Tigers Beat Indians to take First Place
The Tigers were the recipients of good pitching from starter Max Scherzer and relief pitchers Al Albuquerque, Joaquin Benoit and Jose Valverde in route to a 6 – 2 win over Cleveland. The Tigers also picked up back to back homers from Jhonny Peralta and Ryan Raburn to break the game open in the 4th inning. Detroit travels Denver to take on the Colorado Rockies as inter-league play pops up again. Rick Porcello takes the mound for the Tigers to start the series out.
