The Indians opened the season by taking two of three in Houston, coming within two outs of a combined no-hitter in Thursday's 5-1 win. McAllister (4-7, 5.23 ERA) gets the start for Cleveland. The Tigers haven't needed much help from the bullpen so far. David Price went 8 2-3 innings in an opening-day shutout of Minnesota, Anibal Sanchez went 6 2-3 in an 11-0 victory Wednesday and Shane Greene allowed an unearned run over eight Thursday in a 7-1 win. Detroit hopes Alfredo Simon (15-10, 3.44) can continue their streak of strong starts. An All-Star last season with Cincinnati, Simon was traded to Detroit in December for prospects Jonathon Crawford and Eugenio Suarez. Take Detroit.
