Game 44: Rangers (23-24) @ Tigers (27-16)

The Tigers hope to bounce back from a dismal performance on Thursday. The starters have taken it on the chin the last turn through the rotation, and look to Anibal Sánchez (1-2, 2.89 ERA) to right the ship. The Tigers will go up against LHP Scott Baker (1-1, 3.38 ERA), attempting an MLB comeback after missing all of 2012 and appearing in only three games in 2013.

The Rangers will be without slugging first baseman Prince Fielder for this series and perhaps the rest of the season, as he’ll need surgery to repair a herniated disk.
