Tigers Open ALDS In Baltimore

The Tigers open the American League Divisional Series on the road today against the Orioles in Baltimore.

Detroit sends right-hander Max Scherzer (18-5, 3.15) to the mound while Baltimore counters with fellow right-hander Chris Tillman (13-6, 3.34).

Scherzer says he’s got to stay ahead in the count against the dangerous Oriole line-up. “They have the power to be able to beat you, so you can’t just be laying cookies in there in 2-0 situations,” says Scherzer. “But from the other side, I just can’t be in those situations, I can’t be in 2-0 counts, I can’t be in 2-1 counts, because if I do I’m going to get beat.”

First pitch is set for 5:30pm.
