DETROIT, MI (WTVB) - It’s the first place Tigers taking on the third place Indians tonight in Detroit as the Central Division rivals begin the second half of the season after the All-Star break with a 4-game series at Comerica Park. The Tigers 53-38 record is the third best in the majors and leaves them six and half games up in the Central over the Royals with the Indians 7-and-a half back.

Detroit DH Victor Martinez is expected to return to the lineup tonight against Cleveland after being sidelined since the Fourth of July with a strained lower right side. Anibal Sanchez goes to the mound tonight for the Tigers, who will play a day-night doubleheader tomorrow and then after Sunday’s matchup with the Indians, Detroit heads west for a 7-game road trip with stops at Arizona and Anaheim.
