Tigers improving, but long road test looms

The Detroit Tigers have won nine of their last 13 games, and are starting to look like the American League Central Division contender a lot of folks expected.

Can the Tigers keep their stride on the road?
Detroit, 17-17 in games away from Comerica Park this season, starts at 10-game road trip tonight when the Tigers open a three-game interleague series at the Pittsburgh Pirates.
It'll be the second 10-game trip in six weeks for the Tigers. In late May, they went 4-6 on a three-city trip, to Cleveland (lost three), Minnesota (won three) and Boston (went 1-3).
After playing Pittsburgh, the Tigers return to American League rivals as they take on defending A.L. champion Texas and then Tampa Bay.
The Tigers have only seven home games between now and July 15, a stretch that includes the All-Star break.
