The madcap race that's been going on in the AL Central may get a bit more interesting if the Cleveland Indians can put up another couple of wins on the Detroit Tigers in their series. Cleveland is currently third in the Central with Detroit in first, three games ahead of Cleveland and just edging the Chicago White Sox.
Cleveland snuck out a win in game one of their series against Detroit thanks to a late run allowed on a bunt and will close the gap by a lot if they pull out another win or even two. It's a good time to seize the day for the Indians at home for the series.
Game two of the series will feature Derek Lowe (8-8, 5.04 ERA) of the Indians taking on Max Scherzer (9-5, 4.61 ERA), who is one of the reasons why Detroit has been so red hot in recent weeks -- the righty has gone 3-0 with a 2.88 ERA in his last three games.
The game will be at Progressive Field at 7:05 p.m. ET.
