David Price allowed just four hits over 7 1/3 shutout innings and Ian Kinsler went 3-for-4 with a home run and two RBI as the Tigers blanked the Twins 3-0 on Saturday afternoon at Comerica Park to clinch the 2014 American League Central championship.
It’s the fourth straight division title for Detroit.
The Tigers will take on the Orioles in a best-of-five ALDS that begins on Thursday. With a star-filled rotation and a lineup that includes sluggers like Kinsler, Miguel Cabrera, Victor Martinez, and the fast-emerging J.D. Martinez, the Tigers sure have the look of a dangerous postseason team.
We can also now lock the Royals into the American League Wild Card Game. They’ll host it.
