The Oakland Athletics and Detroit Tigers face off on Thursday in an MLB showdown at Comerica Park. The Athetlics have won three of the four games so far during this series. On Wednesday, the A’s offense was strong scoring nine runs and that was enough to secure the victory. 

Coming into this season many believed that the A’s would be the worst team in the MLB, and although they haven’t had a good start to the season they still look like a team that can win many series this summer. Over the last two games the A’s have only given up one run total, and they are going to need some good pitching in this game. Sean Murphy has been the top offensive player hitting four home runs and driving in 17 RBIs. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Detroit Tigers who sit with a 9-22 record and all season the offense has been an issue for this team. The Tigers are averaging only 2.74 runs per game which is 30th in the league. The pitching actually hasn’t been all that bad season, but they haven’t been good enough with how bad the offense has been.

On the mound for the A’s will be James Kapriellan who sits with an 0-2 record and an ERA of 5.87. In his last start against the Twins he went 5.2 innings giving up three hits and one run. 

On the mound for the Tigers is Beau Brieske who sits with a 0-2 record and an ERA of 4.20. In his last start against the Astros he went five innings giving up three hits. 

The A’s are 10-2 in their last 12 games played on Thursday. The Tigers are 0-5 in their last 5 games vs. a starter with a WHIP greater than 1.30. The under is 5-0-2 in the A’s last seven games against a right-handed starter. 

The Tigers have only scored one run total over the last two games, and it doesn’t seem to matter who is pitching, they have struggled to score runs. Look for the the Tigers bats to be ice cold in this game, and that will be the difference as the A’s get the job done. Back the Athletics on the money line.
