Tigers-Rays preview

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- The Detroit Tigers have scored 10 runs in three straight games, and the task of stopping those scorching bats Saturday falls on rookie Blake Snell, who makes just his fifth career start.

Snell has one of the Rays' two wins in the last 16 games, but if he's going to win, he'll have to beat one of the American League's best in Justin Verlander, who takes the mound as Detroit seeks its fifth win in a row.

"I think every single one of us knows what we're capable of," said Friday's Rays starter Drew Smyly, who gave up six runs in dropping to 2-9 on the season. "We just have to go out and do it. No team's going to let us just take one. We have to go out and take it ourselves."
