Game notes: The Tigers go for the series win behind Manning, the team's 2016 first-round pick. He didn't pitch for two-plus months after hitting the injured list in late April with shoulder inflammation. In his first start back, Tuesday vs. the first-place Minnesota Twins, Manning struck out one and allowed three runs over five innings. This will be his first start vs. Tampa Bay.
SATURDAY'S VICTORY: Tigers spend lots of time on 2nd base in 9-1 rout of Rays
Rasmussen beat the Tigers on May 18, striking out seven and allowing four hits in five scoreless innings. None of the Tigers have seen Rasmussen more than five times and no one has more than one hit vs. the right-hander. He usually works between four and five innings and hasn't allowed more than three runs since June 10 vs. the Minnesota Twins.
Next up for the Tigers are three games vs. the Cleveland Guardians beginning Tuesday to open a stretch of 10 straight vs. American League Central rivals. The Rays head to Milwaukee for two games vs. the National League Central-leading Brewers beginning Tuesday.
