DETROIT (AP) – While the Detroit Tigers own a comfortable lead in the AL Central, they have a chance to really distance themselves from one of the teams in pursuit.

Detroit tries to extend its season-high home winning streak to 10 on Thursday night when it opens a five-game set against the Kansas City Royals.

The Tigers (70-49) had dropped three straight and four of five before bouncing back with Wednesday’s 6-4 road win over the Chicago White Sox. Miguel Cabrera, who has six homers and 14 RBIs over the last eight days, stayed hot with a three-run shot to help Detroit conclude a 6-4 trip.

“It was a tough road trip, a battle,” Torii Hunter told the Tigers’ official website. “We enjoy this day and we’ve got five with a team that’s behind us, chasing us.”
