NBA Finals, Michael Fulmer, Detroit Tigers Pitching, Cleveland Cavaliers, Golden State Warriors, Jesse Goldberg-Strassler, Lansing Lugnuts, and Throwback Thursday.

Have the Detroit Tigers found their savior? Rookie pitcher Michael Fulmer came on to throw 7.2 innings of no-hit baseball, his third consecutive impressive outing. Al gives his thoughts on the current standing of the team. Then, the NBA Finals start tonight. Al and engineer Isaac Constans predict the Golden State Warriors-Cleveland Cavaliers series, although callers stress the importance of another series in progress: the Stanley Cup Finals. And the featured guest for today is Jesse Goldberg-Strassler, play-by-play voice for the Lansing Lugnuts. He discusses the team's redoubtable pitching rotation and what to look forward to. Finally, "Throwback Thursday" ends the show with a taste of the past.
