Tigers silenced by Oakland
The Tigers have lost four straight following a 6-2 loss on Monday. Detroit has scored just three runs over the four losses. Detroit is now 47-66 overall and 18-39 on the road. Detroit is putting up just 3.78 runs per game this season while allowing 4.57 per contest.
Jacob Turner gets the start for the Tigers tonight. He was originally drafted by the Tigers, but has been a journeyman for the past few years. This season, he has four appearances with Miami, but has a 15.88 ERA after allowing 10 earned runs in 5.2 innings of work. Turner has five walks and two strikeouts.
Angels in a funk
The Angels got a needed win on Monday, as they had lost six of seven prior to that. Los Angeles continues to be without Mike Trout, who is dealing with a wrist injury and out for tonight. The Angels are now 56-58 overall and 30-28 at home. Los Angeles is scoring 4.51 runs per game this year while giving up 4.26 per contest.
Andrew Heaney makes the start for the Angels tonight. He is 6-7 through 20 starts and has a 3.75 ERA with a 1.13 WHIP. Heaney has pitched 122.1 innings this year and has 116 strikeouts with 32 walks.
MLB Betting Trends
The Tigers are just 8-20 in their last 28 games following a loss and 7-19 in their last 26 Tuesday games.
The Angels have won five of their last six home games coming into tonight and nine of their last 13 against losing teams.
The Tigers don’t have much to offer and now they send Turner to the mound, who has been awful this year. He isn’t likely to last long in his start and Detroit doesn’t have a bullpen to turn to to stop the bleeding. Heaney isn’t a dominant pitcher either, but he can put together good starts and is facing a pedestrian Detroit lineup tonight.
The Pick: Los Angeles Angels -200
