Not since Detroit’s 119-loss season of 2003 has a Tigers starter lost his first five starts to begin a season. Pelfrey could match that with a defeat Sunday, or he could earn his first win as a Tiger against his old team.

Verlander’s strikeout pitch has been working this season, but he’ll try to limit the runs when he opens Detroit’s series at Cleveland. Verlander (2-2) has 31 strikeouts in 29 2/3 innings, but he owns a 5.46 ERA.

Josh Tomlin has been remarkably consistent this season, as he's won each of the first three games that he has started this season. He'll test that unbeaten record against the Cardinals.

Sanchez (3-2) will try to build on his last start when he gave up two runs over 5 2/3 innings to beat the A's. Sanchez had allowed at least five runs in his previous two outings. He has a decision in every start this season.

Kluber's now gone 2 straight starts of 7+ innings and 2 or less earned runs. He said he didn't have his best stuff Friday but still shut down the Phillies besides one fifth inning blip.

Bauer made his first start of the season in a 4-3 loss to Philadelphia on Saturday, filling in for Carlos Carrasco, throwing 78 pitches in 4+ innings. Don't expect the pitch count to be an issue vs. Detroit, though.
