Toronto Blue Jays vs Detroit Tigers MLB Game InformationDate/Time: August 28, 7:07 PM ET Venue: Rogers Centre, Toronto TV: SNET, TVA Sports Radio: SN590 Opening Lines: Toronto -220, Detroit +204 R.A. Dickey (8-10, 4.26 ERA) will start on Friday, and has gone unbeaten in his last 7 starts. The Detroit Tigers (60-66) have a problem right now, and it’s one that the Jays must be delighted about. The Tigers seem unable to keep their opponents off the board, unless of course Justin Verlander is on the mound for them. Verlander has given up just 1 earned run in his last 4 starts, and came ridiculously close to throwing his third career no-hitter on Wednesday night. The rest of the Detroit pitching staff don’t even come close to what he is doing right now, and their opponents are taking advantage of the poor efforts of that staff. Verlander won’t get a start in this series, so there is the distinct possibility that things could once again get very ugly for the Tigers pitchers. It will be Matt Boyd 91-4, 7.04 ERA) who will get the start against his former club.
