After getting swept in their last series by the Cleveland Indians to fall to 20-24, the Detroit Tigers will be very hungry for a victory tonight in Game 1 against the Minnesota Twins. They should have no problem getting a win against a team that is tied for the worst record (15-29) in baseball.
Detroit sends underrated rookie left-hander Drew Smyly to the mound tonight as he looks to continue his success in the early going. Smyly has pitched great, going 1-1 with a 2.89 ERA and 1.191 WHIP in eight starts. He’s 1-0 with a 2.35 ERA and 0.957 WHIP in four road outings.
Minnesota starter Anthony Swarzak is simply overmatched in this one. Swarzak is 0-3 with a 6.75 ERA and 1.636 WHIP as a starter this season. He’s pitched much better out of the bullpen, but he’s been terrible when asked to start. Swarzak is also 0-1 with an 11.57 ERA and 2.000 WHIP in two career starts against Detroit.
The Tigers are 26-10 against the money line after having lost 3 of their last 4 games over the last 2 seasons. Detroit is 6-1 in their last 7 after scoring 2 runs or less in their previous game. The Tigers are 36-16 in their last 52 games following a loss. The Twins are 13-38 in their last 51 home games, and 3-10 in Swarzak’s last 13 home starts. Bet the Tigers Friday.
