New York is 4-0 in their last 4 interleague games and 0-4 in their last 4 Tuesday games. The over is 15-5 in New York’s last 20 game one’s of a series. Detroit is 5-1 in their last 6 interleague games and 4-1 in their last 5 Tuesday games. The under is 9-3-1 in Detroit’s last 13 games. New York is 3-7 in these two teams last 10 head to head meetings.


Both of these teams come into this series struggling, but New York has the much better lineup in this matchup. Detroit is one of the worst hitting teams in the MLB and they have scored the least amount of runs in baseball. Detroit is starting Michael Lorenzen, who has allowed 11 earned runs over 14.0 innings pitched this year. New York is starting Joey Lucchesi, who has allowed three earned runs over 12.1 innings of work. I am actually going to take the Tigers in this game, as the Mets had a doubleheader on Monday and had to travel to Detroit as well.
