The Detroit Tigers are 7-9 this season and they have won five games in a row. Detroit won both games of the doubleheader on Tuesday by scores of 4-3 and 1-0. The Detroit pitching staff has a 5.33 ERA, a 1.33 WHIP, and a .255 opponent batting average.

Cleveland is 5-1 in their last 6 Wednesday games and 19-7 in their last 26 game three’s of a series. The over is 5-2 in Cleveland’s last 7 game three’s of a series. Detroit is 5-0 in their last 5 games and 10-1 in their last 11 games against the AL Central. The over is 8-3 in Detroit’s last 11 games. The under is 6-2-1 in these two teams last 9 head to head meetings.


Detroit has turned things around and comes into this game on a five game winning streak. The Tigers will look to complete the series sweep with Spencer Turnbull on the mound, who pitched very well in his last start against Toronto. The Guardians will turn to Cal Quantrill, who has allowed at least three earned runs in each start this year. The Tigers are playing well, and if Turnbull can pitch like he did in his last start, I like Detroit to get the win.
