The Tigers are headed for the playoffs for the first time in three consecutive years since 1907-1909. To seal their spot in the American central league division, they will need another win, or an Indians loss.
Max Scherzer, who leads the Majors with 20 wins, is 2-0 with a 2.70 ERA in two starts against Minnesota. He will be making his final regular-season start and is expected to win the AL Cy Young Award.
"You relish these moments," Scherzer said, according to MLB.com. "You play the game to win. You play the game to be on top. And tomorrow we have a chance to be on top of the American League Central. That's always a special moment because it's never easy to get to the playoffs. For me, I'm going to treat it like Game 7 of the World Series, get ready for the playoffs. That's the type of mentality it's going to be in the playoffs. Might as well do it in my last start of the season."
Meanwhile, Twins right-hander Kevin Correia will also make his final start of the season. He's been one of Minnesota's most consistent pitchers, posting a 4.29 ERA in 30 starts.
"Another win isn't really going to change our season that much," Correia said, according to MLB.com. "I'm just going to go out there and throw a good game. Wins and losses are kind of out of our hand but at this point in my career, I'm trying to win games. I'd rather give up a few runs and get the win than throw a good game and not get the win."
