Detroit Tigers vs Minnesota Twins Prediction

I’ll stay with the Tigers. Flaherty does need a better outcome than his last start, however. On June 27 he gave up five earned on seven hits and a walk during a loss to the Angels. Prior to that however, Flaherty was 2-0 with 10.2 innings and just one earned on eight hits and three walks over his previous two starts.

On Tuesday the Tigers had one big inning but otherwise faltered offensively on five team hits. The bullpen wasn’t great either (2.0 innings; two earned); it was an all-around rough day. Detroit needs a good bounce-back in game two.
