The Detroit Tigers continue their series versus the Milwaukee Brewers in interleague action.
The Milwaukee Brewers need a long hot streak to right the ship and get back in the National League Central conversation. The Brewers are hoping Monday’s 3-2 win at Detroit is the start of something big with a few clutch hits and great pitching getting the job done. Starter Mike Fiers allowed both runs on six hits and a free pass over 5.2 frames while three relievers held the potent Detroit lineup off the scoreboard. The Brew Crew did just enough scoring on eight hits and a pair of walks with Carlos Gomez going deep and driving in two with Aramis Ramirez connecting on a solo jack. Jimmy Nelson gets the call to the mound in Tuesday’s bout at Comerica Park in Tuesday action. Nelson has been hurt by the long ball the last two times out with given up over 13.2 innings pitched.

If you are the Detroit Tigers then you know every win and every defeat is crucial in the battle with Kansas City for the top spot in the American League Central. That made Monday’s series opening loss to visiting Milwaukee a tough one with the offense never getting in to a groove. The Tigers got a great effort on the mound from Kyle Lobstein who took the loss with all three runs given up on eight hits including a pair of homers through 6.2 innings. The Tigers totaled nine hits and walked twice with Ian Kinsler and James McCann driving in runs. The Tigers turn to Anibal Sanchez for Tuesday’s start against visiting Milwaukee. Sanchez is coming off of his best outing of 2015 where allowed a run and struck out nine in eight innings of a 13-1 win versus Minnesota.
Milwaukee are 8-24 in their last 32 road games while the under is 6-2 in their last 8 interleague games and 11-4 in MIL last 15 Tuesday games. The under is 12-1 in Detroit’s last 13 Tuesday games and is 6-2 in their last 8 overall while going 6-2 in the Tigers last 8 on grass. I think Detroit has the edge here but I’m not fond of Sanchez with big juice…
