Game notes: The Tigers go for the sweep win after Tuesday's win over the Guardians, thanks to Riley Greene and Victor Reyes each driving in three in the 11-4 victory. Pineda is making his second start since returning from a finger injury suffered in mid-May. He allowed three runs in five innings vs. the Kansas City Royals last time out.

Bieber has gone between six and seven innings and allowed exactly three runs in each of his past four starts, meaning he's kept the Guardians in games, but has been hittable. He's making his third start of the season vs. the Tigers; he's 1-1, allowing four runs (three earned) over 15 innings with 15 strikeouts.

These two teams meet again next week. On Thursday, the Tigers start a weekend series with the Chicago White Sox and the Guardians get a day off before playing the Kansas City Royals.
