Alex Wilson and Anibal Sanchez combined for three innings of scoreless relief as the Tigers won their second straight game. The 85-mph slider capped a seven-pitch battle, which sent the game to the ninth inning with the Tribe in front.

On the northern side of this slow-moving moisture laden system, periods heavy rainfall will be likely from the Midwest across the Ohio Valley this week. The greatest rain chances are during the late afternoon and evening hours. Storms will develop in the southwest and push towards the northeast.

A Severe Thunderstorm Watch is in effect until 6 PM for Pueblo, Crowley, Otero, Bent, Huerfano, and Las Animas counties.

Now that we are past that, the odds may go down some, but we don't really come out of tornado season until the end of May. As you can see in the graph above, hail looks to be the primary threat. We'll see another chance of scattered storms Tuesday into next week.
