Headline Goes Here

DETROIT - The Cleveland Indians keep losing ground to the Detroit Tigers, who would like to continue that trend when the American League Central rivals continue their three-game series Saturday at Comerica Park.

The Tigers have won three of their last four to begin to create some breathing room atop the division, and they claimed the series opener 7-5 on Friday.

The Indians have lost five straight and are back to .500 less than three weeks after moving a season-best nine games over on May 20. They've seen their 2 1/2-game division lead at that point turn into a 3 1/2-game deficit. The Tigers have won four of six meetings between the teams this season, including three straight.
