The Tigers and the other 29 major league teams will be back in action tonight to start the second half of the season following a four day break for the All-Star game. The American League pitched a three-hit shutout on the National League on Tuesday, taking a 3-0 victory to earn home field advantage in the World Series. A-L Central leading Detroit would like to bring the Fall Classic to Motown this year to avenge the Tigers’ loss to the Giants in the 2012 World Series. The Tigers have a game-and-a-half edge on the second place Indians in the Central and tonight Detroit starts a six game road trip opening up with a 3-game series at Kansas City. Anibal Sanchez goes to the mound for the Tigers against the Royals’ Ervin Santana.
