Tigers-Indians Preview

(AP) -- The Detroit Tigers have spent the past three weeks striving to overtake Kansas City in the AL Central, but both clubs have another team almost on their heels.

While hoping to get Miguel Cabrera back, the Tigers will seek to reclaim sole possession of first place and slow down the surging Cleveland Indians on Monday.

Detroit (74-62) will be alone atop the division for the first time since Aug. 10 if it wins for the seventh time in 10 games and Kansas City drops its fourth in a row Monday night.
