The Detroit Tigers are looking to get back in the win column in game two of a three-game set against the Seattle Mariners on Wednesday. Detroit needs to shake off a poor game one that saw them surrender 15 hits altogether in an eventual 7-4 loss, and also the loss prior to that game as they're now on a two-game losing streak. It was a game in which the Mariners snapped a four-game losing skid of their own.
Detroit is going to have a tough time in game two, with Felix Hernandez set to take the mound for the Mariners. He's going for his ninth-straight win over the Tigers, and is coming off a game in which he had 12 strikeouts. He's 8-0 with a 3.05 earned-run average in his last nine starts against the Tigers, and hasn't allowed a homerun in just under 48 innings against them.
That being said, Miguel Cabrera has been hot lately and could break Hernandez's dominance over the Tigers. He's 9 for 18 with three walks against Hernandez. The Tigers are sitting at 10-7 overall, while the Mariners sit at 8-10, though the latter stands to get back to .500 if the Tigers can't put anything together this series.
The game is set for 7:05 p.m. eastern on Wednesday, while the series will wrap-up at 1:05 p.m. on Thursday before the Tigers hit the road to take on the New York Yankees.
