The Texas Rangers are going for their sixth consecutive series victory tonight, as they take on the Detroit Tigers in a three-game series finale at Rangers Ballpark.
Roy Oswalt makes his second start for the Rangers, and his first against an American League team. Oswalt said he's familiar with some of the more notable Tigers batters. Miguel Cabrera used to play for the Florida Marlins, and Prince Fielder was with the Milwaukee Brewers back when Oswalt pitched for the Astros.
Cabrera has batted .200 (3 for 15) against Oswalt, while Fielder is 5 for 36 (.139) with one home run and nine strikeouts in his career against him.
