Result: Loss

*3 Star MLB Ace Showdown* It would be tough to find a better pitching matchup than Verlander vs. Price. Verlander is the best pitcher in baseball right now. His win/loss record isn't as impressive as last year, but his ERA is almost exactly the same. Price has been pretty good this year, but he has benefited from strong offensive support from the Rays. Without Matt Joyce and Evan Longoria in the lineup, the Rays simply don't have much pop in the middle of the order. Austin Jackson, Miguel Cabrera, and Prince Fielder are all hitting the ball extremely well right now. The Tigers have the much better lineup. Take Detroit.
