Arizona Diamondbacks vs Detroit Tigers Prediction

I’m on the Tigers here. I’m not really sure what we’re going to get from Matt Manning in his second start since coming back from the IL, but his first start was solid and the Tigers have heads and shoulders been the better team in this series up to this point after I thought maybe the tigers used up all of their runs in Friday’s beatdown. Arizona just continues to be hit or miss and as much as I like Jordan Montgomery, the Tigers do hit lefties fairly well and have the much better bullpen. I’ll roll with Detroit here.
