Why are the Detroit Tigers suddenly losing? Two reasons
|Verlander: Figuring it out|
- The Tigers' starting pitching, their great strength, was awful over the weekend. Facing a strong lineup in a hitter-friendly ball park, Justin Verlander, Anibal Sanchez and Doug Fister didn't pitch well at all. We'll see how Max Scherzer, who is 5-0, but with an ERA pushing four, does in a pressure start against a streaking team, the Indians, on the road Tuesday. Verlander gets his shot at turning it around in a pressure start Wednesday vs. AL Central leading Tribe. Verlander has not pitched well at Progressive Field in Cleveland. His career numbers there: 7-10, 5.38 ERA, 1.339 WHIP. Should be interesting.
