Game time is 7:05 on WNUV and FSN Detroit.
Here we have a chance to play spoiler. Detroit is just one game up on Minnesota now, and only three on Chicago. They're kind of falling apart. As much as I think the Tigers are a neat little story, I sort of want to be a jerk and knock them out, you know? It will be something accomplished at least.
It'll be Hayden Penn (0-2, 36.82) against struggling Jeremy Bonderman (11-8, 4.18). Bonderman has been lit up since the All-Star break, with a 5.38 ERA and 1.56 WHIP, as compared to his 3.46/1.14 marks in the first half. Batters are hitting 54 points higher off of Bonderman in the second half (.237/.291).
Let's go, O's!
