(AP) — The Detroit Tigers are feeling good after a strong finish to their road trip. Having Justin Verlander on the mound at home against the Baltimore Orioles should have them bursting with confidence.

Detroit opens a nine-game homestand Friday night with the first of three against the Orioles.

After losing three of the first four on their six-game trip, the Tigers (63-55) rebounded with consecutive wins over Minnesota.

“I’m awful proud of our guys,” manager Jim Leyland said.
