Tigers turn to Verlander to counter Indians

DETROIT -- It's almost certain the Cleveland Indians will have some reserves in the starting lineup Tuesday night when they face Justin Verlander and the Detroit Tigers.

Cleveland clinched its first American League Central Division title since 2007 on Monday night with a 7-4 victory over Detroit, which means manager Terry Francona will give some of his veterans a night off.

The Indians won't flood the field with September call-ups, though, because they still have a chance to end up with the overall best record in the league. That would grant them home field advantage throughout the playoffs.
