Game notes: A couple of young lefties do battle in game four of this extended series. Wentz is making his first major-league start after becoming an Atlanta Braves 2016 draft pick then being traded to the Tigers in 2019. He has a 3.46 ERA and 1.21 WHIP in 463 innings pitched in the minors. This year, he pitched to a 4.12 ERA and 1.07 WHIP in five starts for Triple-A Toledo.
Logue threw his first MLB pitches last month after being a ninth-round pick in 2017. The Cincinnati native has a 3.51 ERA, 1.20 WHIP and 8.4 K/9 over 430⅓ innings in five minor-league seasons, with most of that work coming below the Triple-A level. He allowed two runs on five hits and two walks in his five innings Friday vs. the Minnesota Twins and struck out five.
The teams finish the series with a 1:10 p.m. start before Detroit stays put for a series with the Baltimore Orioles and Oakland hosts the Los Angeles Angels.
