Detroit is 4-1 in their last 5 Saturday games and 3-7 in their last 10 game three’s of a series. The over is 6-1-1 in Detroit’s last 8 game three’s of a series. Cleveland is 1-6 in their last 7 Saturday games and 1-6 in their last 7 game three’s of a series. The under is 4-1 in Cleveland’s last 5 games. The under is 6-2 in these two teams last 8 head to head meetings in Cleveland.
Detroit was able to score some runs on Friday night, which is a rare occasion for them this season, but was unable to hold onto the lead. Detroit has now lost seven of their last eight games, while Cleveland is just 2.5 games behind first place in the AL Central. As crazy as it seems, I like Detroit in this matchup. Pineda has been solid all season and I think he will give them a good shot to win the game.
