When We Last Met

The Detroit Tigers were able to take two out of three from the Seattle Mariners at Safeco Field in the week prior to the All-Star Break.

Despite Safeco being known as a hitter’s park and the Mariners strong pitching staff, the Tigers were able to average 7.67 runs per game. With Alfredo Simon and Shane Greene projected starters the next two nights, Detroit might need that kind of run production again in order to win.

Pitching Matchup

Simon will take the hill for the Tigers on Monday. After a strong start to the season, Simon has struggled mightily in his last five outings. He has allowed at least five runs in each of those appearances.

In his last start before the All-Star Break in Minnesota, Simon allowed seven runs, five earned, on 10 hits in just 2 1/3 frames. Overall, he is 8-6 with a 4.53 ERA, 1.46 WHIP and 75 strikeouts in 99 1/3 innings this season.

Left-hander J.A. Happ will start for the Mariners. He is 4-5 with a 4.14 ERA, 1.38 WHIP and 75 strikeouts in 95 2/3 innings this season.

Happ’s last start before the break actually came against the Tigers in Seattle, and he allowed four runs on seven hits in four innings. He also struck out three and walked three.
