Pitching: RHP Max Scherzer (6-1, 2.98)
Game time: 1:05 p.m.

Notes: The Sox are 2-1 on their road trip and have four game against the Tigers to play. … The Sox beat the Tigers in two games at Fenway earlier this month. … The Sox have won 10 of 12 and 13 of 17. … Gonzalez has hit safely in six straight at 14 of 29 with six RBIs. … Crawford is 6 of his last 11 with four extra-base hits. … Scherzer is 0-1 with a 5.56 ERA in two starts against the Sox, both coming last season. … Ortiz is for 3 for 5 against Scherzer with two home runs.
Stat of the Day: Aceves has thrown only one inning against the Tigers in his career, that coming on July 18, 2009. Only Victor Martinez (1 for 5), Miguel Cabrera (0 for 1) and Jhonny Peralta (0 for 1) have faced him.
