The Detroit Tigers and Philadelphia Phillies meet Tuesday in MLB action at Citizens Bank Park. Let’s preview this game and give out a pick and prediction.
Detroit Tigers Betting Preview
The Detroit Tigers have scored 6 runs in their last 3 games and 3 or fewer runs in 5 straight games. The Tigers have lost 10 of their last 11 games when scoring 3 or fewer runs. Riley Greene leads the Tigers with 60 hits and 18 RBI, while Spencer Torkelson and Javier Baez have combined for 96 hits and 53 RBI. The Detroit Tigers didn’t announce a starting pitcher at the time this article was published.
Philadelphia Phillies Betting Preview
The Philadelphia Phillies have scored 23 runs in their last 3 games and 4 or more runs in 8 of their last 12 games. The Phillies have won 6 of their last 9 games when scoring 4 or more runs. Nick Castellanos leads the Phillies with 75 hits and 35 RBI, while Bryson Stott and Trea Turner have combined for 128 hits and 40 RBI. Taijuan Walker gets the ball, and he is 4-3 with a 5.65 ERA and 45 strikeouts this season. Walker is 1-0 with a 6.46 ERA and 13 strikeouts in his career against the Tigers.
Taijuan Walker isn't the type of pitcher I'm eager to get behind, but the Phillies are at home and their talented offense is heating up. The Detroit Tigers didn't announce a starting pitcher at the time this article was published, but I'm not sure if it matters given that the offense is coming up short. The Tigers' offense isn't scoring at all. Give me the Phillies, as their offense is hot.
