Tuesday night features yet another matchup between AL Central rivals Cleveland and Detroit, and with playoff implications on the line for the Tigers, this is shaping up to be a pivotal game two of four.
Game one saw the Indians take control and come away with the win.
With a matchup between Mike Clevinger and Justin Verlander on the hill, game two should be fun to watch.
Every game is critical for Detroit at this point and with just a handful of games left in the 2016 season the Tigers can maybe — and that is a doubtful MAYBE — afford one more loss this season.
After a huge run through the middle of September to stay relevant in the AL Postseason race the Tigers dropped two tough games to the Kansas City Royals over the weekend and found themselves 1.5 games back in the AL Wild Card heading into the opener of their series against Cleveland.
Now the Tigers find themselves locked in with the Mariners in the Wild Card Race after a loss in game 1.
Offensively the Tigers have been potent as usual and will look to extend their offensive rhythm against Mike Clevinger. They’ll be aided by the efforts of Justin Verlander, who gets the start for Detroit.
What is there to say about the 2016 Cleveland Indians that hasn’t been said already? Wow, just wow. Who saw them coming?
And with that win on Monday? Yeah, they locked up the division. These boys can seemingly do no wrong right now.
On the hill for the Indians will be Mike Cleavinger. He sports a 2-2 record with a 4.65 ERA and has pitched just 2 innings against the Tigers, giving up one hit while walking two and striking out one.
Don’t expect him to pitch too long into the night as his longest outing in 2016 has been a 5 ⅔ innings appearance against the Los Angeles Angels on August 13th.
If the Indians want to take game two, however, they’re going to need to find some offensive production as well against Verlander.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:
- After giving up 14 runs in the month of May, Mike Clevinger has allowed just 12 runs since
- Verlander has a 6.46 ERA against the Indians this year
- Detroit is 5-2 in Verlander’s past 7 starts
Free Cleveland Indians vs. Detroit Tigers MLB Prediction:
Tuesday night has the potential to be big for both the Indians and Tigers.
On the one hand the Indians need to establish momentum heading into the postseason and not coast into a Divisional Series thinking they’ll automatically come away with a win.
On the other side are the Detroit Tigers, clawing and fighting their way towards an AL Wild Card berth. While I think the Tigers will be greatly aided by Verlander in this one, I have the Indians coming away with a close win.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Cleveland ML
These two teams are well-suited for postseason runs. While the Tigers have some work to do in the AL Wild Card they have the talent and staff to make an extended appearance in October.
The Indians, meanwhile, look primed to keep the surprises coming. Cleveland takes game two to establish some great momentum heading into the postseason. Plus, they’ve had Verlander’s number all year long.
