Cubs look for an awakening of bats against Tigers

The Ambassador Bridge connects Detroit to Canada. This week, Detroit becomes to bridge that the Chicago Cubs must pass through between important division games.

The Cubs split six games against National League Central opponents Milwaukee and Pittsburgh last week. They'll make a two-game pit stop in Detroit this week before returning home for four games against last-place Cincinnati.

While trying to hold off Milwaukee and surging St. Louis, first-place Chicago hopes to regains its offensive punch against the pitching-deficient Tigers. The Cubs have scored a single run in each of their last four games and were fortunate to win two of them.
