Tigers lineup vs. Indians, Game 44: Verlander vs. Masterson

The Tigers send their stopper — Justin Verlander (5-1, 2.14 ERA) — to the mound for the getaway game in the three-game set against the Indians on Thursday (12:05 p.m./FSD/WXYT-FM 97.1).
The Indians took the first two, but Verlander has gone 20-3 after a Tigers loss the past two seasons, and they're hoping Thursday's start will be no different.
