Tigers Vs. Indians Lineups: Anibal Sanchez, Corey Kluber To Duel

The Detroit Tigers completed a much-needed sweep over the AL Central-leading Chicago White Sox on Sunday, and in doing so brought themselves into a tie for the division. Both teams sport a 72-61 record, while the team in third-place sits a full 12 games back of the division lead. Detroit's next opponent, the Cleveland Indians, is 16.5 games back of the lead.

This is a stark contrast to the beginning of the season, when the Indians were in the lead in the division and were beating Detroit at every turn. They were one of the most surprising teams, but quickly fell behind, especially after the All-Star Break. Now, the Tigers are riding a three-game winning streak (which comes after a three-game losing streak), while the Indians have dropped 16 of their last 18 games.

Corey Kluber and Anibal Sanchez will be taking the mound for their respective teams. Both the Indians and Tigers are changing more than a couple players around in their linups. The game is set for 1:05 p.m. and we've got the full lineups for both teams below.
