The Tigers are beginning to create some distance again in the American League Central standings.

Anibal Sanchez pitched efficiently in his first start back from the 15-day disabled list and Torii Hunter, Miguel Cabrera and Prince Fielder combined for a total of six RBI as Detroit topped Cleveland 9-4 on Saturday afternoon at Progressive Field. The Tigers are now up 3 1/2 games over the Indians in the hunt for the division title and can push that lead out to 5 1/2 games with a sweep of this four-game series (which will reach its conclusion on Monday night).

The Tigers have scored the second-most runs in the major leagues and their 3.75 staff ERA ranks ninth. Detroit’s +93 run differential is second in the bigs only to the Cardinals, who are currently +121.
