Tuesday: Tigers at Angels

The line about how it never rains in Southern California isn’t ringing true today. Not only had I never seen it rain here in eight years covering this team, I had never even seen a day where the Tigers couldn’t take batting practice outside. They might hit indoors before a day game, but not because they had to. Today, they hit inside on a dreary afternoon, but they’re going to get the game in.

When they do, Ryan Raburn is at second base, giving Scott Sizemore the night off.
