Indians-Tigers Preview

(AP) -- After an inconsistent season while pitching under the pressure of a sizable new contract, Justin Verlander has gotten off to a solid start in 2014.

No matter how well he pitches, though, the Detroit Tigers are going to need to start putting more runs on the board.

Verlander takes the mound as Detroit looks to break out of its slump Thursday against the visiting Cleveland Indians.
