Detroit is 6-0 in their last six home games against a team with a losing road record, 6-2 against the AL Central, and 11-4 against a right-handed starter. Cleveland is 4-0 on the road against a left-handed starter, 5-3 in their last eight games, and 5-2 in Salazar’s last seven starts in game two of a series. Cleveland is 1-5 in their last six meetings with Detroit.
Detroit just looked like the better team on Friday and I have to believe they are better here as well.
