57-50, 2nd place, 1.5 games back.

The Tigers rode Doug Fister’s tremendous  fantastic complete game performance to another easy win. For the first time in a while, they beat up on Ubaldo Jimenez en route to the 6-1 victor. None of the Tigers’ RBIs came from Cabrera or Fielder, as the BooBs went 6-16 with 4 XBHs and all 6 RBIs. Jud slept well for sure.

Too Many Strikeouts Max takes the ball this afternoon looking for the sweep. His 11.08 Ks/9 leads the AL, and he’s 5-3 with a 3.73 ERA and 1.23 WHIP over his last 10. I’m going to predict that Max gets his first career CG Shutout (even a shutout would be a first) today.

The Tigers go against little used call-up spot start guy Chris Seddon, who is making his first Major League appearance since 2010. The lefty has a career 7.03 ERA, .299 BA and 1.64 WHIP. The Tigers really should put up some runs against this guy.

A few notes:

- Raburn to the DL retroactive to 8/1 with a thumb sprain. Worth up (and starting…).

- Al Al moved up to Toledo yesterday, and retired the only batter he faced.

- Schlereth began his rehab with Lakeland on Friday.
