Rangers vs Tigers Prediction

I’ll try the Tigers in this one. Mize had a little bit of trouble in his first start this year, notching three earned in 4.1 innings of work. In his latest outing however, Mize was better on 5.0 innings with two earned, five hits and one walk. A quality start in Tuesday’s matchup should set the Tigers up well for a potential win.

On Monday Detroit couldn’t get anything going on five team hits (two of which belonged to Mark Canha). The good news is that the pitching staff held up well, though. The Tigers have one run or fewer in two of the last three games, so the bats certainly have to get moving on Tuesday.
