The Detroit Tigers and Los Angeles Angels meet Wednesday in MLB action at Angel Stadium.
The Detroit Tigers need a win after losing 13 of their last 15 games. The Tigers have scored 10 runs in their last three games and three or less runs in 11 of their last 14 games. The Detroit Tigers have lost 22 straight games when scoring three or less runs. Nicholas Castellanos leads the Tigers with 109 hits and 36 RBI while Miguel Cabrera and Niko Goodrum have combined for 180 hits and 75 RBI. Daniel Norris gets the ball, and he is 2-8 with a 4.89 ERA and 90 strikeouts this season. Norris is 0-2 with a 4.32 ERA and 13 strikeouts in his career against the Angels.
The Los Angeles Angels look for a win after splitting their last eight games. The Angels have scored 13 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in seven of their last 10 games. The Los Angeles Angels have won five of their last seven games when scoring four or more runs. David Fletcher leads the Angels with 111 hits and 39 RBI while Mike Trout and Kole Calhoun have combined for 195 hits and 143 RBI. Jose Suarez gets the ball, and he is 2-1 with a 5.35 ERA and 43 strikeouts this season. This will be Suarez’s first career game against the Tigers.
The Tigers are 17-35 in their last 52 during game 3 of a series, 0-4 in Norris' last 4 road starts and 5-21 in Norris' last 26 starts. The Angels are 6-1 in their last 7 Wednesday games, 2-5 in their last 7 during game 3 of a series and 1-6 in their last 7 home games. The Tigers are 18-49 in the last 67 meetings in Los Angeles and 2-5 in the last 7 meetings. The over is 6-1-1 in Suarezs last 8 starts overall. The over is 3-1-1 in Norris' last 5 road starts.
Norris has allowed 26 hits and 14 runs in his last 21 innings, and the Tigers have lost 11 of his last 13 games. Suarez has allowed 19 hits and nine earned runs in his last 16 innings, and he has a 4.73 ERA and .283 allowed batting average at home. There's plenty to hate about this pitching matchup, but at the end of the day it's simply about continuing to fade the Detroit Tigers. Head and shoulders the worst team in baseball in terms of money burned this season and an offense that can't score, I'm still blindly fading the Tigers.
