I almost forgot about this game. Almost.
The Sox go for the sweep in D'Town. Freddy Garcia, who was brilliant last time out, looks to add his name to all of the All-Star talk. -- Why doesn't his name get brought up, anyway? -- Mike Maroth pitches for the Tigers.
From the I told you so a long time ago files: Damaso Marte to the DL.
Marte has an inflamed left trapezius; he was placed on the DL retroactive to June 27. He is 3-3 this season with a 2.81 ERA and 29 strikeouts. He leads the Sox with 34 appearances this season.
