Twins vs Tigers: AL Central Division MLB Saturday Matinee Action
Tigers huge AL Central lead has virtually vanished
It was just a month ago that some pundits were crowning the Cats as American League Central Division Champions. Though the Tigers gaudy 27-12 record at the time, not to mention their seven game lead over Kansas City, gave them reason to do so - the MLB season is grueling 162 game grind. Despite a dreadful 7-17 recent run, the Tigers World Series odds are down to 15/2 from their. While they have stumbled mightily - we still like Detroit (34-29) to get on roll and play in the Fall Classic.
Sanchez vs Deduno: Detroit owns big Battle on the Bump advantage
Since returning from a finger injury, suffered versus the Twins after 2.2 innings back on April 26, 2014, Anibal Sanchez (2-2 ERA 2.24) has been an animal. After a bit of a slow start (3.13 ERA before the injury in April) Sanchez posted a 1.77 ERA in May and has it down to 1.38 in June. In his last last five starts, Detroit's crafty right-hander has given up just six runs, on 21 hits and six walks, and he has 29 strikeouts over 33.1 innings pitched. Minnesota RHP Samuel Deduno (2-4 ERA 4.45) will need to crank it up if he hopes to match his 8-8 record posted in 2013. It's not looking good as the Twins are 4-10 in games Dedunio has started this season.
