The Tigers have won 23 of their past 28 games and with Friday nights win over the Oakland A’s clinched them the top spot. A place they haven’t seen since 1987 when they won the Eastern A.L. Division.
But keep on keeping on.
They have 11 more games to go in the regular season and if they get more wins than the AL East or AL West champions the Tigers will have home advantage for the playoffs.
So a ways to go yet but with them having already taken first place on July 21 then pulling away and never looking back, tonights season victory clinching number 88 was a sweet one.
