IN sports…the Tigers send Doug Fister to the mound tonight as they take on the Twins at Target Field. Last night, Detroit wasted a 12-strikeout effort by Justin Verlander, blowing a 3-0 eighth-inning lead in a 4-3 loss to Minnesota. You can hear Tiger baseball beginning at 7:45 tonight with Dan Dickerson and Jim Price on 1450 WHTC.
In other baseball action, the White Sox could help the Tigers clinch the A-L Central if they beat the Indians in Cleveland and the Tigers beat the Twins. Meanwhile, the Cubs host Pittsburgh at Wrigley Field, one night after the Pirates clinched their first playoff berth in two decades with a 2-1 win over Chicago. Also last night, the White Sox edged Toronto 3-2.
