    Research Notes

    Miguel Cabrera (DET): Both of his HR on Monday came against a pitch on the inner half. He had hit exactly one HR against a pitch in this zone in his previous 78 games combined. He had 27 HR in this location last season, 2nd in MLB.
    Opponents are hitting .083 in at-bats ending with Corey Kluber's curveball, the best rate in the majors among qualified starters, and his 101 strikeouts with the pitch are most in the AL. The Tigers are hitting .272 in at-bats ending with a curveball, highest in the AL and second in MLB. Miguel Cabrera is hitting .340 in at-bats ending with a curveball, 9th in the AL.
    The Indians led MLB with a team ERA of 2.39 during the month of August... The 9 earned runs (and counting) today are the most allowed by the Tribe in a single game since June 24 against the D-backs (also 9). The 9 ER are also more than Cleveland allowed in its previous 5 games COMBINED (8).
