Time to beat the Tribe
The Tigers begin an important three game series against the Indians tonight, as they look to make up some ground in the AL Central.
Entering play tonight, the Indians lead the AL Central, with the White Sox two and a half games back, and the Tigers three behind the pace. If the Tigers can sweep the Indians on the road, there’s a chance that they could find themselves tied for first place in the division.
The Tigers have played 18 games on the road this year and have gone 9-9 so far this year. The Tigers need to desperately get some momentum, as well as wins. It’s been over a month since they’ve won two games in a row, and there’s no better time to do it than now, when we’re playing against a team in our division.
If Rick Porcello can keep his sinker down in the zone and induce plenty of ground balls, the Tigers should have no problem getting a win tonight.
