The Detroit Tigers will look to pick up a big road win and move closer to the .500 mark, as they take on the Cleveland Indians at Progressive Field in Cleveland Ohio this Sunday.
The Detroit Tigers really were looking like the worst team in the league throughout the first month of the season, but they have really proven the promise that this roster has with a young and exciting pitching staff and a very capable batting lineup.
The batting lineup really has been the catalyst to get this team where they are right now with guys like Schoop and Haase really stepping up and powering this team forward and it will be very interesting to see where the general management of this team goes this offseason in terms of roster moves.
Wily Peralta is the starting pitcher here for the visitors and he has been impressive during a limited sample size so far this year putting up a record of 3-2 and a nice ERA of 3.47, and with the inconsistency of this Indians batting lineup he may be set up for success here.
This Cleveland Indians still have a slight chance of winning this division as they are 9.5 games back of Chicago, but their recent form has not exactly helped their cause going 3-5 in their last 8 games.
They did face a tough task in their recent series with the Blue Jays where they were only able to pick up 1 win out of their 4 games with the Blue Birds, but regardless they need to start picking up games regardless of the opponent if they are to get anywhere close to a playoff spot.
Zach Plesac will be looking to provide a quality start and put his team in a position to win and he might be able to do just that entering the game with a decent 4.64 ERA and a 6-4 record, but again, this Detroit Tigrs batting lineup cannot be underestimated, so he will need to bring his A-game here.

Free Detroit Tigers vs. Cleveland Indians MLB Prediction:
The Detroit Tigers batting lineup I have plenty of faith in and Zach Plesac has been decent this year, but I think Detroit has what it takes to hit him and put up a solid amount of runs. On the other side of this game I also can see the Indians having success against Peralta, as they have finally got healthy with their offense and I can see them getting on a roll and I would not be surprised if it starts here.
