Jim Leyland disagrees with the notion that the Tigers are having a letdown after sweeping the Chicago White Sox.
After gaining a tie for first in the AL Central during the weekend, Detroit fell back when it lost Monday while Chicago was beating Minnesota.
The Tigers lost a second consecutive one-run game to Cleveland on Tuesday night, falling 3-2. Detroit is now 17-21 in games decided by the slimmest of margins.
“It’s like Manny (Acta, the Indians manager) said,” Leyland noted. “They pitch good against us.
“As for the talk we’ve had a big-series hangover, that’s totally false. In the first inning (Monday), we loaded the bases and had scored a run with one out.”
