The Cleveland Guardians and Detroit TIgers face off on Thursday in an MLB showdown at Comerica Park. The Guardians have won the first two games of this series. 

The Guardians come into this game with a 58-52 record overall and they have won four games in a row. Over the last four games the pitching has given up five runs total, and if they continue to get that type of pitching, they are going to be very hard to beat. Overall the Guardians pitching is giving up 4.22 runs per game. Jose Ramirez has been the top offensive player hitting 21 home runs and driving in 88 RBIs. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Tigers who sit with a 43-69 record overall and have lost three games in a row. Over the last three games, the offense has only managed four runs total. The Tigers offense has been a big issue this season averaging 3.19 runs per game which is 30th in the league. On Wednesday they loaded the bases in the 8th inning with one out, but once again couldn’t get the clutch hitting to secure the win.

On the mound for the Guardians is Zach Plesac and he sits with a 2-10 record and an ERA of 4.49. In his last start against the Houston Astros, he went 4.1 innings giving up seven hits and four runs. 

On the mound for the Tigers will be Garrett Hill and he sits with a 2-3 record and an ERA of 5.12. In his last start against the Tampa Bay Rays, he went 5.2 innings giving up six hits and one run. 

The Guardians are 0-5 in Plesac’s last five road starts. The Tigers are 1-6 in their last seven games against a right-handed starter. The under is 6-0 in the Guardians' last six Thursday games. The under is 3-0-1 in the Tigers last four games against the American League Central. 

The trends might point towards the under, but trends are meant to be broken. Plesac has been a weakness for the Guardians and in his last start he gave up four runs. Hill sits with an ERA of 5.12 and he is also going to have some issues in this game. Look for both pitchers to struggle here, and the over will cash.
