Just a week ago these two teams were in different places.
The Indians had swept the Tigers, but now the script has been flipped as the Indians come into this one struggling while the Tigers have rattled off 5 straight wins.
The Tigers have rattled off 5 straight wins, which was capped off by a weekend sweep of the Minnesota Twins over the weekend.
Detroit has jumped to 4 games over the .500 mark and are now in 2nd place in the AL Central after being in 4th just a week ago after being swept by Cleveland. The Tigers have gotten their offense finally rolling, as they have scored 43 runs over a 7 game span where they have won 6 of those games.
The Tigers will send out RH Justin Verlander, who was the tough luck loser in the Friday game when these two teams met. Verlander allowed a pair of solo homeruns to Carlos Santana and Marlon Byrd as the offense supplied him with just 1 run in the loss.
The Indians have dropped 5 of their last 6, but it hasn’t been from playing all that bad.
Cleveland has seen every little mistake come back to haunt them, as all 6 games have been decided by 1 run. Sunday for example, saw them get swept away against the Phillies as Danny Salazar balked in a run after walking the pitcher in the same inning. It was all the runs he let up, but Cleveland fell 2-1.
Cleveland will send out RH Josh Tomlin here. Tomlin was the opposing pitcher to Verlander in that 2-1 win as he allowed just the 1 run over 6.2 innings of work. Tomlin has been the Indians stopped lately and received the their last win against the Twins, despite allowing 5 runs in the process.
