The Detroit Tigers and Miami Marlins face off on Saturday in an MLB showdown at loanDepot Park. On Saturday it was the Marlins that were able to secure the 6-5 victory. 

Tigers offense continues to struggle

The Tigers played a doubleheader against the Angels on Thursday and the offense only managed four runs total. In the first game the Tigers offense only managed a hit, and the offense has been an issue all season. The Tigers are averaging 3.89 runs while their pitching is giving up 4.84 runs per game. The offense is ranked 28th in the league while the pitching is ranked 21st. Miguel Cabrera isn’t going out the way he would like. On the season he has hit one home run and driven in 15 RBIs. 

Johnny Cueto Impresses 

On the mound for the Marlins will be Johnny Cueto who sits with an 0-1 record and an ERA of 4.50. In his last start against the Colorado Rockies he went six innings giving up two hits and one run. The Marlins have been strong this season, and if Cueto can pitch well, that is going to be a big boost for the Marlins in the second half. The Marlins are averaging 4.09 runs while their pitching is giving up 4.28 runs per game. The offense is ranked 27th in the league while the pitching is ranked 11th. There hasn’t been enough attention for what Jorge Soler has been able to do the season. Soler has hit 24 home runs and driven in 54 RBIs. 

Shane’s Free Pick

The Tigers offense has been a major issue all season, and they are going to have some major issues again here. Cueto in his last start looked quite impressive, and the Tigers offense has had major issues scoring all season. The Tigers are going to only score a run or two total. The Marlins offense has been a little inconsistent, but they will score three or four runs here, and that will be enough for them to get the job done. Back the Marlins on the money line to cash here.
