DETROIT: The Tigers are 12-1 in Fulmer's last 13 starts, 8-1 in his last nine road starts, and 7-1 in his last eight starts versus a team with a winning record. They're also a perfect 5-0 in his last five outings against American League East opponents and are 9-0 in his last nine starts when their opponent scores five runs or more in its previous game, as the Red Sox did last night in their 9-8 loss to the Tigers.
BOSTON: The Red Sox are just 1-4 in Rodriguez's last five starts and are winless at 0-4 in his last four home starts. They're also 1-4 in Rodriguez's last five starts when he pitches the third game of a series and are 0-4 in his last four outings when he's coming off four days of rest.
OUR PICK: Take Detroit. The Red Sox have dropped four of five at home and are 0-4 in their last four home games versus a right-handed starter. They're also 1-4 in their last five games versus American League Central opponents while the Tigers are 9-3 in their last 12 games versus AL East foes. Detroit is 13-3 in its last 16 games versus a starter with a WHIP greater than 1.30 as well.
