The Detroit Tigers and the Miami Marlins take the field at Comerica Park in interleague action.
The Miami Marlins have snuck past the Mets for second in the National League East but now the trick is staying there. The surging Marlins had won four of five before losing at Detroit by a 7-5 count on Tuesday. Fish starter Adam Conley gave up five runs on five hits and three BB over 4.1 frames while Nick Wittgren allowed two. Miami pounded out 16 hits with Giancarlo Stanton homered and drove in three while Adeiny Hechevarria went 3-4 and scored twice. The Marlins go with Tom Koehler on the mound who last saw the Tigers in 2013. Koehler did not receive a decision in a 5-4 loss to the Cubs last time out with four runs scored on seven hits and two BB over six innings.

The Detroit Tigers have to find a way to win consistently as they try to chase down Cleveland in the American League Central. The Tigers snapped a three game slide to keep pace in the standings with Cleveland who also won on Tuesday. Detroit starter improved to 2-7 with four runs scored on 12 hits through 5.1 innings while four relievers held Miami at bay. Detroit did their damage on nine hits and three walks with Miguel Cabrera, Jose Iglesias and Nick Castellanos each going deep and driving in all seven runs in the 5th inning. Daniel Norris toes the rubber for the second time this season as he faces Miami for the first time. Norris received a no decision in a 5-4 win versus Seattle with three runs allowed on three solo homers in five frames.
The under is 9-2 in Miami’s last 11 Wednesday games and the over is 8-3 in their last 11 road games while the Marlins are 1-9 in Koehler’s last 10 Wednesday starts. The over is 7-1 in Detroit’s last 8 interleague home games and is 6-2 in their last 8 versus National League East while going 19-7 in their last 26 interleague games. I think the Marlins bounce back here…
