The Tigers finished up their road trip today, winning five out of the ten games. As they get ready to host the Twins for a four-game series, there’s plenty of things they should be happy about.
Not only did the Tigers manage to win four out of seven games while playing at Texas and Tampa Bay, but they’ve now managed to bring their road record to 22-22. Good teams look to win half of their games on the road, and have a good record when playing at home.
That hasn’t been the case so far, as the Tigers are 17-18 while playing at Comerica Park. However, if they can manage to have a winning record in their final homestand before the All-Star Game, then they’ll find themselves in a very good position to make a run to win the division.
It’ll be interesting to see if the Tigers can keep their momentum going through the next few weeks, as it would greatly impact any potential moves they make at the trade deadline.
