On Deck: Detroit Tigers at Pittsburgh Pirates

Series Preview

The Detroit Tigers open up  a 3 game interleague series today against the Pittsburgh Pirates.  For the second straight series the Tigers are guest to another team’s home opener.  This Wednesday is also the celebration of Jackie Robinson Day where all the players from every team in baseball honor Mr. Robinson by wearing the number 42 jersey.  The Tigers come into the Pirates series firing on all cylinders, riding a season opening 6 game win steak.  The Tigers starting pitching and bullpen has had a great start to this young season, giving the Tigers hitters the opportunities to be patient at the plate.  A major downside to the Tigers playing in Pittsburgh, is the loss of the designated hitter, Victor Martinez.  Usually if V-Mart and Miguel Cabrera were 100% healthy coming into the season, the Tigers would have been able to keep V-Mart in the line up by having him play first and shifting Cabrera to third.  V-Mart will still be available for the pinch hit cameo during the series.
