Shane’s Free Pick
The A’s are going to pick up a series win here. Rodriguez in his last start gave up five runs and he’s going to really struggle again here. The Tigers bats have also really struggled heading into this game and they will struggle to get anything going against Spears here. The Tigers will finish with only one or two runs total here and the Athletics are going to get the job done. Back the A’s on the money line.
