The Detroit Tigers have proved to be a lot better then most people would have thought and they will look to give the Cleveland Indians everything they can handle this Friday, as the two teams meet up at Progressive Field in Cleveland Ohio.
The Detroit Tigers should feel awfully good about themselves coming into this series with the Indians, as they just won a series with the Boston Red Sox and are coming into this one off the back of an impressive 8-1 win.
The Tigers actually have a pretty decent offense which is not something I would have been able to say at the start of the season, as they looked like one of the worst batting units in the league at that point.
This batting unit now ranks 15th in the league in terms of total runs scored with 482 and they also have an impressive team batting average of .241 which has them in 16th and with guys like Jonathan Schoop cruising those offensive numbers might actually improve by the end of the season.
Matt Manning gets the call to the hill for this one and he enters this contest with a 5.59 ERA and a 2-4 record and he also has not looked very good in his last two outings allowing 9 total earned runs over those last two starts.
The Cleveland Indians are coming into this one after playing a tough Blue Jays game in their return to the Rogers Center, so they certainly are in an easier spot here, but they can’t underestimate this Detroit Tigers side who has proved a lot recently.
The Indians are not likely to get anywhere close to the top of their division trailing Chicago by 9.5, but they are still alive in the Wild Card race, so this will be a series they will be expecting to win and sending Cal Quantrill to the hill is a good way to start this series off on a good foot.
Quantrill has a 3.40 ERA and a 2-2 record and has some serious strike out stuff, so he may be in a good spot here especially since he has been awesome recently only allowing 3 earned runs in his last 3 games.

Free Detroit Tigers vs. Cleveland Indians MLB Prediction:
If the pitching matchup was somewhat even, I would say this is a 50/50 game, but the pitching matchup here is nowhere close to even, as Quantrill has been great in his last few games and I can see him replicating one of those previous 3 games here to put the Indians in a great spot to win this one.
