Tigers Vs. Indians Preview: Rick Porcello Looks To Get Back On Track

Last season, the Tigers were able to feast on the bottom-dwellers of the AL Central en route to the division title.

But this year, Detroit is 5-8 against the woeful Indians after Monday's loss — the only AL Central team with a winning record against the Tigers, who will send Rick Porcello to the mound Tuesday looking to get back on track in the second game of a three-game series.

Porcello has lost four straight starts, although he hasn't allowed more than three earned runs in either of his last three. The Indians will counter with Justin Masterson.

Game Date & Time: Tuesday, Sept. 4, 7:05 p.m. ET

TV: FOX Sports Detroit

Radio: 97.1
