The Detroit Tigers are in the middle of a heated divisional race that seems to have been narrowed down to two teams. The White Sox are in first place in the Central Division, and the Tigers are closing in on them slowly but surely.
It was just two weeks ago that the Tigers swept the White Sox in Comerica Park to take a one and a half game lead in the division. Since then, the Tigers are 6-6, but the White Sox are 9-3 and have taken back the lead in the division by the same one and a half game margin that the Tigers once claimed.
This looks to be a back-and-forth race that could come down to the last week of play and will be worth watching until the end.
There is no doubt that both of these teams have playoff potential and could both very well be World Series contenders, but as for now, the division can only be won by a single team. Here is what the Tigers need to do to make sure that they are that team.
