The Detroit Tigers take on the Cleveland Indians in a 3 game series starting tonight. The Tigers will be sending Max Scherzer to the mound, he hasn’t lost a game yet this season and the Tigers have to be hoping that his great pitching continues.
The Tigers always have a hard time with the Cleveland Indians. This season the Indians have been red-hot. Detroit only holds a 1-1/2 game lead in the A.L. Central over the Indians and the Indians offense can change the complexion of a game in a single at bat.
Scherzer is going to have to have his good stuff tonight. If he makes any mistakes, this Indians offense will make him pay quickly. The Indians have a way of exposing good pitchers in the 2013 season. Could Scherzer be the exception?
This Indians offense is loaded with power. At anytime this team can light it up offensively. The Tigers pitching staff is going to have to bring their good stuff all weekend if Detroit intends to remain in first place in the A.L. Central.
This series doesn’t mean the Tigers won’t make the playoffs this season. It will show just how good these 2 teams are this season.
