Tigers Have Been Impressive This Season

The Tigers have been impressive so far this season and coming into this game with an 18-13 record overall. The Tigers faced off against the St. Louis Cardinals on Wednesday and they were able to secure the 4-1 victory. Matt Vierling had a strong game hitting one home run and driving in three RBIs.

The Tigers on the season is averaging 4.09 runs while their pitching is giving up 3.77 runs per game. The offense is ranked 19th in the league while the defense is ranked 7th. The Tigers will face the Guardians after this series.

Olson Needs Another Strong Start

Getting the start for the Tigers will be Reese Olson who sits with an 0-4 record and an ERA of 3.18. In his last start against the Kansas City Royals he went seven innings giving up three hits and one run. In this game, Olson is going to have another good start. 

Yankees Have Lost Three of Four

The Yankees have lost three of four and the Baltimore Orioles weren’t kind to them. In the last game on Thursday the Yankees only scored two runs and that led to the five run defeat. Gleyber Torres did hit a solo home run. The Yankees are averaging 4.75 runs while their pitching is giving up 3.45 runs per game. The offense has been ranked 12th in the league while the pitching is ranked 3rd. They have a run differential of 1.28 which is 6th in the league. The offense might get the credit but the pitching has been good. Juan Soto has hit eight home runs and driven in 25 RBis so far this season.

Marcus Storman is going to get the job for the Yankees and he comes into this game with a 2-1 record and an ERA of 3.39.

Detroit Tigers vs New York Yankees Prediction

The Yankees offense has been solid this season but they are going to really struggle again in this game. Reese Olson was good in his last start giving up only one run and three hits in the last game. I don’t trust the Tigers offense and that is going to be the difference here as this game is going to be lower scoring. Both offenses are going to struggle here, and this game is going to stay under the total.
