Tigers and Twins Will Play Two Tomorrow

Ernie Banks wouldn’t have it any other way, would he? A four-game series that was slated to decide the AL Central winner will now feature a day-night doubleheader tomorrow. Nick Blackburn (11-11, 4.18 ERA) will duel against Tigers’ rookie Rick Porcello (14-9, 4.14 ERA) to kick off the week in Detroit.

Detroit nurses a two game lead over the Twins, despite a tumultuous September that saw the Tigers lose nine of twelve from September 8th to the 19th. The Tigers have since won five of seven including a sweep over the Indians. Minnesota is on an 11-2 tear as of late, keeping them in the hunt for the AL Central Title.
