The Detroit Tigers are 15-17 this season and they have won five games in a row. Detroit has won the first two games in this series by scores of 5-4 and 6-5. The Detroit pitching staff has a 4.50 ERA, a 1.22 WHIP, and a .239 opponent batting average this year. The Tigers offense has scored 115 runs with a .229 batting average and a .294 on base percentage. Javier Baez is batting .259 with three home runs and 15 RBI’s for the Tigers. The projected starting pitcher for Detroit is Alex Faedo, who is making his first start of the season.
The St. Louis Cardinals are 10-24 this season and they have lost eight games in a row. Prior to losing the first two games in this series, St. Louis lost all three games in their series with the Angels. The St. Louis pitching staff has a 4.70 ERA, a 1.47 WHIP, and a .275 opponent batting average. The Cardinals offense has scored 144 runs with a .259 batting average and a .329 on base percentage this season. Nolan Gorman is batting .263 with seven home runs and 23 RBI’s for the Cardinals. The projected starting pitcher for St. Louis is Steven Matz, who is 0-4 with a 6.39 ERA and a 1.71 WHIP over 31.0 innings pitched this year.
Detroit is 5-0 in their last 5 games and 2-8 in their last 10 game three’s of a series. The under is 5-1-1 in Detroit’s last 7 game three’s of a series. St. Louis is 0-5 in their last 5 home games and 8-23 in their last 31 games. The over is 8-1-1 in St. Louis’ last 10 home games. Detroit is 6-1 in these two teams last 7 head to head meetings.
The Cardinals come into this game on an eight game losing streak and have played very poorly to start the season. Detroit has won five games in a row and is in second place in the AL Central. Detroit is starting Alex Faedo, who is making his first appearance of the year. The Cardinals will have Steven Matz on the mound, who has had some major issues this season. Matz has allowed at least four earned runs in three of his last five starts and has an ERA over six. Even with Matz on the mound, I like St. Louis to avoid the sweep in this matchup and I am taking them to win by at least two runs.
