|Date & Time||Sunday June 3, 2018, 1:10 PM (EDT)|
The Line: Detroit Tigers -109 / Toronto Blue Jays -101 --- Over/Under: 9
The Toronto Blue Jays and Detroit Tigers meet Sunday in MLB action at Comerica Park.
The Toronto Blue Jays could use a feel good win here in order to snap a five-game losing streak. The Blue Jays have allowed 18 runs in their last three games and five or more runs in eight of their last 10 games. The Toronto Blue Jays have lost 18 of their last 19 games when allowing more than three runs. Offensively, Kevin Pillar leads the Blue Jays with 56 hits and 21 RBI while Yangervis Solarte and Justin Smoak have combined for 101 hits and 65 RBI. Aaron Sanchez gets the ball, and he is 2-5 with a 4.77 ERA and 46 strikeouts this season. Sanchez is 1-0 with a 1.50 ERA and 23 strikeouts in his career against the Tigers.
The Detroit Tigers look to stay hot after winning eight of their last 10 games. The Tigers have scored 18 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in eight of their last 10 games. The Detroit Tigers have won six straight games when scoring more than two runs. Nicholas Castellanos leads the Tigers with 76 hits and 32 RBI while Jose Iglesias and Jeimer Candelario have combined for 98 hits and 43 RBI. Michael Fulmer gets the ball, and he is 2-4 with a 4.60 ERA and 52 strikeouts this season. Fulmer is 2-0 with a 0.64 ERA and eight strikeouts in his career against the Blue Jays.
The Blue Jays are 7-3 in their last 10 Sunday games, 1-5 in their last 6 during game 3 of a series and 1-4 in Sanchezs last 5 starts. The Tigers are 4-11 in their last 15 Sunday games, 5-1 in their last 6 home games and 1-4 in Fulmers last 5 starts. The Blue Jays are 2-5 in the last 7 meetings in Detroit and the over is 11-4-1 in the last 16 meetings in Detroit.
I'm honestly not trying to get behind either one of these pitchers, as they both get hit hard and have allowed a combined 12 runs in their last 8.1 innings. However, the Detroit Tigers are one of the hotter teams in the league right now and are a club you can still get at a cheap price. Who knew the Tigers would be two games out of a .500 record in the month of June? The Toronto Blue Jays are a mess have lost 18 of their last 19 games when allowing more than three runs. Yikes. Give me the Tigers.
