Game one of the Detroit Tigers four game set with the Oakland Athletics was certainly a step in the right direction. The Tigers had been struggling to score runs after only getting nine in three games against a weak Seattle Mariners team, and hadn't been hitting all that well
When they had been getting the hits, they were streaky. They'll want to carry on some momentum from Thursday's 17 hit, 10 run affair into game two against the A's. With Miguel Cabrera and Alex Avila both hot, A's starter Tommy Milone could have his hands full.
Against Milone, Detroit will trot out Rick Porcello. Porcello has had a quietly productive year so far with a 3-2 record and a 4.91 ERA. He'll have to watch out for Brandon Inge, who after a quiet game one will surely still be looking to punish the team that released him only weeks ago.
The game will be at O.co Coliseum at 10:05 p.m. ET.
