Cleveland comes into this game with a small lead in the AL Central over the White Sox and Twins. Detroit enters this contest on a seven game losing streak and is one of the worst teams in baseball. Cleveland has so much to play for and Detroit is already looking towards next season. I like Cleveland to come away with both wins here and think they win Game 1 by at least two runs.
