Pitchers: Gerrit Cole, Tyler Glasnow, Drew Hutchison and Jared Lakind. This is Cole's first turn on the hill. Today features the unusual combo of the club ace teamed up with a pair of guys gunning for the fifth spot in the rotation, although Tyler may one day fill Gerrit's shoes.
Yesterday's Game: Good start as Fran and Jose Osuna cranked longballs off Justin Verlander. It got better later when Adam Frazier homered and Jordy drilled a grand salami. The smoke cleared after OF'er Jerrick Suiter's two run single with the Buccos rolling to an 11-1 victory over the Tigers. Steven Brault, Trevor Williams, Tyler Webb, Tyler Eppler and minor-league camper Jason Creasy combined to toss six-hit ball.
