The Detroit Tigers and Minnesota Twins meet Tuesday in MLB action at Target Field.
The Detroit Tigers need a win after losing seven of their last nine games. The Tigers have scored nine runs in their last three games and three or less runs in six of their last nine games. The Tigers have lost 12 straight games when scoring three or less runs. Jeimer Candelario leads the Tigers with 54 hits and 28 RBI while Victor Reyes and Jonathan Schoop have combined for 96 hits and 37 RBI. Tarik Skubal gets the ball, and he is 1-3 with a 6.17 ERA and 25 strikeouts this season. Skubal is 1-0 with a 2.45 ERA and eight strikeouts in his career against the Twins.
The Minnesota Twins look for a win after splitting their last eight games. The Twins scored 12 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in five of their last 10 games. The Twins have won five straight games when scoring four or more runs. Nelson Cruz leads the Twins with 55 hits and 32 RBI while Jorge Polanco and Eddie Rosario have combined for 99 hits and 55 RBI. The Minnesota Twins didn't list a starting pitcher at the time this article was published.
Will update with trends once they're released.
Tarik Skubal has allowed 16 earned runs and 22 hits through 23.1 major league innings, and he has eight walks to go with 25 strikeouts. This month, Tarik Skubal has allowed nine earned runs and nine hits through 14 innings and has six walks to go with 17 strikeouts. During that span, Tarik Skubal is allowing a .180 batting average and .268 on base percentage. Skubal has been better as of late and gives the Tigers a chance to win this game, but backing the Tigers these days isn't all that appealing. The Minnesota Twins are fighting for playoff positioning and their offense has come around the last couple of weeks.
While we don't know who will be on the mound for the Twins, I like their chances to get the job done at home against a struggling Tigers club.
