The American League Central division is the home of one of baseball’s hottest teams. The Detroit Tigers were cooled just a bit yesterday. They were riding an eight-game winning streak, but the streak ended with a 6-2 loss to the Houston Astros. Yes, you read that correctly.

The Tigers are 8-2 over their last 10 games. Only the Miami Marlins have a better record (9-1) over their last 10.

A few other notes…

When could Chris Sale return?

The Cleveland Indians are playing rather well in the absence of Jason Kipnis.

Kansas City got a stellar outing last night. Too bad Danny Duffy could be returning to the bullpen.

The Minnesota Twins have had a pair of outfilders hit the 7-day concussion disabled list. Some aid might not be that far from returning.

Here’s a look at the standings as of end of play, May 8, 2014

Team W L PCT GB
Detroit 20 10 .667
