The AL Central is on the line as the Detroit Tigers and Cleveland Indians play in game 2 of their 3 game set on Fox Sports 1 at 4:10 Saturday afternoon.
The Detroit Tigers know everything is on the line this weekend.
Not only are they fighting for a chance at the division title, but they’re also fighting to grab a Wild Card spot. Here in game 2, they’ll try to get to Carlos Carrasco and it will start with the table setters at the bottom of the lineup.
Detroit will look to get runners on and set it up for Miguel Cabrera, Victor Martinez, and JD Martinez, a recipe that has led to success.
The Tigers will send out Justin Verlander here, who has gone 5-2 over his last 10 starts.
He did lose his previous start as Baltimore got to him for 3 runs on 7 hits in a 3-1 loss.
The Indians too, know they can put the division race to rest with a big weekend. On the other side of things, they can also allow the Tigers to get right back into it.
Cleveland sits 6.0 games up in the race entering the weekend, but limp into this weekend after losing 3 of 4 in Chicago.
The Indians offense will be a giant key all series long as they will face the Tigers best 3. As the old saying goes, to be the best, you have to beat the best. That is what the Indians will get this weekend.
Carlos Carrasco will get the ball here, looking to bounce back from a bad start in Chicago.
Carrasco was not helped out by his defense by any means, but allowed 4 ER in just 3.2 innings of work. He just didn’t seem to have a put away pitch as the White Sox hitters continued to string together long at bats.
