The Tigers (28-22) try to snap a two-game skid as they face the Angels (25-24) on Saturday at Angel Stadium of Anaheim (FSD/1270 AM/97.1 FM). First pitch is 10:05.

The team's struggles continued at the plate in Friday's 2-0 loss as the Tigers were held to four hits. It marked the second time the team has been shut out on the current road trip as the A's blanked the Tigers 4-0 last Monday.
