The Los Angeles Angels have beaten the Detroit Tigers' top two pitchers in consecutive days -- Max Scherzer on Friday and Justin Verlander on Saturday. Anibal Sanchez (7-11, 4.08) will try to prevent the Tigers from getting swept at 3:35 p.m. ET Sunday.
Sanchez, who is just 2-4 with a 4.50 ERA in seven starts since the Tigers acquired him from the Miami Marlins, has pitched well lately. He's given up just two earned runs in his last three stars (19.2 innings), but has only one win to show for it.
He'll face Zack Greinke (13-5, 3.72 ERA), a pitcher, like Sanchez, who is still new to his team. He is 4-2 with a 4.36 ERA in eight starts since joining the Angels. One of those wins came against the Tigers on Aug. 24. Greinke gave up one run in 7.2 innings in a 2-1 Angels win.
The Tigers trail the Chicago White Sox by two games in the AL Central standings.
