The Milwaukee Brewers and Detroit Tigers meet Tuesday in MLB action at Comerica Park.
The Milwaukee Brewers look for a win after splitting their last 14 games. The Brewers have scored 11 runs in their last three games and three or less runs in seven of their last 12 games. The Brewers have lost six straight games when scoring three or less runs. Keston Hiura leads the Brewers with 35 hits and 25 RBI while Christian Yelich and Orlando Arcia have combined for 52 hits and 30 RBI. Adrian Houser gets the ball, and he is 1-3 with a 4.97 ERA and 26 strikeouts this season. This will be Houser’s second career game against the Tigers.
The Detroit Tigers need a win after losing five of their last six games. The Tigers have scored 15 runs in their last three games and three or less runs in five of their last eight games. The Tigers have lost four straight games when scoring three or less runs. Jonathan Schoop leads the Tigers with 43 hits and 22 RBI while Jeimer Candelario and Victor Reyes have combined for 82 hits and 31 RBI. Spencer Turnbull gets the ball, and he is 3-2 with a 3.89 ERA and 31 strikeouts this season. Turnbull is 0-1 with a 8.38 ERA and 12 strikeouts in his career against the Brewers.
The Brewers are 2-5 in their last 7 Tuesday games, 4-10 in their last 14 during game 1 of a series and 1-5 in their last 6 games following an off day. The Tigers are 6-2 in their last 8 interleague games, 6-2 in their last 8 vs. National League Central and 47-114 in their last 161 overall. The under is 2-0-2 in Brewers last 4 road games. The over is 4-1 in Tigers last 5 interleague games. The Brewers are 4-1 in the last 5 meetings.
Adrian Houser has allowed 20 runs in his last 33 innings while Spencer Turnbull has allowed 12 runs and 19 hits in his last 23.2 innings. I'm not thrilled about this pitching matchup, but the Brewers are a team that's starting to show progress and they're certainly playing better than the Detroit Tigers, a club that has little to no pitching this season. I'll side with the Brewers and the cheap price, but there's probably better options on Tuesday's stacked MLB card.
