The Tigers finished off a six-game road trip by sweeping a doubleheader from the Minnesota Twins.
Detroit won the opener, 9 to 2……then won the nightcap, 4 to 2.
Those wins – combined with Baltimore’s 5 to 3 loss to Boston – now moves the Tigers a half-game ahead of the Orioles in the chase for the American League’s final playoff spot.
The Tigers now return to Comerica Park to start a seven-game home stand that begins tonight……with a three-game series against the Kansas City Royals.
Michael Fulmer will start for the Tigers and the Royals will send out Danny Duffy.
First pitch this evening is at 7:10.
