CLEVELAND (AP) - Based on the success Detroit’s Anibal Sanchez has achieved versus Cleveland in the past, the Indians might not have an easy time ending their current slide against the Tigers.

Set to be activated from the disabled list, Sanchez looks to help the visiting Tigers to a seventh straight victory over the slumping Indians on Saturday.

Cleveland (45-41) held a one-half game lead in the AL Central on Tuesday, but now trails Detroit by 2 1/2 games after dropping its third straight, 7-0 to the Tigers on Friday.

“I don’t really pay that much attention to the standings until September,” Detroit manager Jim Leyland said. “If this was a four-game series in September, I’d say it’s probably a big series but I would not say that on July 5.”

Winners in four straight overall, the Tigers (47-38) have outscored the Indians 40-18 during their six-game series winning streak. Detroit’s also won three in a row and six of eight at Progressive Field.
