_______________________________________ _________

After nearly blowing their last game, the Detroit Tigers  look for a more dominating effort as they continue their three-game series with the lowly Washington Nationals  on Tuesday.

Detroit's Chad Durbin (5-3, 4.60 ERA) may be making one of his final starts for the immediate future. Durbin has been adequate as the No. 5 starter, but with Kenny Rogers  and Nate Robertson  expected to return from the disabled list, the right-hander's time may be up.

Rogers has been on the DL all season after having surgery on his left shoulder in March, and is scheduled to make his first start on Friday against Atlanta.

Jason Simontacchi  (4-4, 4.84) tries to win his third straight start for the first time in more than five years for Washington.

Simontacchi gave up one run and nine hits in seven innings of a 3-1 win over Baltimore on Thursday.
