Alex Faedo had the best outing of his major league career last week. The right-hander will try to match that performance when he and the Detroit Tigers host the Texas Rangers on Tuesday.
Faedo (1-2, 4.15 ERA) struck out a career-high 10 while collecting his first win this season Thursday. He limited the Chicago White Sox to two runs and three hits and didn't issue a walk in six innings of a 7-2 victory.
Martin Perez (6-1, 3.83 ERA) is scheduled to start for Texas. The veteran lefty has won his last two starts while going seven innings each time.
He held Colorado to two runs and seven hits while striking out seven of a 7-2 win on May 19, then limited Pittsburgh to two runs and six hits Wednesday in a 3-2 victory. Perez was aided by two double plays against the Pirates.
