The Houston Astros shoot for another win against the Detroit Tigers at Comerica Park.
The Houston Astros look to get back to their winning ways with the Angels bearing down on them in the American League West. The Astros ended a two a game skid with a 3-2 victory at Comerica Park on Saturday. Starter Lance McCullers was solid in his second career start with both runs plated on six hits over six frames with four relievers holding Detroit at bay. The offense did just enough on eight hits and three walks with Jose Altuve, Jason Castro and Marwin Gonzalez driving in runs. Roberto Hernandez shoots for another quality start when he takes the bump against the heavy hitting Tigers. Hernandez defeated Oakland 6-4 last time out with two runs allowed on seven hits over six innings.

The Detroit Tigers are looking to get and stay hot as they try to overtake Kansas City for first in the American League Central. The Tigers saw their three game winning streak come to an end Saturday with the offense held in check. Starter Kyle Lobstein was charged with all three runs on seven hits and three BB through 5.2 innings to absorb the loss. The Tigers potent offense was held to six hits and a walk with Anthony Gose doubling in both runs while Jose Iglesias going 2-2 with a run. The Tigers are slated to start Anibal Sanchez to the hill against the visiting Astros Sunday. Sanchez was hit hard in his last outing with seven runs plated on seven hits including three homers in 3.2 frames.
The over is 11-4-1 in Houston’s last 16 road games while the Astros are 7-3 in their last 10 overall and 7-3 in their last 10 games on grass. The Tigers are 2-6 in Sanchez’s last 8 starts and are 2-6 in Sanchez’s last 8 starts on grass while Detroit are 6-2 in Sanchez’s last 8 Sunday starts. Houston are 2-11 in the last 13 meetings in Detroit and are 4-13 in the last 17 meetings. I’m picking Detroit but I won’t bet the over rated Sanchez…
