The Tigers had a lead in the rubber match with the Angels on Thursday afternoon but the wheels came off Michael Fulmer and when you’ve got a notoriously terrible bullpen damage control isn’t part of the game plan.
I think Joaquin Benoit might be the only relief pitcher the Tigers have had in his prime in my lifetime. I’m not old enough to remember 1984, either.
Speaking of damage control, though, Jordan Zimmermann has had to get pretty good at it this year. Opponents are hitting .308 against him and he’s given up 16 homers in 11 starts.
But he’s managed to keep runs to a minimum in six of his last seven starts. Zim has given up a four-spot three times, a threee, a two and a one in those six starts. There was a seven mixed in there, too.
Still, for someone who is serving it up like he is this year, that isn’t bad.
Boston Red Sox
Boston gets Dustin Pedroia back after dropping the last two out of its three in New York this week. Pedroia won’t fill the lineup like a big power bat in the middle might but the card has been looking a little thin for John Farrell in the last week or two.
Brian Johnson comes back up to join the big club, now recovered from a tweaked hamstring.
He threw his first complete game shutout in his last start against the Mariners in a fill-in spot for the injured Eduardo Rodriguez. E-Rod could be out a while so Johnson should get comfortable.
The Sox could use a lift from someone unexpected.

Free Detroit Tigers vs. Boston Red Sox MLB Prediction: Pedroia’s presence is felt.
I just think his presence on the field, back at home will go a long way tonight. Everyone will be a little more energized and that makes the difference.
