Jeff Weaver vs. Kenny Rogers
The last time the Tigers lost a playoff game this year, they went on to win seven games in a row. Verlander became aquainted with the biggest stage in baseball and had mixed results. He struck out quite a few, but gave up homers to Scott Rolen and Albert Pujols (Leyland took the blame for the latter). Reyes was the biggest story of the game with his 8+ innings of work and the Cards must be hoping they can have something similar out of Weaver.
But wouldn't it be funny if Kenny Rogers walked in the run that lost the Tigers this game?
