MLB action brings us to the AL Central where the Detroit Tigers visit the Cleveland Indians.
The Detroit Tigers will be looking to get back in the win column after a 5-4 defeat to Houston saddled the team with four straight losses. Detroit starter Daniel Norris was charged with all five runs on eight hits through 4.2 frames before three relievers put up zeros.
