The Detroit pitching staff has a 4.06 ERA, a 1.29 WHIP, and a .247 opponent batting average.

Kansas City is 2-5 in their last 7 game one’s of a series and 1-6 in their last 7 Friday games. The over is 6-1 in Kansas City’s last 7 Friday games. Detroit is 6-20 in their last 26 game one’s of a series and 15-39 in their last 54 Friday games. The under is 3-1-1 in Detroit’s last 5 Friday games. The under is 27-10-1 in these two teams last 38 head to head meetings.
These two teams are the bottom two teams in the AL Central and have two of the three worst records in the American League. Both teams come into this series struggling and Detroit has the worst offense in all of baseball. This pitching matchup leaves a lot to be desired as both pitchers have had their issues this season. I like Detroit in this matchup, as Hutchison has been decent in recent starts.
