The Detroit Tigers will play the Minnesota Twins in Game 2 of their series at Target Field on Wednesday night.
The Detroit Tigers are 6-10 this season and have lost three games in a row. Detroit was leading 4-3 in Game 1, but blew the win in the bottom of the 9th with two errors on the same play. The Detroit pitching staff has a 3.22 ERA, a 1.15 WHIP, and a .226 opponent batting average this season. The Tigers offense has scored 57 runs with a .232 batting average and a .316 on base percentage. Austin Meadows is batting .327 with nine RBI’s this season for the Tigers. The projected starter for Detroit is Michael Pineda, who is 1-0 this season with a 0.00 ERA and a 0.60 WHIP over 5 innings pitched.
The Minnesota Twins are 9-8 this season and have won five games in a row. Prior to Minnesota’s wild Game 1 win, they swept the White Sox in three games. The Minnesota pitching staff has a 3.42 ERA, a 1.21 WHIP, and a .226 opponent batting average. The Twins offense has scored 63 runs with a .215 batting average and a .308 on base percentage this season. Byron Buxton is batting .317 with six home runs and 11 RBI’s for the Twins this season. The projected starter for Minnesota is Joe Ryan, who is 2-1 with a 1.69 ERA and a 0.88 WHIP over 16 innings pitched.
Detroit is 16-7 in their last 23 Wednesday games and 2-6 in their last 8 games. The under is 19-6-2 in Detroit’s last 27 road games. Minnesota is 5-0 in their last 5 games and 6-2 in their last 8 Wednesday games. The under is 5-2 in Minnesota’s last 7 Wednesday games. Detroit is 18-38 in these two teams last 56 head to head meetings.
Pineda looked good in his first outing this season, but we have only seen a small sample size with him. Joe Ryan has been solid for Minnesota and will face a Detroit team that has not been very sharp on offense. Even with Detroit’s struggles, I think they have some value here. They should have won on Tuesday and I think they will get the job done on Wednesday.
