The Cincinnati Reds and Detroit Tigers meet Sunday in game two of an MLB doubleheader at Tiger Stadium.
The Cincinnati Reds need a win after losing five of their last six games. The Reds have scored 19 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in five of their seven games. The Reds have lost three of their last five games when scoring four or more runs. Nick Castellanos leads the Reds with nine hits and eight RBI while Joey Votto and Freddy Galvis have combined for 12 hits and 10 RBI. Trevor Bauer gets the ball, and he is 0-0 with a 1.42 ERA and 13 strikeouts this season. Bauer is 10-6 with a 5.11 ERA and 135 strikeouts in his career against the the Tigers.
The Detroit Tigers look for a win after winning five of their last seven games. The Tigers have scored 15 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in five of their last seven games. The Tigers have won four of their last five games when scoring four or more runs. JaCoby Jones leads the Tigers with 11 hits and seven RBI while Jonathan Schoop and Austin Romine have combined for 15 hits and 10 RBI.

Will update with trends once they're released.
The Cincinnati Reds have their ace on the hill and it should make them the favorites in this contest, however, it's the Detroit Tigers who have been playing the better baseball up to this point. With an impressive offense that's come out of nowhere, the Tigers could pack some betting value in the underdog role as long as it lasts. It's always tough to pick game two of a doubleheader without knowing what happened in the first game, but you have to like what you're seeing from the Tigers right now.
In game two of this doubleheader, give me the Tigers based on current play and the fact the Reds can't finish a game.
