When We Last Met
Last Saturday, the Astros visited Lakeland and the Tigers came out victorious with the help of three strong innings from Kyle Lobstein, who was starting in place of Justin Verlander. Kyle’s turn in the rotation would have come tomorrow, but Verlander will be making his first start of the spring in Lakeland against the Philadelphia Phillies.
Max Scherzer gets the start.
