Rain Rain Go Away - May 16th 2011 - Jays @ Tigers - Gamethread

New, 544 comments

The Jays are looking to continue their winning ways with a quick two game set in Detroit that will close out the season series against the old time rivals. The only problem is that it seems like Mother Nature may have something else on her mind instead of Baseball. The skies are looking gloomy but they are hoping to get the game in.

If the game does get off the ground it looks like we have a good chance of seeing two young exciting pitchers with Kyle Drabek taking the mound for the Jays and opposing him will be undefeated Max Scherzer. The Jays were supposed to miss Scherzer in this series but the Tigers were rained out yesterday and pushed his start back a day.

Lineups!

Escobar SS Patterson LF Bautista RF Encarnacion 1B Hill 2B Rivera DH Arencibia C Davis CF Mcdonald 3B

Today's #Tigers lineup: Jackson CF, Dirks LF, Boesch RF, Cabrera 1B, Martinez DH, Peralta SS, Avila C, Inge 3B, Santiago 2B

Still no Adam Lind, although apparently he is very close. And although Nix was recently activated still no start for him as McDonald gets the nod at 3B over Nix.
