The Houston Astros take on the Detroit Tigers in Lakeland this afternoon. Our intrepid managing editor (who was complaining it was so cold the heat was turned on in the press box) is once again covering the game from Joker Marchant Stadium.

Dan Dickerson and Jim Price will be on-air this afternoon. Locally, WXYT-FM, 97.1 the Ticket has the broadcast audio. The radio call for both teams is available on MLB.TV.
