Angels-Tigers Preview 7-17-12

(AP) — While the Detroit Tigers are heating up at home, the Los Angeles Angels are suddenly struggling on the road.

The surging Tigers look to extend their season-best home winning streak to seven games Tuesday night against the Angels.

Quintin Berry had three hits and Brennan Boesch hit a tiebreaking two-run homer to help Detroit (47-43) rally for an 8-6 win over Los Angeles on Monday. The Tigers, who have won eight of nine overall to move within 2 1/2 games of first-place Chicago in the AL Central, trailed 5-2 before scoring six runs in their final four offensive innings.

Detroit has averaged 6.5 runs during its six-game home winning streak. It has not won seven in a row at Comerica Park since a nine-game run June 2-18, 2010.
