The long flight from San Francisco to Detroit will seem even longer for a Tigers team that returns to the Motor City with their tails between their legs. Game 3 on Saturday night will begin at 8:05 PM ET in Comerica Park with temperatures expected in the mid 40’s and a 40% chance of rain. FOX will cover the game on TV.
The forecasted weather may be appropriate amid the doom and gloom of the Tigers dropping the first two games to the Giants by the bay. Do you want the rest of the bad news? They haven’t faced Matt Cain or Ryan Vogelsong yet. That will change when Vogelsong takes the hill in this one.
Detroit was favored in the series opener on Wednesday, as was expected with Justin Verlander on the mound for them.
