The Detroit Tigers are on the road for the finale of a five-game series with the Minnesota Twins on Monday afternoon. The Tigers will give the nod to M. Fulmer. And the Twins will counter M. Pineda.
Detroit Tigers Form
The Tigers are heading into this game after suffering 4 defeats in the row. Including the latest on Sunday in the last game against the Twins. So now, the Tigers are fourth in the AL Central, 6.5 games behind the White Sox for the top spot in the division. As for the playoffs, Detroit stands three games behind the final playoff spot in the American League going into Sunday. Therefore, they will need to step up in order to secure a spot in the postseason this year.
Michael Fulmer will be making his seventh start of the season for the Tigers in this contest. He comes in with no record, a 7.27 ERA, a 1.904 WHIP, nine walks and 17 strikeouts over 17.1 innings of work this season.
Minnesota Twins Form
The Twins have three wins in a row in this series. Moreover, their recent record stands at 5 wins in a row now. The Twins entered Sunday tied for second in the AL Central race, half a game behind the White Sox for the top spot in the division race. The Twins are one of the better teams this season. And they are one of the teams that are tipped to go far in the postseason.
Michael Pineda is expected to take the mound for the Twins and this will be his second start of the season in this contest. He comes in with no record, a 3.00 ERA, a 1.167 WHIP, one walk and four strikeouts on the year.
Detroit has struggled with four straight losses and their offensive attack has been inconsistent at best. And on the other side, Minnesota has solid pitching and capable hitters in the lineup. Without much doubt, it is safe to say that the Twins are the better team and I expect them to win this game as well.
