The Detroit Tigers and the Toronto Blue Jays will match up in MLB activity on Sunday.

The two teams split the first pair of games in this set, then on Saturday, the Jays took a 3-0 victory.

In the loss Saturday, Detroit’s Miguel Cabrera managed a pair of hits, while Josh Harrison went 1-for-3 with a walk. Nick Castellanos had a mediocre day as well with a 1-for-4 line.

For Sunday’s game, the Tigers are rolling with lefty Matt Moore. In his 102.0 innings in 2018, Moore came up with a 6.79 ERA, 86 strikeout sand a 3-8 record overall.

As for the Jays, their lead player in the Saturday game was Justin Smoak, who bagged a couple of RBI. Brandon Drury had a run and a hit, while Danny Jansen went 1-for-4.

In the Sunday game, the Jays will send out Trent Thornton for the start. This will be Thornton’s Major-League debut, plugging the hole while Toronto works out some injury situations.

The Tigers are 29-62 in the last 91 overall and 3-8 in the last 11 Sunday games Detroit is 6-21 in their last 27 in game four of a series and 1-4 in the last five on turf.

Meanwhile, the Jays are 14-38 in their last 52 versus a left-handed starter and 1-5 in the last six in game four of a series. Toronto is 1-6 in the last seven home games versus a left-handed starter and the under is 7-0 in their last seven home games.

This has been a weird series so far. In all three games, the loser has failed to find the scoreboard, and aside from the Jays’ six runs on Friday there have only been five other scores in this set.

Still, with the Jays at home and hitting better (usually), and even with the rookie on the hill I have to go with Toronto in the finale win.
