The Oakland Athletics look to sweep the Detroit Tigers Thursday afternoon.
The Oakland Athletics look to stay hot after winning five of their last six games. The Athletics have scored 14 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in four of their last eight games. The Athletics have won seven straight games when scoring more than three runs. Marcus Semien leads Oakland with 59 hits and 16 RBI while Billy Butler and Josh Reddick have combined for 58 RBI. The Oakland Athletics have won four straight road games. Jesse Hahn gets the nod, and he’s 2-5 with a 3.77 ERA and 40 strikeouts this season. This will be Hahn’s second career game against the Tigers.

The Detroit Tigers look to snap a six-game losing streak. The Tigers have scored six runs in their last three games and three or less runs in eight of their last nine games. The Tigers have lost five straight when scoring three or less runs. Miguel Cabrera leads Detroit with 64 hits and 35 RBI while Yoenis Cespedes and Ian Kinsler have combined for 50 RBI. The Detroit Tigers have lost four straight home games. Shane Greene takes the hill, and he’s 4-4 with a 5.19 ERA and 39 strikeouts this season. This will be Greene’s second career game against the Athletics.
The Athletics are 7-22 in their last 29 during game 3 of a series and 1-6 in Hahns last 7 starts. The Tigers are 11-5 in their last 16 during game 3 of a series and 1-5 in their last 6 games as a favorite. The over is 18-7-2 in the last 27 meetings in Detroit.
It's only a matter of time before the Tigers turn things around, but I'm not going to turn down plus money until they do. So, the A's have to be the pick.
