No matter how well Doug Fister pitches on Wednesday evening, he'll likely do better than Jacob Turner did on Tuesday for the Detroit Tigers. Turner was absolutely shellacked by the LA Angels and couldn't make it out of the second inning before he was replaced.
The Tigers ended up losing 13-0, the best road win by the Angels in almost a decade.
Fister (3-6, 4.39 ERA) will just need to stop the bleeding and hope that the Tigers can reproduce at least the offense that they saw in game one of the series, an 8-6 victory. Detroit will need to be at the top of it's offensive game with star C.J. Wilson (9-5, 2.43 ERA) on the mound for the Angels.
If the Tigers want success, they'll at least need to slow down the big names like Mike Trout and Albert Pujols, both of whom went deep -- alongside three other Angels hitters -- during the 13-0 rout. Scoring at least a single run wouldn't hurt their chances either. That's up to their own big names, including Melky Cabrera (1-3 in game two) and Prince Fielder, who went 0-1 and got hit by a pitch to add insult to injury.
The game will be at Comerica Park at 7:05 p.m. ET.
