The Halos enter this series with a 33-35 overall record, putting them 9 games back of the A’s in the division race.
Los Angeles will hand the ball to veteran right-hander Alex Cobb, who will be looking to rebound following his worst outing of the season. The 33-year-old was bounced from his start after giving up 5 earned runs in just 3 innings against the Arizona Diamondbacks.
He is 4-2 with a 4.98 ERA in 9 starts and has posted strong performances.
After being swept by the White Sox at home, the Tigers bounced back with a sweep of their own on the road against Kansas City.
Detroit now enters this series at 29-39, good for 4th place in the AL Central and 14 games back from the White Sox.
Right-hander Jose Urena is expected to get the call for the Tigers in the 2nd game of their series in Los Angeles on Friday. The 29-year-old is 2-6 with a 5.16 ERA in 12 starts overall and is coming off of his worst start of the season. Last time out, Urena was shelled for 8 runs (7 earned) in just 1.2 innings of work against the Chicago White Sox.
