John Ely has not issued a walk in his last 84 batters faced. The Tigers get their first taste of ElyMania today, as do the markets receiving today's broadcast on Fox.

Fun fact of the day: Johnny Damon is hitless in eight at-bats in his career at Dodger Stadium, having played two games with the Red Sox here in 2002.

Here are the lineups:

Tigers Dodgers

RF Ordoñez
LF Manny
1B Cabrera CF Kemp
LF Boesch 1B Loney
3B Inge
