Derek Lowe (4-5, 4.15) vs. Armando Galarraga (5-2, 3.70).
COMMENTS: Happy Friday the 13th! The luck o' the Dodgers could hardly be worse; in addition to being sans Furcal, they've been hapless and luckless. But it gets worse. Now the Dodgers are...gnomeless.
An effective Lowe (7-1 with a 1.82 ERA lifetime against the Tigers) will induce lots of grounders, so let's hope the defense doesn't muffuletta plays. What, you thought we were done with the sandwich puns? Ha ha, focaccia!
