Detroit Tigers baseball returns on Friday. The team continues the 2017 regular season at home against Cleveland. Here’s what you need to know to watch the game.

Detroit Tigers players will look to continue the team’s recent run of good form on Friday when they begin a series against Cleveland.

The Tigers have rebounded from an eight-game losing streak to win three of four, including a series victory over Kansas City mid-week.

Thursday saw the team clinch the series win with a 7-3 triumph to close things out.

Justin Upton collected three RBI, two hits and a run scored, while Ian Kinsler scored a trio of runs.

Upton and Kinsler were two of three Tigers, Andrew Romine being the other, to go yard for Detroit.

J.D. Martinez also picked up an RBI for an offense that totaled nine hits, seven RBI, seven runs scored and four walks.

On the pitching side, Michael Fulmer was dominant.

The starter entered the ninth with a chance at a complete game shutout in less than 100 pitches, but coughed up two singles and a double before Eric Hosmer reached base on an error.

That brought the score to 7-3 and manager Brad Ausmus pulled the starter in favor of closer Justin Wilson, who slammed the door, getting Brandon Moss to strike out.

Detroit will now play four games against a Cleveland team in first place in the division.

The Tigers have an excellent opportunity to make up some serious ground in the American League Central standings with a positive series.

So far this season, Upton and company have played Cleveland in two separate series, taking two of three games each time.
