The Tigers have always had the Indians number. However, this year that hasn’t been the case.
The Indians will go for back to back sweeps over the Tigers when the two teams meet on Thursday night in the series finale.
The Tigers came into this series winners of 5 straight games. However, they haven’t looked like that team over the first two games with Cleveland.
Detroit has dropped both games, only finding 3 runs in the process. The lone Tiger to get to Cleveland has been Nick Castellanos. The Tigers 3B has gone 4 for 7 and continues to tear apart the opposition as he’s hitting .378 on the year.
Trying to avoid the sweep, the Tigers will send out Michael Fulmer. The RH is 1-0 on the year and made his major league debut against Minnesota last time out as he allowed 2 runs on 7 hits in 5.0 innings of work.
Fulmer is expected to do big things for the Tigers, as he was a main part of the Yoenis Cespedes trade last year.
The Indians can’t beat the Phillies, but they can beat the Tigers. Cleveland improved to 5-0 this season against Detroit as their starting pitching has turned in back to back solid starts.
This time around it was Corey Kluber, who through a complete game shutout, allowing just 5 hits in the process. Kluber had the Detroit offense off balanced all night
Trying to follow up in the starting pitching performances, Trevor Bauer takes the hill. Bauer is so crucial to this Cleveland Indians rotation as Carlos Carrasco remains out with a hamstring injury. Bauer struggled early in Philadelphia on Saturday, but managed to maintain his composure and keep Cleveland in the game. With Bauer, it’s about control. He leaves pitches up in the zone consistently and needs to figure out a way to keep the ball down in the zone to hitters.
