Porcello growing up fast

Rick Porcello starts tonight vs. Boston. The Tigers could really use a solid outing, considering Armando Galarraga and Dontrelle Willis are the next two in line. Porcello showed a little moxie last time to the hill, winning at KC to give Detroit the series. This might be his first really big start at Comerica.

Detroit's schedule is fairly tough this month, mainly because the NL Central seems so competitive and that's who the Tigers will see in Interleague play. Of course the NL Central might only seem competitive when compared to NL clubs. But the NL did better the first time round in Interleague this season.

Just a side note from the Tigers press jottings: Curtis Granderson homered from the cleanup spot on Sunday, making him the first player this year to homer from starts in the leadoff spot and cleanup. He is the first Detroit player since Bobby Higginson in 1996 to accomplish the feat.
