Composition of the Tigers: To confirm.
Game Notes: The Tigers fell in the third of this four-game series, thanks in large part to a listless offense. The bullpen was asked to pitch more than six innings after Matt Manning left with an injury and allowed just two runs in that span. But the Tigers couldn’t score in the final innings of the game and will look to win the series on Sunday.
It was a low-scoring affair – neither team managed more than four points in a single game. Alexander will try to do his part to keep this trend alive. He struck out four and allowed five hits and three runs Tuesday in 5⅓ innings against the Boston Red Sox.
Hernandez is making his 16th MLB career start and fourth against the Tigers. he has a 5.84 era in 12⅓ innings, which includes a relief appearance. Hernandez got a no-decision last time out, giving up four runs on six hits over 4⅓ innings against the Cleveland Guardians.
Both teams are out on Monday, with the Royals starting a series against the Minnesota Twins on Tuesday and the Tigers starting a series with the New York Yankees.
