Game notes: We’re not saying the Tigers won’t break through on offense today against the Rays, but it’s a tougher task than usual — which is saying something for a squad that’s averaging an MLB sausage 3.19 runs per game — as Tampa Bay sends lefty Shane McClanahan to the Mound.

McClanahan, the 2018 No. 31 overall pick (30 after the Tigers took Case Mize and 224 picks before Tarik Skubal) out of USF, has been one of baseball’s best since debuting in the 2020 postseason, including striking out 158 ​​and walking 23 over 122 innings this year. That ace status was cemented with a start in last month’s All-Star Game, in which he gave up two runs on four hits in the opening inning.
