The defending American League champions are 10-9 in May, after an 11-7 victory at Cleveland on Wednesday. Detroit trails the AL Central-leading Indians by a half-game. … Entering Wednesday, the Tigers led the majors in scoring, and had struck out more batters than any AL team but Boston. … They are 13-7 at home, the fewest home losses in the American League. … Their bullpen has blown six of its 14 save opportunities. … Detroit won’t use former MVP Justin Verlander in this series, but Sunday starter Max Scherzer is coming off a performance in which he retired 22 consecutive hitters in Cleveland. … Entering Wednesday, reigning MVP Miguel Cabrera leads the AL in batting average (.384) and RBI (49), and is second in home runs (12). Prince Fielder is third in RBI with 38.
