This American League matchup includes two teams that currently stand in 2nd place in their division.
The Detroit Tigers have been trailing the Indians for some time now, they stand 6 games back.
The Boston Red Sox had the lead in the AL East last week, but now are 1.5 games behind the Orioles.
The Detroit Tigers lineup has been successful at the top this season. They are led in hitting by Nick Castellanos.
Castellanos is hitting .297 on the season with 43 extra base hits and 55 RBIs. Miguel Cabrera has come around after a slow start.
He is hitting .295 so far with 19 home runs and has 57 runs batted in. Ian Kinsler leads the Tigers slightly in home runs with 20; he also has 57 RBIs to go with a .294 average.
The Tigers look to knock around Steven Wright who has been tough to beat recently.
The Detroit Tigers have Mike Pelfrey taking the rock on Tuesday; he has been struggling as of late. Pelfrey is currently 3-9 with a 4.78 E.R.A. and 47 strikeouts to date.
He last received a win in his last start against the Chicago White Sox. Pelfrey worked in 5.1 innings where he only gave up 1 earned run on 8 hits.
Pelfrey only struck out 1 batter, and he also walked 1. He will look to come back against the Red Sox and have another quality start.
Boston Red Sox
The Boston Red Sox lineup has been very strong for the most part this season. Xander Bogaerts has led this team in hitting for most of this season.
He is hitting .333 with 35 extra base hits and has knocked in 61 runs this season. David Ortiz is having a stellar final season.
Ortiz is hitting .332 on the season with 24 dingers and has 81 RBIs. Mookie Betts was in some trade rumors over the weekend, but he will make the start Tuesday.
Betts is currently hitting .307 on the season with 50 extra base hits and 63 RBIs. The Red Sox will look to knock Pelfrey out of this game early on Tuesday.
The Boston Red Sox have Steven Wright on the mound on Tuesday and he has looked very good as of late. Wright is currently 12-5 on the season with a 2.67 E.R.A and 107 strikeouts.
Wright was last in action against the Minnesota Twins were he got the victory. He worked in 8 innings of work where he gave up only 1 earned run on 4 hits.
Wright struck out 9 and walked 1 batter in the win. He looks to continue the very good season he is having.

Free Detroit Tigers vs. Boston Red Sox MLB Prediction:
This game includes some of the best hitting lineups in the AL currently, but I’m taking the Red Sox in this one. Steven Wright has been pitching a very high level all of this season and I look for it to continue.
The biggest factor in this game is how good the Red Sox lineup is combined with how bad Pelfrey has been. I look for Pelfrey to exit the game early in this one, as the Sox will punish him.
