Detroit Tigers, 76-67, 2nd place, 1 back.

Last night again went according to plan, as Justin Verlander shook off his last start and shut out the Indians, with the help of some diving stops by the big guys on the corners.

Today Anibal Sanchez will try to do his part as the Tigers look to even up the 2012 tally with Cleveland (9-7 vs Detroit) over these last two games.

And the Tigers will be peeking at the Chicago-Minnesota game in the clubhouse, which should be ending just as their game begins.

Be aware that tomorrow’s Cleveland finale has the odd 3:05 start time.

Speaking of scheduling, the Detroit’s 2013 schedule has been released, and the Tigers have drawn the short end of the stick with the inter league scheduling, getting the only inter league season ending series, in Miami–which means they will be closing out 2013 with a possible pennant race decided by games in which their pitchers are batting.

Stat of the Day: Quintin Berry is 3-5 (.600) with 2 doubles against Justin Masterson.

Today’s Player of the Pre-game: Quintin Berry.  Berry takes advantage of the Masterson sinker to rack up multiple infield hits.
