The San Francisco Giants are 5-9 this season and they have lost three games in a row. Prior to losing the first two games in this series, San Francisco lost two out of three games against the Dodgers. The San Francisco pitching staff has a 4.37 ERA, a 1.29 WHIP, and a .248 opponent batting average this year. The Giants offense has scored 69 runs with a .247 batting average and a .331 on base percentage. J.D. Davis is batting .341 with four home runs and 13 RBI’s for the Giants. The projected starting pitcher for San Francisco is Logan Webb, who is 0-3 with a 4.76 ERA and a 1.24 WHIP over 17.0 innings pitched this season.

Tigers Preview

The Detroit Tigers are 5-9 this season and they have won three games in a row. Detroit has won the first two games of this series by scores of 7-5 and 7-6. The Detroit pitching staff has a 5.87 ERA, a 1.41 WHIP, and a .263 opponent batting average. The Tigers offense has scored 50 runs with a .208 batting average and a .273 on base percentage this season. Nick Maton is batting .195 with three home runs and nine RBI’s for the Tigers. The projected starting pitcher for Detroit is Matthew Boyd, who is 0-1 with a 4.00 ERA and a 1.56 WHIP over 9.0 innings pitched this season. 


San Francisco is 7-2 in their last 9 game three’s of a series and 9-3 in their last 12 Sunday games. The under is 6-0 in San Francisco’s last 6 Sunday games. Detroit is 5-1 in their last 6 interleague games and 1-4 in their last 5 game three’s of a series. The over is 8-3 in Detroit’s last 11 games. San Francisco is 1-4 in these two teams last 5 head to head meetings.


The Tigers started the season playing very poorly, but they have won three games in a row and will be looking for the sweep in this matchup. Detroit will start Matthew Boyd, who has allowed four earned runs over 9 innings pitched this year. San Francisco is starting Logan Webb, who only allowed one earned run against the Dodgers in his last start. I like the Giants to get the road win here.
