We have been monitoring this series between the Indians and the Tigers all week long, and we definitely love what we see out of Detroit and hate what we see out of Cleveland. The Indians are in a heck of a lot of trouble right now, as they have been beaten in each of the first three games of this series by relatively small margins. It almost seems as this each of these games is a microcosm of the season. The Indians have found a way to get close to Detroit this year, but they have never really figured out how to get over the hump. Now, in relatively damning fashion, the Tigers have exploded by winning this three games, opening up a huge gap in the standings between these two teams. Now, RHP Max Scherzer, who is 16-1 on the season, is going to be on the hill for this one on Thursday night. It doesn’t bode well for sure for a Cleveland club that just hasn’t hit the ball well in clutch situations this whole series. RHP Zach McAllister is going to have to literally pitch the perfect game to be able to stand toe-to-toe with Scherzer, and we don’t see him being able to do it. There’s a reason that Detroit has won 11 of the last 12 meetings in this series, and there’s a reason that the team has taken six of the seven meetings thus far this season here at Progressive Field. Roll with the Tigers once again on Thursday night.
