Tigers in a hole against the Indians

DETROIT (AP) — When the Detroit Tigers won the AL Central every year from 2011-14, the title often seemed to come down to a handful of head-to-head match ups between the champions and their closest challengers.

The Tigers consistently won those games during that impressive stretch, but so far this year, the roles are reversed.

Detroit’s 9-3 loss to Cleveland on Sunday dropped the Tigers to 0-9 against the first-place Indians this season. Cleveland has outscored the Tigers 60-20 in those games, and because of that ineptitude against the AL Central’s top team, Detroit is seven games out of first place as it heads into a series against Miami starting tonight.

Mike Pelfrey is set to start tonight’s series opener in Detroit for the Tigers. The Marlins will counter with left-hander Adam Conley.
