The Cleveland Guardians and Detroit Tigers face off on Sunday in an MLB showdown at Comerica Park. The two teams have split the first two games of this series. 

The Tigers come into this game with a 16-29 record overall and the biggest issue for this team all season has been the offense. Over the last two games, the Tigers have scored only five runs total. Overall the Tigers are averaging 2.73 runs per game which is 30th in baseball. Miguel Cabrera has been the top player hitting three home runs and driving in 18 RBIs. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Guardians who sit with a 19-23 record overall and on Saturday it was the offense again that was the difference putting up eight runs. Overall this season, Cleveland is averaging 4.57 runs per game which is 9th best in baseball. Jose Ramirez has been the top player this year hitting 12 home runs and driving in 48 RBIs. Josh Naylor has also had a big season hitting six home runs and driving in 25 RBIs.

On the mound for the Guardians is Triston McKenzie who sits with a 3-3 record and an ERA of 2.70. 

On the mound for the Tigers is Elvin Rodriguez who sits with a 0-0 record and an ERA near ten. Rodriguez is young and there have been some growing pains early. 

The Tigers are 4-1 in their last five home games. The Guardians are 1-7 in their last eight games against a right-handed starter. The under is 4-0 in the Guardians last four games against a right-handed starter. The under is 6-1 in McKenzie’s last seven starts against the American League Central. 

Triston McKenzie is the much better pitcher in this game, and the Guardians have the better offense. The Tigers only scored one run on Saturday, and they are going to have issues getting above that number in this game. Look for a 5-1 or 6-1 type of game, and Cleveland will win this game on the run line. This is one of the top plays on the board.
