The Detroit Tigers have won six of their last 10 games and are 13 games above .500. The Tigers pitching staff continues its shaky ways, allowing four or more runs in six of their last eight games. Overall, the Detroit Tigers have an ERA of 4.03, which is 23rd in the majors, and they’ve lost five of their last seven when allowing more than three runs. Offensively, Miguel Cabrera has 11 hits in his last five games and Victor Martinez has hit in nine of his last 10 games. Starting is David Price, who is 13-10 with a 3.25 ERA and has 232 strikeouts in 210.1 innings. This is Price’s second career game against the Giants.
The Giants are 4-1 in Bumgarners last 5 road starts and 7-3 in Bumgarners last 10 starts overall. The Tigers are 9-3 in their last 12 interleague games and 91-44 in their last 135 interleague games as a favorite.
The Giants have to cool off eventually and there's no better time than facing David Price for seven innings. Give me the Tigers to bounce back.
