The Tigers will be trying to salvage a win in Cleveland before heading to Houston on Monday. With two pitchers in the backend of their respective rotations going, this is anyone’s game. The Tigers have been struggling from the plate, but I like them to bounce back here and steal one. Give me Detroit to win.
