|Date & Time||Sunday July 28, 2019, 4:10 PM (EDT)|
The Line: Detroit Tigers / Seattle Mariners -- Over/Under:
The Detroit Tigers and Seattle Mariners meet Sunday in MLB action at T-Mobile Park.
The Detroit Tigers need a win here to snap a five-game losing streak. The Tigers have scored five runs in their last three games and three or less runs in 10 of their last 14 games. The Detroit Tigers have lost 21 straight games when scoring three or less runs. Nicholas Castellanos leads the Tigers with 108 hits and 36 RBI while Miguel Cabrera and Niko Goodrum have combined for 174 hits and 71 RBI. Matthew Boyd gets the ball, and he is 6-8 with a 4.07 ERA and 168 strikeouts this season. Boyd is 1-0 with a 3.46 ERA and 16 strikeouts in his career against the Mariners.
The Seattle Mariners look for another win to build on their four-game winning streak. The Mariners have scored 21 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in five of their last 10 games. The Seattle Mariners have won 10 of their last 13 games when scoring four or more runs. Domingo Santana leads the Mariners with 107 hits and 65 RBI while Omar Narvaez and Mallex Smith have combined for 172 hits and 68 RBI. Tommy Milone gets the ball, and he is 1-5 with a 4.45 ERA and 56 strikeouts this season. Milone is 4-1 with a 3.43 ERA and 28 strikeouts in his career against the Tigers.
The Tigers are 6-20 in their last 26 during game 4 of a series, 9-23 in Boyds last 32 road starts and 1-8 in Boyds last 9 starts. The Mariners are 4-1 in their last 5 home games, 2-5 in their last 7 during game 4 of a series and 0-4 in their last 4 Sunday games. The Tigers are 5-16 in the last 21 meetings in Seattle and 0-5 in the last 5 meetings. The over is 10-4 in Mariners last 14 Sunday games. The over is 5-1 in Boyds last 6 road starts.
Boyd has allowed 26 hits and 15 runs in his last 24.1 innings, and he has a 4.81 ERA and .253 allowed batting average on the road. Milone has allowed 21 hits and 16 runs in his last 18 innings and the Mariners have lost the last seven games he's pitched, not winning since June 12. Still, the Tigers remain unbackable with the inability to score runs, and they remain easily the worst team in baseball this season in terms of money lost. We've been fading the Tigers for a while and it's continued to pay off. The Seattle Mariners should get the four-game sweep.
