Andy Oliver put up a quality start in just his second MLB start and against the best lineup in baseball. Tigers were able to claw back from a 3-0 deficit to tie the first game up, which is where it's at after 7.5.
Also, it seems ESPN and/or MLB is lifting the exclusivity ban and will let FSD show the nightcap featuring Verlander v. Beckett. I guess some big wig finally decided the little bump in ratings the ESPN game would otherwise get is not worth having a premier pitching matchup go un-televised. Good for them, I can't wait to watch!
