The MIlwaukee Brewers and Detroit Tigers face off on Wednesday in an interleague showdown at Comerica Park. These two teams have faced three times so far this year with the Tigers winning two of the games.
Who would have thought the Tigers would be having this much access right now. This is a Tigers team that is currently in the playoff race and in the first game of this series the offense was good putting up eight runs. The best offensive player on Tigers on Tuesday was Jeimer Candelario who had two hits, scored two runs, and drove in four. In this game the Tigers need the offense to be good, because Matthew Boyd is going to need run support.
On the other side of this matchup is the Milwaukee Brewers who come into this game having lost three games in a row. Over the last three games the Brewers have scored only seven runs total and that type of offense isn’t going to be enough to get the job done. Keston Hiura comes into this game having hit 11 home runs and driven 25 RBI’s. In this game if the Brewers fall behind early they are going to have issues coming away with a win.
On the mound for the Brewers will be Corbin Burnes who comes into this game with a 2-0 record and a low ERA of 2.35.
On the mound for the Tigers will be Matthew Boyd who comes into this game with a 1-5 record and an ERA of 6.64.
The Brewers are 13-3 in their last 16 games. The Tigers are 6-2 in their last eight interleague games.The Tigers are 22-63 in their last 85 home games. The under is 8-3-1 in the Tigers last 12 games played on Wednesday.
Boyd has struggled and there is no reason to believe it’s going to be any different in this game. Look for the Brewers to run up the score in this game and that will lead to them winning this game on the run line. In terms of the total it's a lean to the over.
