The Cleveland Indians get the day off today, then it is a trip to Kansas City to take on the Royals for a 3 game series. After the series with K.C., the Tribe takes on the Detroit Tigers for a 4 game series that could help them extend their lead in the A.L. Central.
The Indians have to continue to play the kind of baseball this team is capable of playing,especially when they face Detroit. The Tigers are struggling a bit and they have lost 6 out of their last 10 games. The Tigers are presently in a 2 game losing streak.
The Indians have won 7 of their last 10 games and have a 4 game winning streak going. You can bet the Indians will face some of the best pitching MLB has to offer when they take on the Tigers. Each time Cleveland has faced Detroit this season, they have faced some of the teams best pitchers.
This series will be no different. Detroit always seems to throw Verlander at the Tribe and with the way Scherzer has been pitching this season, the Tribe gets no break with him either. Cleveland has a chance to pull away a bit from the Tigers.
If they can take this series from Detroit, they can get a lead and stay in first place in the A.L. Central. It is going to be an exciting 4th of July weekend in Cleveland when the Tigers gets to Progressive field to take on the Cleveland Indians. Get down there to support the Tribe.
