The Indians have owned the Tigers during the first two games of this series, and Detroit will look to salvage the series in Sunday’s finale.
Cleveland’s pitching has led the way so far despite a 10-run performance on Saturday. Detroit has struggled against AL Central opponents this year, and the Tigers will send Shane Greene to the mound to counter Cleveland’s Carlos Carrasco.
The Indians exploded for 10 runs against the Tigers on Saturday for some much-needed offense. Cleveland came into the game scoring just 3.9 runs per game, but the Tribe was able to jump all over Anibal Sanchez for eight runs in the first three innings.
The Indians managed 15 hits in the win and improved to 8-7 on the young season.
Cleveland usually doesn’t have much going offensively, and that needs to change if the Indians want to contend with the big boys of the AL Central.
Mike Napoli leads the team with three home runs and nine RBI, and young Francisco Lindor leads the club with a .307 average and an OBP of .377.
But the Indians will have Carlos Carrasco on the mound, and they’re always in position to win when he toes the rubber. Carrasco comes in with a 2-0 record and an impressive 1.03 WHIP. He also possesses a K:BB ratio of more than 3:1, and the Indians have to feel good about stealing the Sunday finale in Detroit.
The Tigers were humiliated at home on Saturday and will look to bounce back to avoid the series sweep. Unfortunately, they’ll send Shane Greene to the mound, and he’s just not a good pitcher.
Greene comes in with a bloated ERA of 7.15 and a WHIP of 1.41. In his previous start against the Royals on April 19, Greene was shelled for seven earned runs in just 4.1 innings of work as the Tigers lost 8-6.
Detroit still has a potent offense even with Miguel Cabrera’s struggling. Ian Kinsler leads the team with a .343 batting average and Jarrod Saltalamacchia is hitting for power with six home runs and 15 RBI.
The biggest problem for the Tigers will be getting to Carrasco, who’s been solid this season.

Free Cleveland Indians vs. Detroit Tigers MLB Prediction:
The Indians finally found their offense on Saturday and should carry that into Sunday’s finale against Shane Greene.
Greene was lit up in his last start and struggled all of last season as well. Carrasco has only allowed two earned runs over his last 14.1 innings, and the Indians are 3-0 this year when he’s taken the mound.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Cleveland ML
With their 10-1 shellacking of the Tigers on Saturday, the Indians are now 4-1 against the AL Central. Cleveland has also won its last three games at Comerica Park, and I trust Carlos Carrasco much more than I do Shane Greene.
I’ll go with the Tribe and a pretty favorable price in this one.
