Texas Rangers vs Detroit Tigers Prediction

I’m on the Tigers here. I just have a hard time getting there with Texas and while this team showed a pulse over the last week, they went right back to old habits with the loss on Monday. I’m seeing it could be Dane Dunning here for Texas, and if it is, that’s even more reason for me to take Detroit, who have hit righties fairly well over the last month and Dunning’s been wildly inconsistent in brief appearances this season. Flaherty’s pitched much better on the road this season as it is, and I think Detroit gets it done in this one for another W. Give me the Tigers here.
