Rick Porcello didn’t have his best outing, he gave up 7 hits and 4 runs in the 4 innings he pitched. The Tigers somehow pulled off their 3rd in a row and they got some unexpected help from the Cleveland Indians  who beat the White Sox 2 games in a row to give the Tigers a one game lead over the White Sox. The Tigers would find themselves trailing to the Kansas City Royals 4-1 in the 4th inning, Porcello let the Royals score 3 runs in the 3rd and he gave up another run in the 4th.

The Tigers would launch their own 4th inning charge. Alex Avila got things going with a 2 run blast and Austin Jackson hit a home run of his own to tie the game at 4. The Tigers would get the winning run in the 8th when Jhonny Peralta grounded out to 3rd that would drive in Don Kelly. Now that Detroit is on top of the American League Central can they stay there? With 7 games left in the regular season the Tigers have to find a way to hold on.

Do you think the Tigers will finish in the lead in the A.L. Central? Let us know, leave your comments below….
