DETROIT -- The Detroit Tigers longest winning streak of the season ended Thursday. Theyll try to get another one going this weekend when they face another team fighting for a playoff spot.The New York Mets, coming off a four-game split with the crosstown rival Yankees, will make their first journey to Detroits Comerica Park since June 2011. The three-game showdown begins on Friday night.Detroit dropped three games behind American League Central Division leader Cleveland with a 6-3 loss to the Chicago White Sox on Thursday afternoon.You try to win every series, Tigers catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia said. Its been a great eight-win run, so now were going to start a new one.Following a down year in which they finished last in the division, the Tigers have re-established themselves as a contender. Despite losing the series finale to the White Sox, theyre still 10 games over .500.Its awesome. Thats what helps teams get through August and September, right fielder J.D. Martinez said. Its a long last couple of months if youre out of it. Youre kind of just grinding through and the clubhouse is just miserable. Last year, thats kind of how it felt. Its just tough to go out there and play. But when you know youre in it and youve got a shot to make it to the playoffs, theres nothing like it.The Tigers will send out the American League Pitcher of the Month for July in the series opener. Justin Verlander compiled a 4-0 record in six starts last month, including a complete-game victory over Houston on Saturday when he recorded a season-high 11 strikeouts.Cameron Maybins status for the weekend series is uncertain. The Tigers center fielder suffered a mildly sprained thumb on his glove hand while diving for a ball on Wednesday and did not play on Thursday.The Tigers wont see the slugging outfielder they traded last season. Mets left fielder Yoenis Cespedes was placed on the 15-day disabled list after he aggravated a right quad strain during a 9-5 loss to the Yankees on Wednesday.The Mets were planning to use him as a designated hitter during the weekend series before the pain persisted. He appeared in 14 of 21 games after initially suffering the injury on July 8 and hit just .227 with one homer in that span.Its a little frustrating, Cespedes told the New York Times and other media members through an interpreter. Ive missed games and lost my timing trying to get back on the field to help the team, and I cant.The addition of slugger Jay Bruce at the trade deadline softens the blow. Bruce hit his first homer with the Mets, a three-run shot, in a 4-1 win over the Yankees on Thursday. The Mets will still miss Cespedes presence in the middle of the order.He was a huge factor. Were not going to mistake that, Mets manager Terry Collins said. He was a huge factor. But weve gone through this (all) year, with not just Ces but a lot of guys. ... Theres going to be a lot of guys in that clubhouse right now who have to do a little bit more.Right-hander Noah Syndergaard will be seeking his first win in five starts when he opposes Verlander. Syndergaard has two losses and two no-decisions in that span, though he has only given up seven earned runs. He took a no-decision in his last start on Sunday against Colorado, allowing three runs -- two earned -- with six strikeouts in six innings.The Tigers will be facing Syndergaard, who is pitching with a bone spur in his elbow, for the first time.
