After losing 3-2 to the New York Mets on Saturday, the Detroit Tigers head on their first “road trip” of the season for two games at Roger Dean Stadium in Jupiter. Since its a 2 1/2 hour trip from Lakeland and both the Florida Marlins and St. Louis Cardinals make their winter home in the same stadium, the Tigers will stay overnight and face St. Louis Monday afternoon.

When We Last Met
Much was made about the Tigers’ interleague meeting in Miami to end the regular season and how it wasn’t fair that Detroit would be playing sans DH if the division or playoffs were on the line. As it happened, the Tigers clinched the division earlier in the week before facing the Marlins–and it was a good thing that they did. The Marlins young pitching staff kept the playoff-bound Tigers completely in check and Detroit managed only three runs over the three-game series, including being no-hit by Henderson Alvarez on the final day of the regular season.
