Dontrelle Willis is back, but in the bullpen. I'm still not sure he can throw strikes.
The Tigers are 18-3 when scoring 5 or more runs; 1-24 when scoring 4 or less. That also means Detroit has given up at least 5 runs in more than half its games.
Detroit is 4-3 when Ryan Raburn starts, making Raburn the only position player with a winning record. The Tigers are 5-1 when Armando Galarraga starts and 5-5 when Kenny Rogers is on the hill.
Tigs only have 2 HR from the No. 3 spot in the batting order.
Playing up the positive: Detroit has won 3 of 4.
