The Boston Red Sox will play the Detroit Tigers at Comerica Park on Tuesday afternoon.

The Detroit Tigers defeated the Boston Red Sox in Game 1 of the series on Monday by a score of 3-1. This game was tied in the bottom of the eighth inning when Javier Baez hit a two run homer to take the lead. Detroit was able to close out in the ninth inning with a save from their closer, Soto. Detroit doubled up the Red Sox in hits, by a total of 8-4. Both starting pitchers were strong in this game, but Matt Manning gave the Tigers six innings and only one run.

The Detroit Tigers are 2-2 on the season after the aforementioned win against the Red Sox and a 2-1 series loss to the White Sox. The Tigers are projected to start Tyler Alexander on Tuesday afternoon, while they wait for Michael Pineda to join the team. The Tigers offense has been slow to start the season, only scoring 8 total runs, with a .185 average. The Tigers pitching staff has a 6.00 ERA, 1.33 WHIP, and a .275 opponent batting average. The bright spot for the Tigers offense has been newly acquired outfielder, Austin Meadows, who is 6-13 with three walks and five runs on the season.

The Boston Red Sox are 1-3 this season after losing their opening game of the series to Detroit and going 1-2 against the Yankees to start the season. Boston is projected to start Rich Hill on Tuesday, in his first action of the season. The Red Sox offense has scored 11 runs on the season with a .186 batting average and .274 on base percentage. The Boston pitching staff has a 3.67 ERA, 1.30 WHIP and a .235 opponent batting average. Alex Verdugo has led the Red Sox offense going 5-14 with two walks and a homerun on the season.

Boston is 6-2 in their last 8 games as a favorite and 1-5 in their last 6 games. The over is 9-3 in Boston’s last 12 games. Detroit is 3-8 in their last 11 games and 1-4 in their last 5 home games. The under is 4-0 in Detroit’s last 4 Tuesday games. Boston is 8-3 in these two teams last 11 head to head meetings.

Detroit has really struggled offensively to start the season, but has managed to scratch out two wins. Boston has also struggled, but will go up against a very average pitcher that they should be able to get to. I am taking the over in this game based on the pitching matchup not being very strong and the bats for both teams have to wake up at some point.
