The Detroit Tigers and the Milwaukee Brewers will be finishing out the MLB regular season up at Miller Park on Sunday. 

The Brewers banged out a 6-5 victory on Friday in the opener of this set, then in Saturday’s game two, Milwaukee did it again 6-5 after being down three runs early. 

For the Sunday game, the Tigers will be going with RHP Spencer Turnbull. Across his 11.0 innings and 0-1 mark this year, Turnbull has a 5.73 ERA with eight Ks and two walks. 

Nick Castellanos leads the Tigers bats this year, coming into the weekend on 182 hits, 86 runs, 22 homers and 88 RBI. On Saturday, Castellanos hit a solo homer. 

Over on the Brewers’ side, they haven’t announced their starter yet but we’ll update when they do. 

Milwaukee’s lead hitter is Christian Yelich, who came into the weekend on 182 hits, 114 runs, 34 homers and 106 RBI. On Saturday, Yelich ripped two more home runs. 

The Tigers are 3-7 in their last 10 Sunday games and the over is 5-0 in their last five in game three of a series. Detroit is 28-60 in their last 88 overall and 23-54 in their last 77 road games. 

Meanwhile, the Brewers are 10-2 in their last 12 in game three of a series and 5-1 in their last six Sunday games. The over is 13-3 in their last 16 Sunday games and the under is 4-1 in their last five in game three of a series. 

Turnbull hasn’t posted a whole lot of innings to examine, but there’s some promise mixed in there. In his first outing (relief), Turnbull put up a clean inning with a K, but then coughed up six earned in 4.0 versus the Twins his next time up. He did get revenge in Minnesota in his most recent start, posting six innings of one-run ball with six hits and five Ks. Still, I don’t have a whole lot of faith in Turnbull holding back this Brewers lineup as they try to work their way to a division win so I’m going Milwaukee.
