Tigers Win Streak at 6 with Verlander’s 22nd Win
The Detroit Tigers found a way to pick up their 6th win in a row, with their ace not at his sharpest. Justin Verlander won his 10th straight start and earned his 22nd victory overall, and was helped when Victor Martinez hit a late grand slam that powered the Detroit Tigers over the Cleveland Indians 8 – 6. The Tigers now hold a 9 game lead over the Chicago White Sox and a 9 ½ game lead over Cleveland. The Minnesota Twins travel in to start a three series with Brad Penny slated to toe the slab for Detroit.
