This AL matchup includes two teams that are fighting to get over the hump and their division.
The Detroit Tigers are looking to gain up on the Indians in the AL Central.
The Blue Jays are in a similar situation, where they are currently standing behind the Baltimore Orioles.
The Detroit Tigers lineup has been rolling for most of this season at the plate. They are led in hitting by the DH Victor Martinez.
V-Mart is hitting .318 on the year with 30 extra base hits and 51 runs batted in. Nick Castellanos is off to a good start.
He is hitting .307 with 19 doubles and has knocked in 50 runs this season. Miguel Cabrera is leading the team in home runs (22) and RBIs (53) while hitting .298 on the year.
The Tigers have their hands full on the road against a red hot J.A. Happ.
The Tigers have Mike Pelfrey on the mound and he has been struggling. Pelfrey is currently 2-7 on the year with a 4.78 E.R.A. and 44 strikeouts.
Pelfrey was last in action in a good start in Tampa Bay where he received a no decision. He pitched in 6.1 innings where he only gave up 1 earned run on 6 hits.
Pelfrey walked 3 batters and also struck out 3 in the no decision. He will look to take down this big hitting lineup.
Toronto Blue Jays
The Toronto Blue Jays lineup is full of killers of the baseball. They are led by Josh Donaldson on the year.
Donaldson is hitting .301 on the year with 22 home runs and 60 runs batted in. Michael Saunders is hitting .296 on the year with 24 doubles and has knocked in 40 runs this season.
Edwin Encarncion is having a big season this year. He is leading baseball in RBIs with 77, and he has also hit 22 dingers and currently has a .270 batting average.
The Blue Jays look to stay hot against the AL Central.
The Jays have J.A. Happ on the mound Friday and he has looked very good. Happ is currently 11-3 on the year with a 3.54 E.R.A and 80 strikeouts.
Happ was last in action in a win against a very hot Cleveland team.
He threw in 7 innings where he gave up only 1 earned run on 5 hits. Happ walked 0 batters and struck out 11 Indians in the blowout win.
Happ looks to continue his success here before the break.

Free Cleveland Indians vs. Toronto Blue Jays MLB Prediction:
Both of these teams can hit the ball any day and score runs, but I’m going with the Blue Jays here because of the pitching matchup. Happ has been awesome this first half of the season; I look for him to stand solid.
Pelfrey on the other hand has not, look for him to struggle against this dangerous Blue Jays lineup.
