Click Here for the Latest Odds

The Detroit Tigers will play the Cleveland Guardians in Game 4 of their series at Progressive Field on Wednesday night.

The Detroit Tigers are 45-74 this season and have won two games in a row. Detroit has won Games 2 and 3 of this series by scores of 7-5 and 4-3. The Detroit pitching staff has a 4.02 ERA, a 1.29 WHIP, and a .247 opponent batting average this season. The Tigers offense has scored 380 runs with a .227 batting average and a .282 on base percentage. Javier Baez is batting .227 with 11 home runs and 45 RBI’s for the Tigers this season. The projected starter for Detroit is Daniel Norris, who is 0-4 with a 5.97 ERA and a 1.44 WHIP over 34.2 innings pitched this season.

The Cleveland Guardians are 62-55 this season and have lost three of their last five games. Cleveland won Game 1 of this series by a score of 4-1 on Monday afternoon. The Cleveland pitching staff has a 3.79 ERA, a 1.21 WHIP, and a .239 opponent batting average. The Guardians offense has scored 508 runs with a .252 batting average and a .314 on base percentage this year. Jose Ramirez is batting .281 with 22 home runs and 96 RBI’s for the Guardians this season. The projected starter for Cleveland is Cal Quantrill, who is 9-5 with a 3.67 ERA and a 1.22 WHIP over 130 innings pitched this season.

Detroit is 8-24 in their last 32 games on grass and 18-41 in their last 59 road games. The under is 3-0-1 in Detroit’s last 4 Wednesday games. Cleveland is 8-3 in their last 11 games and 8-2 in their last 10 Wednesday games. The over is 5-2-1 in Cleveland’s last 8 Wednesday games. Detroit is 27-70 in these two teams last 97 head to head meetings.

Detroit has surprised the Guardians by taking two games in this series already and will look to deal another massive loss to Cleveland on Wednesday. Daniel Norris pitched well in his first appearance after being acquired by Detroit earlier this season, but can he build on that performance? Cal Quantrill has pitched very well for Cleveland in his last two outings and I like him to lead the Guardians to a two run win.

The pick in this article is the opinion of the writer, not a PickDawgz site consensus.
