The Detroit Tigers continue their visit at the Toronto Blue Jays in a Saturday MLB tilt.
The Detroit Tigers have been in a funk and found no relief Friday in a 3-2 loss at Toronto. Detroit starter Francisco Liriano threw the ball well in defeat with all three runs on seven hits and four BB over six frames to fall to 3-4.

The Tigers offense consisted of six hits with Jeimer Candelario cracking his 12th long ball while JaCoby Jones scored an unearned run. Matthew Boyd toes the rubber at the Rogers Centre n game two of the series at Toronto. Boyd has struggled the past two outings with eleven runs plated on 14 hits and five BB over seven frames.
The Toronto Blue Jays are gunning for another win versus visiting Detroit after squeezing by the Tigers on Friday night. Toronto starter Marcus Stroman won his first of the season with two runs surrendered on five hits through seven innings.
The Blue Jays offense did their damage on eight hits and six walks with Justin Smoak clubbing a two run bomb while Randal Grichuk went 2-4 with an RBI.
Sam Gaviglio draws Saturday’s starting assignment against visiting Detroit. Gavglio did not receive a decision in a 7-6 win at the LA Angels last time out with three runs given up over 4.2 innings.
Detroit are 0-9 in their last 9 overall and under is 11-4 in Detroit last 15 road games and Detroit are 19-44 in their last 63 road games. Toronto are 8-1 in their last 9 home games and Toronto are 3-8 in their last 11 Saturday games and under is 33-14-5 in Toronto last 52 Saturday games. Detroit are 2-10 in the last 12 meetings in Toronto and over is 6-2 in the last 8 meetings.
I’m not thrilled at all with the pitching matchup but I think Gaviglio has struggled less then Boyd…
