somewhat similar to Bondo's aside from slightly less innings and more wins; apparently he has been getting luckier in the run support department. A first rounder for the Braves in 2003, this is his rookie year in the majors and he has never faced any Tigers (except maybe in spring training, I don't remember).
