The Detroit Tigers have to hope, pitcher Rick Porcello can get things going in Cleveland tonight. The Tigers have had a terrible month of June, and have lost 11 out of the 17 games they played. The starting pitching hasn’t been that great, and the Tigers have fallen out of 1st place in the American League Central.

The Tigers, just can’t seem to get things going this month. Both, Justin Verlander and Max Scherzer have struggled in their last outings. The Tigers offense isn’t producing the numbers we are used to seeing at the plate, and when you add it all up, it’s no wonder the team is only 6-11 this month.

The Tigers have to be going to Cleveland with a bad taste in their mouths. The last time they played the Indians, they were swept. Detroit took the Indians deep in a couple of those games, but they just couldn’t put them away.

For one reason or another the Indians play the Tigers well. Detroit is going to be in or a battle, this weekend. There is no lay down and die, in this Cleveland Indians team, especially when they face the Tigers.

The Tigers are only 2 games ahead of Cleveland, in the standings and if they aren’t playing their best baseball this weekend, they can come out of Cleveland trailing the Indians in the American League Central.

Porcello is going to have to get off to a great start, he is going to have to stay focused if the Tigers are going to have a shot at coming away with a win in-game 1 tonight.
