Detroit has gotten off the mat lately, winning six of their last eight. How long they can keep something like that up is anyone’s guess.
Seattle lost the series opener last night, snapping a three-game winning streak .
The Tigers won 4-1 last night and generally their more recent success has stemmed from more reliable pitching. The offense is still only 28th in the league in runs per game, just under 3.5.
Spencer Turnbull had his best start of the season in his more recent game, a win over Kansas City. It was his longest start too, throwing 99 pitches. He has been playable this season because he is keeping the ball in the ballpark, only one homer allowed.
Detroit has tinkered with its bullpen and is now using Michael Fulmer back there with some success. He has a few saves and gives them some flexibility as a guy that can pitch multiple innings.
The Mariners are at .500. I am not sure that is something they can keep up this season but they are an interesting team as they integrated their top prospects into the mix.
The last time we saw Justin Dunn he was getting knocked around by the Dodgers. Dunn is not going to have any kind of consistent success until he hems in the walks. That rate is up from a season ago.
Kendall Graveman has been awesome in relief this season. He has yet to give up a run and has allowed only 6 hits over 16 innings. The bullpen is not holding Seattle back.

Free Detroit Tigers vs. Seattle Mariners MLB Prediction:
I am leaning to the home team here but for the first time all season, Detroit is making me pause and look at them a little more closely. The wins have been nice but predicting them impossible.
Dunn’s lack of control won’t hurt him as much against a pretty light Detroit lineup
