Tigers-Rays Preview

(AP) -- The Detroit Tigers showed the kind of mettle that make them the reigning three-time AL Central champions to open this crucial seven-game road trip.

They're counting on Rick Porcello to display some of his own Wednesday night as their series continues versus the Rays at Tampa Bay.

Locked in a battle for the second wild-card spot - the Tigers (67-56) are one percentage point ahead of Seattle - and chasing Kansas City in the division, Detroit overcame an early 4-0 deficit to defeat the Rays 8-6 in 11 innings Tuesday. Victor Martinez drove home a tiebreaking run with a bases-loaded walk and Joe Nathan converted his 26th save despite allowing a run in his inning of work for the second straight appearance.
