Indians Have Decimated The Tigers This Season

The Detroit Tigers are in the hunt for an AL Wild Card spot, but will need to overcome the Cleveland Indians in a four-game series that kicks off Monday. The Tigers have had no luck against the Tribe this season, as Detroit is just 2-13 against Cleveland.

Shark Bites
  • Miguel Cabrera is 20-for-45 with 5 home runs and 10 RBIs in his career against Corey Kluber.
  • The Indians are 7-1 SU in their last 8 games against teams with winning records.
  • The total has gone OVER in 4 of the Indians' last 5 games against the Tigers.

Corey Kluber has completely dumbfounded the Tigers’ lineup this season, as the Cy Young contender is 3-0 with a 1.88 ERA in three starts against Detroit. Tigers’ batters are hitting a measly .146 average against Kluber this season.

Buck Farmer will get another chance to show his stuff in the starting rotation, as the youngster saw his first start of the season rained out last Wednesday. Farmer has a 4.07 ERA in seven big league appearances coming out of the bullpen this year.
