Those of you teetering on the ledge, step back for a second. Tonight’s game is the 24th in 25 days for the Tigers. Of those 24 games, 19 (!) have been on the road. If the Tigers are able to win this evening, they will be 10-14 in this brutal stretch. They have already shelled Beckett once this season, so a second go-round isn’t out of the question.
