Mike Minor has been great this year for the Braves (3-1, 1.80 ERA), but his record against American League opponents with a 4.96 ERA. He'll have to face the best slugger in the game in Miguel Cabrera, who is hitting .413 with a home and 12 RBIs during an 11-game hitting streak. Detroit has 17 runs in the first two games against the Braves. They won't need more than five with Fister on the mound. Detroit hosts Atlanta at Comerica Park at 8pmET on Sunday night.
