Tigers facing unexpected challenge from last-placed Reds

What the Detroit Tigers were hoping would be a very big week in Ohio is off to a very slow start.

With the surprising Tigers' biggest series of the season coming up this weekend, they're not getting much time to turn things around.

The Tigers brought a five-game winning streak and plenty of confidence into a week that's beginning with two games against the last-place Reds in Cincinnati and ending with three against the first-place Indians in Cleveland. They started out the week 2 1/2 games behind the Indians in the AL Central, and were talking openly of leaving Cleveland with the division lead on Sunday night.
