Detroit has won five in a row, but Cleveland is still holding onto the No. 2 spot.
The Cleveland Indians are just hanging on to second place in the American League Central at the All-Star break. After splitting a four-game series against the Tampa Bay Rays, the Indians (44-41) are just a half game ahead of the surging Detroit Tigers (44-42).
In first place are the Chicago White Sox (47-38) and Cleveland hopes it can make up some ground against them with some wins against the Toronto Blue Jays after the break. They will play a four-game series in Toronto starting Friday, then head to Tampa Bay for four games.
The White Sox will be heading to Kansas City and the Tigers will take their five-game winning streak to Baltimore after the All-Star festivities. It'll be interesting to see how the tight division race will look at the end of the month.
