Marlins Lineup

  1. LF Austin Dean
  2. RF Garrett Cooper
  3. 3B Brian Anderson
  4. 2B Starlin Castro
  5. CF Harold Ramírez
  6. 1B Martín Prado
  7. DH Neil Walker
  8. C Jorge Alfaro
  9. SS Miguel Rojas

P José Ureña (4.44 ERA, 4.55 FIP, 15.0 K%, 38.3 Hard Hit% in 52.2 IP)

Notes: It’s the fun fact of the day: the Marlins have the longest active winning streak in Major League Baseball. However, they continue to hit poorly during that stretch—.235/.283/.409, 5 HR in four games—and had to go through most of their bullpen to squeeze out Tuesday’s victory. In other words, don’t get too carried away with the recent success...First-ever start in the leadoff spot for Dean, who last appeared in the majors on April 17...Marlins Senior VP of marketing and community relations Elisa Padilla emphasizes trust, accountability and honesty in explaining to Front Office Sports how the franchise expects to build up its fanbase locally.

Tigers Lineup

  1. SS Gordon Beckham
  2. 1B Niko Goodrum
  3. RF Nicholas Castellanos
  4. DH Miguel Cabrera
  5. 3B Ronny Rodriguez
  6. LF Christin Stewart
  7. 2B Josh Harrison
  8. C John Hicks
  9. CF JaCoby Jones

P Daniel Norris (4.50 ERA, 4.79 FIP, 16.5 K%, 41.2 Hard Hit% in 40.0 IP)

Notes: The lefty Norris has slight reverse platoon splits for his career, retiring left-handed batters at a higher rate, but surrendering home runs to them far more frequently (17 HR in 337 PA vs. LHB compared to 30 HR in 1,076 PA vs. RHB)...In limited opportunities facing his former team, Miggy has raked (.464/.500/.679, 2 HR, 9 RBI in 7 G).
