5/22 at Marlins, avoid the sweep!

By the end of this game Fossum will have had two starts and, barring injury or necessity from a double switch, will not have faced a left-handed batter as a starting pitcher. The Tigers stacked their lineup with righties and switch-hitters and the Marlins have done the same today, switching out Juan Pierre and Carlos Delgado for Chris Aguila and Jeff Conine. Good performances in starts like this mean even more for Fossum since he's doing it entirely against hitters from the side of the plate he's much less dominant against.

Crawford LF
Lugo SS
Huff RF
Lee 1B
Cantu 3B
Sanchez CF
Johnson C
Green 2B
Fossum P

That is a lineup, no question about it.
