Two teams who are desperate to head into the break on a high note battle in a 4 game set as Detroit heads north to take on the Blue Jays.
Both teams currently sit within striking distance of their respective division lead and some momentum heading into the All Star break would be a huge feat.
If at first you don’t succeed, try again.
That was the motto for the Detroit Tigers when it came to playing the Indians. Unfortunately for them, it took 12 times to finally make that line successful.
Detroit moved to 1-11 against their AL Central rivals and got back to within 6.5 games of first place with a win on Wednesday to avoid the sweep.
Detroit’s bats finally came to life as they got to Josh Tomlin for an 8 spot and eventually went on to win 12-2.
Justin Verlander gets the nod here for the Tigers, who are trying to make it back to back wins and inch closer in the division.
Verlander struck out 8 in 7.0 innings against the Rays last time out, as he seems to succeed against every team not named the Indians. The RH faced Toronto one time last season and it didn’t go well as he was touched for 7 runs in just 5.0 innings of work.
Toronto Blue Jays
The Toronto Blue Jays helped the Tigers out in their series this week, rattling off 3 wins to sweep the Kansas City Royals.
Toronto now sits just 2.5 games back of the Orioles for first place in the AL East.
The Blue Jays have now won 5 in a row against the AL Central, as they took the final 2 of a 4 game set against Cleveland prior the Royals coming to town. Toronto has seen their offense click on all cylinders, which is a promising sight with Jose Bautista out.
Toronto will send Drew Hutchinson to the hill in what is a spot start here.
Hutchinson replaces Estrada, who will be pushed back due to back issues. Hutchinson has made just one start this year and actually won it, defeating Oakland back on April 24.
