Tigers Bats Heating Up
Heading into Saturday’s game the Tigers had scored 19 runs total in the previous two games and the offense has confidence heading into this game. The Tigers overall are averaging 4.02 runs while their pitching is giving up 4.69 runs per game. The offense is ranked 29th while the pitching is ranked 19th.
Ohtani Out for the Season
The big news surrounding the Angels right now is that Shohei Ohtani has cleared out his locker as he’s been ruled out for the rest of the season with an oblique strain. The Angels decided to try and trade for players this offseason to make the playoffs but instead they are going to miss the playoffs and probably Ohtani this offseason. The Angels are averaging 4.62 runs while their pitching is giving up 5.16 runs per game. On the mound for the Angels will be Reid Detmers who sits with a 3-10 record and an ERA of 4.77.
Shane’s Free Pick
The Angels have nothing left to play for this season, and they are going to really struggle in this game. The Tigers offense has confidence heading into this game and they are going to get to Detmers here. The Tigers bats are going to have no issue running up the score here, and Detroit will get the job done on the money line. This is one of my favorite plays on the board.
