Detroit Tigers vs LA Angels Prediction 

Detroit comes into this series in a huge offensive funk, as they have struggled to score more than two runs over the last week. On the bright side for Detroit, they will have Flaherty on the mound, who has been fantastic over his last four starts. Los Angeles is just 15-25 at home, but they have played better baseball over the last 11 games. I don’t love the pitching situation for the Angels and I think it’s a great spot for Detroit to put some runs up. My Detroit Tigers vs LA Angels prediction is for the Tigers to win.
