Tigers lineup: TBA.

Game notes: The Tigers will play a second game with temperatures bordering 100 degrees outside the park, following their 5-1 victory in the series opener Friday. Faedo, a rookie with a mere 44⅓ major-league innings, is from Florida so he’s no stranger to high temps. He has been knocked around for 12 runs (11 earned) in his last two starts while recording just 22 outs.

FRIDAY’S VICTORY: Grand slam from Báez drives Tigers to 5-1 win over Diamondbacks

Javier Báez has been hot for the Tigers since sitting out the series finale against the Chicago White Sox last week. Since then, he’s 12-for-31 (.387) with four home runs, three doubles and a triple. The highlight? A grand slam on Friday night, making him the third Tigers shortstop to homer in at least three straight games. (The others? Carlos Guillen in 2007 and Dick McAuliffe in 1966.) And the usually walk-averse Báez has drawn two free passes in that span while striking out just twice. Overall in June, he’s 17-for-65 (.262) with nine runs and 10 extra-base hits over 18 games. He also has a home run and a .303 batting average over 33 career at-bats vs. the soft-tossing Davies. Tucker Barnhart, who also saw a lot of Davies during his days in the National League Central, hasn’t fared quite as well, with one home run and a .190 average in 21 at-bats. No other Tiger has faced Davies more than three times.
