I never would have expected it but this is actually a relevant game with Detroit winning much more than expected early on.
Cleveland was supposed to be a clear notch above Detroit this season but that has not been the case. The whole AL West is actually pretty tight right now. Cleveland appears to have the horses to compete – second in ERA – but they are dead last in scoring. Carlos Santana is walking a super high rate but they need him and others to start actually hitting.
Aaron Civale may be just 1-2 but he has pitched really well this season. He has a sterling 23/2 K:BB ratio but has received no support, just one run has been scored by Cleveland in his last two starts. There is every reason to think he will keep them in the game and give the offense a change to win it.
If you say you saw the Tigers being more competitive this season than you are lying. This team is limited but they are hitting much more than expected. They are 8th in runs thanks to an attack that is showing some power early on. Jacoby Jones could be an MVP candidate if he and the team keep it up – he leads in homers, hitting and OPS. The offense does not seem sustainable given the team is hitting just .235 and other than Miggy there aren’t a lot of strong track records.
The pitching has not been a surprise thought mabe slightly better than expected. Starter Ivan Nova has been getting by, which is about all you can expect from him these days. You throw him out there for five innings and hope for the best, maybe it works, maybe it doesn’t.
Closer Joe Jimenez needs to be a little sharper. If the Tigers are going to have success they need him to not create so much late-inning drama.
Free Cleveland Indians vs. Detroit Tigers MLB Prediction:
I have to admit I am still having a hard time with Detroit being competitive. I have long been a fan of fading Nova and in this matchup I don’t see how that is not the play Cleveland might eek it out thanks to poor offense but they can score enough to win.
