Detroit Tigers Recap

The Detroit Tigers come into this one looking to bounce back after starting the series on the wrong foot with a 5-0 loss in Thursday’s series opener. The loss was a far from ideal start to the series after losing their set with the Philadelphia Phillies to start the week.

Tigers Struggling To Find Offense

Riley Greene leads the Tigers with 77 hits including 15 home runs and 41 RBIs along with 16 doubles, a .263 batting average and a .358 OBP in addition to a team-high 88 strikeouts this season. Mark Canha has 13 doubles, 6 home runs and 30 RBI and Javier Baez has a team-high 6 stolen bases. Matt Vierling also has 66 hits as well as 5 triples while Wenceel Perez has 5 triples and Kerry Carpenter has 10 doubles and 4 triples of his own with 29 RBIs.

Why the Detroit Tigers will win

  • The road team has won seven of the last eight games between the Tigers and Angels.
  • The Angels have lost 12 of their last 14 home games against AL Central opponents.
  • The Tigers have covered the run line in each of their last four games against the Angels following a road loss.
  • The Angels have failed to cover the run line in five of their last six games against AL Central opponents following a win.

Los Angeles Angels Recap

The Los Angeles Angels will try to keep the ball rolling after their win in Thursday’s series-opening matchup. The win kept the ball rolling for the Angels after their sweep of the Oakland A’s to start the week.

Angels Trying To Build Some Momentum

Taylor Ward has 69 hits along with 15 doubles, 14 home runs and a team-high 41 RBIs. Mike Trout also has 10 home runs along with a pair of triples and 6 stolen bases, but remains out indefinitely with injury while Zach Neto has 19 doubles, 70 strikeouts and 11 stolen bases. Luis Rengifo also has a team-high 72 hits and 20 stolen bases while Jo Adell has 12 home runs, 34 RBIs and 9 stolen bases as well.

Why the Los Angeles Angels will win

  • The Tigers have lost each of their last eight night games against the Angels following a loss.
  • The Angels have won each of their last six night games against the Tigers following a win.
  • The Tigers have failed to cover the run line in each of their last seven games as road favorites against American League opponents.
  • The Angels have covered the run line each of their last five home games against teams that held a losing record.

Detroit Tigers vs LA Angels Prediction

I’m on the Angels here. Kenta Maeda has been fade material on the road all season long with an ERA just under ten, and the Angels, for all of their issues, have actually been playing some decent baseball in the last couple of games and looked pretty good in the opener. Or maybe it was just the Tigers looking brutal. Either way, I think it happens again here and the Angels snag the win. Give me the Halos.
