(AP) — The Detroit Tigers are rolling after a four-game sweep, though they may be facing a stiffer challenge to start the week as they look to continue their winning ways.

The Tigers go for their fifth straight victory as they open a two-game series against the Washington Nationals on Tuesday night.

Detroit swept woeful Houston to close last week to give it nine wins in 10 games, outscoring opponents 74-25 in that stretch. Justin Verlander didn’t allow a hit into the seventh inning of a 9-0 victory Sunday and four Tigers homered.

Detroit (19-11) has batted .316 with 19 homers in the last 10 while posting a 2.27 ERA with 117 strikeouts in 95 innings.
