CLEVELAND -

The Tigers could go up 4.5 games over the Cleveland Indians with a win Sunday afternoon. Detroit will send Doug Fister to the mound against Cleveland's Corey Kluber.

First pitch is at 1:05 p.m.

On Saturday, Tigers' Anibal Sanchez returned with a bang, pitching five innings of one-run ball. 

Sanchez was able to strike out four Indians and looked dominant at times.

The Tigers were backed by a strong offensive output including a big four-run 3rd inning.  The big bats of Miguel Cabrera and Prince Fielder hit back-to-back home runs to get the scoring started.

Torii Hunter was also a major part of the offense as he was a single short of the cycle.  Hunter hit a double, a triple and a 2-run home run in the 6th inning.

On Monday, the Tigers' Max Scherzer will pitch against the Indians as he looks to go 14-0.
