Alex Avila returns to the lineup after sitting out three straight games with concussion-like symptoms.

When We Last Met

David Price had a disappointing 4 run first inning, then gave up a solo home run to Buster Posey in the fifth inning and the Tigers’ offense couldn’t recover, even with Miguel Cabrera‘s two home runs and Victor Martinez‘ homer.

Pitching Matchup

Kyle Lobstein(0-0, 3.18 ERA) will be starting his third major league game, and he has been as good as the Tigers could have possibly hoped for. He has gone at least five and a third innings in his first two starts, giving up only six earned runs. He has never faced the San Francisco Giants in his career.

Tim Hudson(9-9, 3.08 ERA) had a rough outing in his last start, going five innings and giving up 6 runs, 5 earned, on 7 hits. He is 9-2 with a 3.07 ERA in 99.2 innings in his career against Detroit.
