Can the Tigers win one flippin’ series to close out this road trip? We find out tonight!
Interestingly, Alex Avila gets a start against the lefty Jose Quintana. So does Nick Castellanos as the Tigers continue to study whether he’d be a reliable platoon option against lefties in the postseason. And while all the caveats about how little wins matter still do apply, a win for Anibal Sanchez tonight would be his 14th of the season and set a new career high (turns out run support is hard to come by with the Marlins sometimes).
Lastly, a win would clinch a 4-5 road trip, which isn’t awful considering how the Tigers looked during portions of it.
