Max Scherzer allowed two runs in six innings earlier this season when he faced the Mariners all the way back on April 18. He's also allowed three earned runs or fewer his past four starts.

The Mariners have had the Tigers' number this year. They've also been hot recently, winners of nine of their past 13. But they are finally visiting Comerica Park and are entering the final series of a nine-game road trip.

Doug Fister takes the mound for Seattle and brings some pretty impressive numbers with him: a .99 WHIP and a 2.81 ERA. He doesn't issue a lot of walks, but he doesn't miss a lot of bats either. But don't read too much into it. His expected numbers (fangraphs) are a lot higher than the results he's been getting so he could take a step back at any point. Hopefully tonight is that point.

Lineup update:

Miguel Cabrera was a late scratch with tightness in his back. Magglio Ordonez will bat fourth in his place.
