The Detroit Tigers and Toronto Blue Jays decide their series Sunday at the Rogers Centre.
The Tigers have lost four of their last six games and are 12 games above a .500 record. The reason for the recent slump is due to a Tigers offense that can’t put runs on the board, as they’ve produced three or less runs in four of their last six games. Overall, the Tigers have lost 11 straight games when scoring three or less runs. Miguel Cabrera is hitless in his last four games, while Torii Hunter has just two hits in his last seven games. The Tigers have an ERA of 3.95, which is 22nd in the majors. David Price takes the hill, and he’s 11-8 with a 3.11 ERA and has 199 strikeouts in 179.1 innings. Price is 15-2 with a 2.31 ERA in 19 career starts against the Blue Jays.
