MLB FREE PICK: Take the under. According to latest MLB trends, Detroit is 6-13-1 Under in the last 20 meetings in Oakland, 6-16-4 Under last 26 road games with the total set at 7.0-8.5, 7-18-3 Under last 28 road games vs. a team with a winning record and is 1-6-1 Under in Sanchez's last 8 starts on grass. Oakland is 2-6 Under last 8 Tuesday games, 7-16-2 Under last 25 when their opponent scores 5 runs or more in their previous game, 17-36-1 Under last 54 home games vs. a right-handed starter and is 2-11-1 Under in Anderson's last 14 starts vs. American League Central. Oakland needs to win this game as they are down 2-0 to the Tigers. Sanchez has pitched well for the Tigers, especially in the last three starts, posting a 2.57 ERA. The Coliseum is one of the toughest places to hit in the major leagues. You can be a flyball pitcher and succeed in this park, even against a power-hitting team like the Tigers. Oakland gets a strong pitching performance from Brett Andreson but also has problems hitting Sanchez.
