Philadelphia Phillies (49-54) at Detroit Tigers (57-45)  Raul Valdes (1-0, 7.59) vs. Max Scherzer (14-1, 3.14) Time: 7:08 PM EST, Comerica Park Weather:  Rain, 68 TV: CSN Media: Twitter and Facebook Today’s game was all set up to be a real pitcher’s duel.  Cliff Lee was expected to start alongside fellow All-Star Max Scherzer, however Lee was scratched due to neck soreness. As rumors circulate about his impending departure, he is listed as day-to-day. In his place today, Raul Valdes will get the start. The lefty was 3-4 with a 3.10 ERA over 12 starts for the IronPigs before being recalled Tuesday. That day, he allowed one run and two hits in 1 1/3 innings in relief against St. Louis. This will be his third career start. Scherzer, meanwhile, was the AL started for the All-Star game and was tied for the Major League lead in wins as of Friday. This will be his first start against the Phillies. Your Gameday Beer- Bud Light Sometimes you just have to go with a normal beer. Feels like the right kind of Saturday night for that.
