The Guardians won the 2021 season series 12-7, continuing a pattern of supremacy over the Tigers.

Detroit won a paltry 36.8% of its video games vs. Cleveland in 2021, however that’s its greatest portion because 2015 (do not advise fans about the 1-18 record in 2019). The Tigers have actually won 5 of their last 17 at Progressive Field.
