The Boston Red Sox and Detroit Tigers meet Saturday in MLB action at Comerica Park. Let’s preview this game and give out a pick and prediction.
The Boston Red Sox have scored 8 runs in their last 3 games and 4 or more runs in 5 of their 7 games. The Red Sox are 3-2 this season when scoring 4 or more runs. Adam Duvall leads the Red Sox with 11 hits and 12 RBI, while Rafael Devers and Alex Verdugo have combined for 20 hits and 8 RBI. Tanner Houck gets the ball, and he is 1-0 with a 5.40 ERA and 5 strikeouts this season. This will be Houck’s second career game against the Tigers.
The Detroit Tigers have scored 11 runs in their last 3 games and 3 or fewer runs in 5 of their 7 games. The Tigers are 0-5 this season when scoring 3 or fewer runs. Riley Greene leads the Tigers with 8 hits and 1 RBI, while Matt Vierling and Spencer Torkelson have combined for 14 hits and 7 RBI. Joey Wentz gets the ball, and he is 0-1 with a 5.06 ERA and 3 strikeouts this season. This will be Wentz’s first career game against the Red Sox.
The Red Sox are 1-8 in their last 9 road games and 5-2 in their last 7 games following a win. The Tigers are 5-2 in their last 7 home games and 2-8 in their last 10 overall. The over is 6-2 in Red Sox last 8 overall. The over is 4-0 in Tigers last 4 overall. The Red Sox are 8-3 in the last 11 meetings in Detroit and 6-0 in the last 6 meetings.
Neither pitcher looked great in their season opener, so I don't get the warm and fuzzy feeling from either side. However, the Detroit Tigers are an easy fade due to their lack of offense. This was an issue for the Tigers last season, and it's an issue through 7 games. Scoring for the Tigers is like pulling teeth. I have no choice but to side with the Boston Red Sox on the road.
