Cole will look to rebound from allowing five runs in 4 2/3 innings to the Reds on June 24. He needs to correct mechanical issues that had him throwing across his body, flattening his pitches. He has a career 6-1 record in Interleague Play.

Dealing with a losing record despite his 1.01 WHIP and .189 opponents' average, Liriano could find some reward under ideal conditions: ERAs of 2.30 ERA on the road and 2.25 in daylight, balanced by the 5-10 record vs. Tigers.

Ryan was supposed to pitch Saturday until a rainout and Justin Verlander's return forced the Tigers to push back his start. The lefty has started three games this year, but his last outing was 12 pitches in relief on June 24.

Homers continue to plague Sanchez, who's allowed 18 this year, including five in his last two starts. Manager Brad Ausmus believes opponents have generally been lucky to capitalize on a handful of poorly-located pitches.
