This American League matchup includes a pitching duel of two pitchers that are out of their time in this day in age.
The Detroit Tigers send there one time Cy Young winner, Justin Verlander.
The Baltimore Orioles send out Ubaldo Jimenez with the unorthodox delivery.
The Detroit Tigers currently stand in 4th place in the American League Central.
But their bats have not disappointed thus far in the season, they still carry the heavy veteran hitters that we are used to seeing.
They are led in all categories by Nick Castellanos. Castellanos is hitting .378 on the year, with 7 home runs and 28 RBI’s all which lead the Tigers.
The veteran DH Victor Martinez is hitting .348 on the year, with 15 extra base hits and 18 runs batted in. The one time batting champ Miguel Cabrera is hitting .288 with 4 home runs and 14 RBI’s.
Justin Verlander takes the bump on Friday against the O’s. Verlander is struggling this year. He is currently 2-3 with a 5.40 E.R.A. and 42 strikeouts. He was last in action against Texas in a no decision.
He threw a very good ball game where he threw 7 innings with no earned runs and only 3 hits, walked 2 batters and had 9 strikeouts.
Verlander looks to keep things rolling against the Orioles.
The Orioles are surprising one of the best teams in the AL This Orioles team has a big time opportunity to make some noise later on in the year.
The O’s are led in hitting by Manny Machado. Machado is hitting .359 with 10 home runs and 15 2 baggers. Mark Trumbo is right behind him with a .323 average and 11 home runs. He also leads the team in RBI’s with 27. The big hitter Chris Davis is also having a heck of a year.
Davis is hitting .242 but has 9 dingers and 23 RBI’s. The O’s are a very well rounded team at the plate.
The O’s send out Ubaldo Jimenez on Friday against the Tigers. Jimenez is on the downhill of his career. He is 2-3 in the year with a 4.54 E.R.A. and 35 strikeouts.
He was last in action in a win against the Athletics.
Jimenez pitched 8 solid innings with only giving up 2 earned runs on 9 hits and striking out 6 strikouts. Ubaldo looks to keep things rolling on the mound at home on Friday.

Free Detroit Tigers vs. Baltimore Orioles MLB Prediction:
This game has the opportunity to be a very high scoring game with the amount of bats these two teams have.
Or it can very well be 2-1 and Verlander and Jimenez throw the gems they used to throw every time out.
I’m going to go with the high scoring game. Both of these pitchers are coming off of big time games that they pitched in, I believe that they’re in the point in their career where that does not happen back to back games.
Look for the O’s lineup to beat up on Verlander in this one.
