The Detroit Tigers just didn’t have a lot of answers on Saturday as they were clobbered in the Bronx. J.D. Martinez and James McCann each had two hits and Yoenis Cespedes had a hit as the Tigers scored three runs on seven hits. Starting pitcher Alfredo Simon never had a chance allowing eight hits and seven runs while striking out two over 2.2 innings to take the loss and fall to 7-4 for the season. For Sunday’s game the Tigers start Anibal Sanchez who has allowed 82 hits and 47 earned runs while striking out 83 over 91 innings for a 5-7 record and a 4.65 ERA.
New York is 5-0 against the AL Central, 8-1 as a home favorite, and 5-1 in Tanaka’s last six starts as a favorite. Detroit is 6-14 in their last 20 games, 2-7 as an underdog, and 13-6 in Sanchez’s last nine home starts. Detroit has lost their last five against New York.
With the total at 7.5 it is just a lean but my pick here is the over. My stronger pick is on the winning team and I will post that in the Premium Area as well as the App.
