The Tigers will look to complete a three-game sweep of the Red Sox at Fenway Park on Wednesday afternoon, with two young, talented starters set to square off. Rookie Michael Fulmer gets the nod for Detroit, while fellow 23-year-old Eduardo Rodriguez takes the hill for Boston.
Fulmer has been a steady presence in the Tigers' rotation this season. He posted an impressive 10-start stretch from May 21-July 21, going 7-1 with a 0.83 ERA. Since the Majors began tracking earned runs more than 100 years ago, no other pitcher has compiled an ERA that low over a span of 10 starts in his rookie season, according to Elias Sports Bureau.
