6/6 - L (home): 3.1 IP, 10 H, 9 ER, 4 HR, 3 SO, 1 BB
8/2 - ND (road): 4.0 IP, 10 H, 5 R, 4 ER, 1 HR, 3 SO, 3BB
Lewis is lucky because one of the players he had the most trouble with was Brennan Boesch (2 HR on 6/6), and he's on the disabled list. Lewis pitched better on the road this year (9-5, 3.43 ERA vs. 5-5, 5.54), and he was good in the ALDS against the Rays (6 IP, 1 H, 1 ER).
Doug Fister, who was great down the stretch (5-0, 0.53 ERA in September) was good against the Rangers this year (1-1, 3.68).
This could end up being another close game between these two teams, but those numbers (20 H in 7.1 IP) must be worrying the Rangers and give the Tigers their best shot to get back in the series.
