(AP) — Judging by their recent results in Boston, a visit to Fenway Park wouldn’t appear to help the Detroit Tigers in their quest to return to first place in the AL Central.

The Tigers, though, will have Max Scherzer on the mound for Monday night’s series opener against the Boston Red Sox, who will seek their first three-game win streak in nearly six weeks.

As it enters the final series of a nine-game trip, Detroit (54-48) trails Chicago by 1 1/2 games in the Central and is heading to a ballpark where it’s lost seven of eight.

The Tigers dropped the first three games during their most recent visit at the end of May before Scherzer (10-5, 4.49 ERA) helped them earn a 7-3 victory in the series finale.
