The Detroit Tigers and Cleveland Guardians face off on Friday in an MLB showdown at Progressive Field. 

The Tigers come into this game with a 13-25 record overall and in the last game against the Tampa Bay Rays, they lost two of their three games. Over the last three games, the Tigers have scored only five runs total and the offense has been a big issue all year for the team. The Tigers are averaging 2.76 runs per game which is 30th in the league. Miguel Cabrera has been the top player for the Tigers hitting three home runs and driving in 14 RBIs. 

On the other side of this matchup is Cleveland who sits with a 16-19 record overall and they have lost three games in a row. On Thursday, the offense only scored two runs, which is a bit shocking because the offense has been a bright spot. The Guardians are averaging 4.66 runs per game which is 7th in the league. Jose Ramirez has been the top player for Cleveland hitting eight home runs and driving in 34 RBOs/

On the mound for the Tigers is Tarik Skubal who sits with a 3-2 record and an ERA of 2.50. Over his last two starts he has gone 13 innings giving up four hits and zero runs.

On the mound for the Guardians is Aaron Civale who sits with a 1-3 record and an ERA of 9.85. In his last start against the Twins, he went 4.2 innings giving up seven hits and six earned runs. 

The Tigers are 1-5 in Skubal’s last five starts with four days of rest. The Tigers are 3-12 in their last 15 road games. The over is 4-0 in Civale’s last four starts during Game 1 of a series. The over is 4-0 in Civale’s last four home starts. 

The Guardians only scored two runs on Thursday and they are going to have issues scoring again in this game. Skubal has been lights out of his last two starts not giving up any runs, and that is going to be the difference in this game. Back the Tigers on the money line.
