Cleveland took it to the Tigers on Thursday behind a strong outing from Shane Bieber to snap the skid and I’m thinking the Tribe dish out another beatdown loss to Detroit here. Michael Fulmer clearly hasn’t looked right since coming back from Tommy John surgery as he’s been getting torched left and right by the opposition and has an ERA over nine this season. Granted, Fulmer’s not going full games but he’s allowed nine runs in five innings across his last two starts and in games against Cleveland, who tend to play tight defensively. This could be a long night for Detroit, especially with a cool head like Zach Plesac on the other side. Plesac’s coming off of his worst start of the year, allowing five runs in seven innings last tie up, but prior to that, Plesac allowed one run or less in four of his prior five starts. I’ll side with Cleveland on the run line as my premium pick for this game in a game that could look like Thursday’s game when all is said and done.
