Detroit wraps up its series with Texas on Sunday with the opportunity to win its third in a row after beating up on Cole Hamels on Saturday.
The Tigers’ centerfielder Jacoby Jones made one of the best catches of the season in the win, ranging back to the fence in left-centerfield and leaping in stride to rob Adrian Beltre of a home run.
Francisco Liriano is having his best season since 2015 pitching with the sixth different team of his career. His ERA+ is approaching 110 with a WHIP of 1.33. His 7.0 hits allowed per nine innings is the lowest such mark of his career, going all the way back to 2006 when he broke onto the scene and made his only all-star game.
Tampa Bay Rays
The Rays pitched their fourth shutout in the last two weeks in Saturday’s 3–0 win over the Mets. Blake Snell got an out in the eighth inning before turning it over to the ‘pen, which escaped a minor jam and had smooth sailing from there.
With Wilmer Font, Vidal Nuno and Johnny Venters all having gone out recently, the Rays will welcome back a third starting pitcher to to mix when Chris Archer makes his first appearance in over a month on Monday.
Thing is, Archer isn’t one of Tampa Bay’s better pitchers anymore, at least not since Kevin Cash has torn up the rulebook and given all his pitchers an equal opportunity to get outs.
Archer went down with an ERA over 4.00; though it was much higher than just a few weeks prior to then. He had put together four good starts in a row at the time of his injury. We’ll soon find out where he picks it up from.
