Wednesday: Tigers vs. Mariners

If you’re detecting a pattern in the Tigers lineup against left-handed starters, you would be right. With the exception of Avila catching, it’s the same lineup that went up against Erik Bedard last Wednesday in Seattle. And it’s the exact same lineup that took its cuts against Mark Buehrle last Friday. The only different last Sunday against John Danks was Brandon Inge and Casper Wells being swapped in the batting order.
