The Oakland Athletics and Detroit Tigers face off on Monday in an MLB showdown at Comerica Park. 

The Oakland Athletics come into this game with a 10-18 record overall and they have lost nine games in a row. The A’s only gave up seven runs total to the Minnesota Twins in the last series but the bats were so ice cold they couldn’t even secure one win. The A’s are averaging only 3.43 runs per game, and they need to find a way to get the bats going here. Sean Murphy has been the top player for the A’s hitting four home runs and driving in 18 RBIs. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Detroit Tigers who sit with an 8-19 record overall and they have lost five games in a row. In the last four games against the Houston Astros, the Tigers only scored six runs total. The offense overall this season has been ranked 30th in baseball, and they need to do a better job of putting together big innings.

Getting the start for the A’s will be Paul Blackburn who sits with a 3-0 record and a 2.22 ERA. In his last start against the Rays, he went 4.1 innings giving up six hits and three earned runs. 

On the mound for the Tigers will be Michael Pineda who sits with a 1-1 record and an ERA of 3.77. In his last start against the Pirates, he went 4.1 innings giving up four hits and two runs. 

The A’s are 0-8 in their last eight games as an underdog. The A’s are 4-1 in Blackburn’s last five road starts. The under is 4-0 in the Tigers' last four games on grass. The under is 3-0-2 in the A’s last five games against a right-handed starter. 

There are two plays from this game that are strong. The A’s have won four of the last five games on the road started by Blackburn. Against the Tigers bats that struggled all weekend, the underdogs will get the job done. I don’t expect the A’s to run up the score though. The A’s scored three runs on Sunday, and that’s where they will finish in this game. Back the under.
