Coming off a defensive debacle in which each infielder made a key error while the pitchers served up a pair of grand slams, the A's try to rebound behind left-hander Dallas Braden. Rookie right-hander Rick Porcello starts for Detroit, facing the A's for the first time. Porcello is just 20 years old and like the A's Trevor Cahill and Brett Anderson, his starts have been a mixed bag.
