The Minnesota Twins and Detroit Tigers face off on Tuesday in an American League Central MLB showdown at Comerica Park. This is a doubleheader and a preview for both games. On Monday it was the Tigers that secured the 7-5 victory. 

The Twins come into this game with a 29-20 record, but they have still been a tough team to back because they have had some pretty shocking losses. On paper, the Twins have a strong offense, but they have been middle of the road this season. The pitching has actually been the strength-giving up 3.71 runs per game. Carlos Correa tested positive for COVID and won’t be available. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Detroit Tigers who sit with an 18-29 record overall and they have won two games in a row. The Tigers pitching has been a strength this season, giving up only 3.89 runs per game which is 9th best in baseball. Miguel Cabrera has been the top player this season on offense hitting three home runs and driving in 18 RBIs.

On the mound for the Twins in Game 1 is Devin Smeltzer who sits with a 1-0 record and an ERA of 1.04. In his last start against the Royals, Smeltzer went seven innings, giving up two hits and zero runs. 

On the mound for the Tigers in first game is Rony Garcia who sits with a 0-0 record and an ERA of 3.00. In his last start against the Twins, he went four innings giving up three hits and two runs. 

The Tigers are 1-7 in their last eight Tuesday games. The Tigers are 1-4 in their last five games against a team with a winning percentage above .600. The over is 4-0-1 in the Twins last five road games. 

Devin Smeltzer has been so impressive since being called up from Triple-A, and he is going to lockdown the terrible lockdown of the Tigers. The Tigers are averaging only 2.81 runs per game and they won’t even reach that in this game. The Twins are going to have no issue as they win the first game on the run line.

In the second game there hasn't been any pitchers announced, and not having Correa is a big loss for the Twins. Look for the Twins bats to struggle enough to lose the nightcap. Back the Tigers in Game 2.
