Tigers go for sweep of Indians with Verlander on the mound

The Tigers go for the three-game sweep of the Cleveland Indians Sunday afternoon, trying to maintain their slim lead in the American League Central division. Detroit leads Kansas City by a half-game in the division race, and is currently tied with Oakland for the best record among Wild Card contenders, a game better than Seattle.

Should the Tigers complete the sweep, it would be their first — home or road — since beating the Rockies three straight at Comerica Park on Aug. 1-3.
