The Baltimore Orioles and Detroit Tigers face off on Saturday in an MLB showdown at Comerica Park. On Friday the Tigers beat the Orioles 4-2. The Orioles loaded the bases in the 9th inning but couldn’t get a winning hit.
The Orioles currently sit with a 14-19 record overall but whenever you count this team out, it seems they start to find success. The Orioles had won four of their last five games before losing on Friday night. Over the last two games, the Orioles have scored only five runs total though, and they need the offense to be better in this game.
On the other side of this matchup is the Detroit Tigers who sit with a 10-23 record overall and all season their biggest issue has been with the offense. The Tigers are averaging only 2.78 runs per game which is 30th in the league. Javier Baez played well to start the season, but he has been slumping the last couple of weeks and there is some clear frustration with him.
On the mound for the Orioles will be Bruce Zimmerman who sits with a 2-1 record and an ERA of 2.67. In his last start against the Kansas City Royals, he went six innings giving up five hits and two runs.
On the mound for the Tigers will be Michael Pineda who sits with a 1-2 record and an ERA of 3.43. In his last start against the A’s, he went 6.2 innings giving up six hits and two runs.
The Orioles are 4-1 in their last five games on grass. The Orioles are 1-7 in Zimmerman’s last eight road starts. The under is 4-0 in Pineda’s last four starts on grass. The under is 7-1-2 in the Tigers last 10 games played on Saturday.
The better pitcher in this game is Zimmerman who currently sits with an ERA of 2.67. The Tigers bats have been cold all season, and even on Friday they only scored four runs. Look for the Tigers bats to struggle, and that will be the difference as the Orioles secure the victory here.
