The Detroit Tigers look for consistency after splitting their last 12 games. The Tigers have scored 22 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in five of their last six games. The Detroit Tigers offense has picked up recently, and they’ve won seven of their last 10 games when scoring more than three runs. Ian Kinsler leads Detroit with 70 hits, Victor Martinez has 34 RBI and Miguel Cabrera has 12 home runs. Michael Fulmer takes the hill, and he’s 5-1 with a 3.24 ERA and 44 strikeouts this season. This will be Fulmer’s first career game against the Blue Jays.
The Blue Jays are 4-1 in their last 5 during game 1 of a series and 7-3 in Happs last 10 starts. The Tigers are 7-2 in their last 9 home games and 5-0 in Fulmers last 5 starts. The Blue Jays are 4-0 in the last 4 meetings.
Both teams are hitting the ball well right now, but it's the Blue Jays who are one of the hotter teams in the league. Also, Happ has been pretty solid this season and should have the edge over Fulmer. I like Toronto and the even money..
