The Detroit Tigers also need a win after splitting their last eight games. The Tigers have scored 15 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in five of their last 10 games. The Tigers have won five straight games when scoring more than three runs. Ian Kinsler leads Detroit with 48 hits and 19 RBI while Miguel Cabrera and Yoenis Cespedes have combined for 53 RBI. The Detroit Tigers have split their last 10 games on their home field. Kyle Lobstein takes the hill, and he’s 3-3 with a 4.33 ERA and 16 strikeouts this season. This will be Lobstein’s first career game against the Brewers.
The Brewers are 4-11 in their last 15 during game 1 of a series and 2-8 in Fiers' last 10 starts. The Tigers are 16-7 in their last 23 during game 1 of a series and 1-4 in Lobsteins last 5 home starts.
Fiers hasn't been good at all this season, and the Tigers will be eager to bounce back after losing a frustrating game Sunday night. Give me the Tigers and the reasonable chalk.
