Looking To Gain Ground

Tonight is a big, big night in the baseball town of Detroit, Michigan.
The Detroit Tigers (83-72) are planning to put more distance between
them and the Minnesota Twins (81-74) at Comerica Park. It is a four
game series that will have all of the excitement and thrills of playoff
baseball. Heck, it is pretty much like a playoff series. Even the
weather in Detroit today feels like playoff weather.

The Tigers, up by two games, are looking for their first ever Central Division title. Tonight, they need to put the hurt
on a Twins team that has steadily kept pace this season. A win will put
them on solid footing going into the three remaining games.

Don’t forget that this is a team that has played exceptionally well at home in 2009. Let’s go and get ’em!

Tonight’s pitching match up features Rick Porcello (14-9, 4.14 ERA,
1.35 WHIP) against Nick Blackburn (11.11, 4.18 ERA, 1.41 WHIP).

UPDATE!

Tonight’s game with the Minnesota Twins has been postponed because of
rain. The game will be made up at 12:05ET tomorrow (Tuesday, September
29) as part of a day/night doubleheader. Tickets from tonight’s game
will be honored for the first game only.

Porcello/Blackburn will pitch in the first game. Verlander/Duensing will duel in the nightcap.
