The Detroit Tigers need a win to snap a five-game losing streak. The Tigers have scored 14 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in seven of their last 10 games. The Tigers have won five of their last eight when scoring more than three runs. Ian Kinsler leads Detroit with 153 hits and 59 RBI while J.D. Martinez and Jose Iglesias have combined for 107 RBI. The Detroit Tigers have lost five of their last six home games. Justin Verlander takes the hill, and he’s 1-6 with a 3.86 ERA and 62 strikeouts this season. Verlander is 4-6 with a 4.07 ERA and 67 strikeouts in his career against the Angels.
The Angels are 1-8 in their last 9 during game 2 of a series and 1-5 in Santiagos last 6 starts. The Tigers are 6-0 in their last 6 Wednesday games and 2-11 in Verlanders last 13 starts. The Tigers are 1-4 in Verlanders last 5 starts vs. Angels.
Verlander seems to be back on track after allowing just four runs in his last 20 innings. Also, the Angels are struggling big time on the road. Give me one of the top pitchers in the game for the low price.
