The Detroit Tigers' game against the Minnesota Twins on Saturday, Sept. 29 has been moved to FOX, and will now start at 4:05 p.m. ET, according to Tigers Director of Media Relations Brian Britten.
The game was originally scheduled for 7:05 p.m. ET on Fox Sports Detroit, but the Tigers' ongoing pennant chase has pushed them into the national spotlight. On one hand, that's a good thing, as the game will get network television exposure. However, it can also be construed as a negative move, as fans outside of the region associated with Detroit will be unable to view the game on MLB.tv and MLB Extra Innings.
Assuming the Tigers' rotation remains as currently constructed throughout the week, AL Cy Young candidate Justin Verlander will take the ball on Saturday. He will also be on the mound for Monday night's contest against the Kansas City Royals. Every game is of utmost importance from here on out for the Tigers, who are one game behind the Chicago White Sox in the AL Central.
