Tigers defeat Indians, Can they keep winning, and get back into first place

The Tigers have ended their losing streak and are 1/2 game behind Cleveland in the central division. They beat the tribe 2 to 1. The game also marked the return the triumphant returns of Joel Zumaya and Placido Polanco.

Jair Jurrjens and Zumaya masterly pitched. Magglio Ordenz and Carlos Guillen sparkled by powering back to back homers. Polanco also extended his error less streak.

My question is this. Why couldn't the Tigers play this well during the last month? With the losses to Cleveland & the Yankees during the last week , fans were asking. What happened? Can Detroit make a repeat trip to the playoffs?

Maybe these losses were needed to wake the team up. Maybe Jim Leyland put some fear into them. Maybe they needed to get their stride. Maybe their losing steak was a fluke.
Whatever the case is boys, keep it up and you will get back into the playoffs.
