Kurt's addition:

The Tigers begin their final home series of the season, needing a pair of wins to match the record of 51 set last season.

If you're in the Detroit area, you should try to get to a game. As Lynn Henning wrote earlier today, it could be the final time you have the opportunity to see Brandon Inge, Jeremy Bonderman, Gerald Laird or others wearing the home uniform.

Tigers pitchers need just 10 more strikeouts to hit the magical number 1,000 for just the 11th time in franchise history. So that will probably happen over the weekend. Or tonight, considering that the scowly face at the top of the game thread is Detroit's starter.

Three is the magic number. At least I've heard anyway. Miguel Cabrera needs three more intentional walks this season to match Ted Williams' American League record of 34 set in 1957. Brandon Inge is three shy of the franchise lead in strikeouts in roughly half the bats of the current leader, Lou Whitaker, who has 1099.
