The Detroit Tigers look for a win after splitting their last six games. The Tigers have scored 19 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in four of their last five games. The Tigers have split their last six games when scoring more than three runs. Miguel Cabrera leads Detroit with 69 hits and 39 RBI while Yoenis Cespedes and Ian Kinsler have combined for 55 RBI. The Detroit Tigers have lost five of their last six home games. Shane Greene takes the hill, and he’s 4-5 with a 5.40 ERA and 41 strikeouts this season. This will be Greene’s first career game against the Cubs.
The Cubs are 6-2 in their last 8 during game 2 of a series and 4-1 in Arrietas last 5 road starts. The Tigers are 66-23 in their last 89 interleague home games and 2-5 in Greenes last 7 starts. The Cubs are 0-4 in the last 4 meetings in Detroit.
The Tigers are too good of a team to keep losing on their home field. They won on Tuesday, and I like the value of the plus money for them to get another.
