Indians fans know that this is going to be the best opportunity in the world to jump on the Tigers. Detroit holds a very slender 1.5-game lead in the AL Central, but it has been on a massive road trip. The first seven games have resulted in a 4-3 record, and these last four are going to be tough, especially since the team hasn’t had a day off since June 24th. Remember that RHP Justin Verlander is going to be avoided on this swing. Friday’s pitching matchup is the most favorable for the Tribe as well, and we think they are going to take advantage of it. RHP Rick Porcello deserves better than a 4-6 record and a 5.21 ERA, and his 1.29 WHIP shows just that. Batters have been getting timely hits off of him all season long, and though that is destined to change, this probably won’t be the night in which it occurs. Cleveland’s RHP Justin Masterson has already put together three complete game shutouts on the season, and his 10-6 record is every bit indicative of how well he has pitched on the season. Don’t be all that shocked if Masterson comes up with another gem in this one, as he pitches Cleveland to a big time victory to get back within just a half game of the AL Central-leading Tigers.
