The Texas Rangers and Detroit Tigers face off on Thursday in an MLB showdown at Comerica Park. Both of these teams have struggled to start the season.

The pitching gave up 13 runs to the Chicago White Sox. The pitching wasn’t great on Wednesday, but all season it’s been the offense that has been an issue.

On the mound for the Rangers is Martin Perez who sits with a 4-2 record and an ERA of 2.18. Perez has had a nice season, but in his last start he struggled going five innings giving up 12 hits and seven earned runs. 

On the mound for the Tigers is Beau Brieske who sits with a 1-5 record and an ERA of 4.34. In his last start against the Toronto Blue Jays, he went 5.2 innings giving up seven hits and zero runs. 

The Tigers are 0-4 in their last four home games. The under is 5-0 in the Rangers last five Thursday games. The under is 2-0-2 in the Tigers last four Thursday games. The over is 7-1-1 in the Rangers last nine road games. 

Perez is coming off a terrible start, but facing the Tigers is going to be exactly what he needs to get some confidence back. The Tigers offense has been awful all season averaging 2.71 runs per game and they are going to really struggle again in this game. Look for Perez to lockdown the Tigers offense, and the Rangers will secure the victory.
