Things to know about this game:
Friday marks the start of the Tigers' annual Fiesta Tigres weekend, recognizing and honoring the contributions of Latino players and coaches to the game of baseball. Former Tigers great Placido Polanco will take part in a question-and-answer session at Comerica Park's Big Cat Court at 5:45 p.m. ET.

Minnesota outfielder Eddie Rosario is 9-for-32 (.281) with two doubles, two home runs and six RBIs against the Tigers so far this season.

Tigers left-hander Daniel Norris is on track to throw a simulated game Friday, possibly at Triple-A Toledo. He's working his way back from a groin strain that landed him on the 10-day disabled list last month.

Polanco, what a talent. He had so many epic at bats due to the fact he struck out very little.

Story Time

October 4, 2009

I take my girlfriend to her first tigers game in detroit vs White Sox, game 162, they played 163 that year

Polanco hits foul ball down right field line, Jermaine Dye tosses it into the crowd, and that is the day I got my only foul ball, been to probably 30 MLB games

Fast forward 4 years, I marry said girlfriend on October 5th, 2013, 4 years and 1 day later. How do I remember my anniversary? 1 day after I got my only foul ball, dead serious. LOL

Kinsler and Mahtook with 16 pitches between them and Mahtook hits a homerun.
LF rosario stands right up to the wall otherwise might have caught it,

Upton chases shit in the left handed batters box,

Miggy grounds out to short,
