Tigers Look To End Road Woes Before All-Star Break

The Detroit Tigers are likely more than happy to be done with the first half of the season, as they sit fourth in the AL Central and 10 games under .500. One of their biggest issues has been their dreadful play on the road with the Tigers going 15-28 away from the Motor City, which includes going 1-8 in their past nine. The Tigers will look to try to enter the break with a positive when they visit the Cleveland Indians on Sunday night.

Shark Bites
  • Miguel Cabrera is 22-for-52 with 6 HRs and 12 RBIs in his career against Corey Kluber.
  • The Tigers are 5-13 in their past 18 road games against the Indians.
  • The total is 12-5 in the Indians’ last 17 games.

All-star Michael Fulmer has had a lot of issues against the Indians during his young career. Fulmer’s 6.98 ERA against the Tribe is the highest he has recorded against any team during his time in the majors. The 24-year-old, who has not faced the Indians this season, has been performing well lately with a 2.67 ERA in his past four outings.

Fulmer will not be the only all-star pitcher making a start Sunday night, as Corey Kluber will trot to the bump. The righty has allowed just seven earned runs in his 51 innings of work dating back to the beginning of June. In that span, Kluber has thrown 70 percent of his pitches for strikes and has registered 74 Ks to just eight walks.
