The Detroit Tigers will play the Pittsburgh Pirates in Game 2 of their series at PNC Park on Wednesday afternoon.
The Detroit Tigers are 22-33 this season and have lost three of their last four games. Detroit is coming off of a Game 1 win in this series by a score of 5-3 on Tuesday night. The Detroit pitching staff has a 3.66 ERA, a 1.18 WHIP, and a .227 opponent batting average this season. The Tigers offense has scored 155 runs with a .220 batting average and a .279 on base percentage. Miguel Cabrera is batting .298 with three home runs and 19 RBI’s for the Tigers this season. The projected starter for Detroit is Alex Faedo is batting 1-2 with a 3.09 ERA and a 1.31 WHIP over 32 innings pitched this season.
The Pittsburgh Pirates are 24-29 this season and have won five of their last seven games. Prior to the Game 1 loss, Pittsburgh won two out of three games against Arizona. The Pittsburgh pitching staff has a 4.36 ERA, a 1.37 WHIP, and a .245 opponent batting average. The Pirates offense has scored 188 runs with a .226 batting average and a .298 on base percentage this year. Bryan Reynolds is batting .221 with eight home runs and 14 RBI’s for the Pirates this season. The projected starter for Pittsburgh is Mitch Keller, who is 2-5 with a 5.77 ERA and a 1.56 WHIP over 43.2 innings pitched this season.
Detroit is 5-1 in their last 6 games against the NL Central and 3-7 in their last 10 Wednesday games. The under is 10-3 in Detroit’s last 13 interleague games. Pittsburgh is 5-2 in their last 7 games and 14-33 in their last 47 interleague games. The under is 5-0-1 in Pittsburgh’s last 6 game two’s of a series. The over is 21-11-1 in these two teams last 33 head to head meetings.
The Tigers and Pirates will take the field again about 12 hours after Game 1 ended after a lengthy rain delay on Tuesday night. For the Tigers, Faedo has allowed exactly two runs in each of his last three starts. For the Pirates, Keller has allowed four runs total in his last 11 innings pitched. I like the over in this game as I think Faedo has been lucky to get out of some jams this year, while Keller has had some struggles this season as well.
