Athletics dominant over Tigers
The Oakland Athletics earned their seventh consecutive win over the Tigers on Tuesday with a 9-7 victory. Oakland is now 42-38 overall and 22-18 on the road. The Athletics are putting up 4.64 runs per game this season while allowing 4.54 per contest.
Chris Bassitt takes the mound for the Athletics this evening. He has started three games this season and is 0-3 with a 3.86 ERA and a 1.16 WHIP. Bassitt has pitched a total of 16.1 innings this year and has 13 strikeouts with three walks.
Tigers continue freefall
The Tigers suffered their seventh straight loss on Tuesday in the 9-7 loss. While they saw a hitting surge, Detroit gave up at least nine runs for the fourth time in this losing streak. The Tigers are 36-44 overall and 23-19 at home. Detroit is scoring 4.09 runs per game while allowing 4.78 per contest.
Mike Fiers is getting the start for the Tigers this evening. He has already started 14 games this season and is carrying a 5-4 record with a 4.29 ERA and a 1.33 WHIP. Fiers has pitched a total of 77.2 innings and has 58 strikeouts with 18 walks.
MLB Betting Trends
Oakland has won 10 of its last 13 road games against a right-handed starter and 38 of its last 53 against AL Central opponents.
The Tigers have won Fiers’ last six home starts, but they have lost 40 of their last 57 against a winning team.
Bassitt has been pretty good on the mound and not gotten good results. Fiers has not had particularly great numbers, but gotten good results for his team. Detroit had a 6-0 lead in last night’s game before letting things get out of reach. I think the Tigers can snap out of this losing streak tonight. Fiers has been able to lead them to wins while the Oakland hitting hasn’t been able to help Bassitt.
The Pick: Detroit Tigers +125
