Detroit Tigers: What You Should Know vs Baltimore Orioles
Detroit Tigers players head home after a series loss in Chicago. Miguel Cabrera and company will begin a series against the Baltimore Orioles on Friday. Here’s what you should know.
Detroit Tigers fans are once again wrapped up in a pennant race.
After a down year, the Tigers are back in the thick of the playoff race. Thanks to a second-half turnaround, the team is in the thick of things in both the American League Central race and the race for one of the American League Wild Card berths.
With this weekend’s series against the Baltimore Orioles kicking off at 7:10 PM ET on Friday at Comerica Park, the Wild Card race will likely come up a lot in discussion.
The O’s currently sit in the second Wild Card place and just one game behind Toronto for the first of the two Wild Card places. Detroit, meanwhile, is just a game behind Baltimore.
This is all without mentioning the four teams (New York, Houston, Kansas City and Seattle) that sit within five games of Baltimore.
Suffice to say, there is plenty riding on the series for the Tigers.
Michael Fulmer will kick things off as he takes the mound on Friday night opposite Kevin Gausman. Here’s what you should know heading into the series.
