On the road again

Detroit plays in Seattle tonight. Here are some notes from the Tigers' Web site:

Miguel Cabrera is the third Tiger since 1955 to collect at least 17 hits and 12 RBI in the team's first nine games. The others were Chris Shelton in 2006 and Al Kaline in 1955.

Justin Verlander will start tonight against Seattle (Felix Hernandez). Verlander is 6-1 with a 2.91 ERA in seven career starts against the Mariners. This will be Verlander's 100th career start for Detroit.

Curtis Granderson is 8-for-15 in his career vs. Felix Hernandez with a double and a homer. He's also struck out 6 times.

Dontrelle Willis is scheduled to pitch a rehab game for Single-A Lakeland on Tuesday. Joel Zumaya is slated to pitch for Triple-A Toledo on Saturday.
