Fiers was able to put in a quality start and picked up his fifth win of the season in a 7-2 victory over the Texas Rangers. He went six innings giving up five hits, one earned run and one home run while he struck out six and walked one.
In 98.2 innings of work, Fiers owns a 6.75 K/9, 1.92 BB/9, 1.55 HR/9, and an 80.8% LOB%. The end-result is a decent 3.65 ERA, but once his fortunate .272 BABIP regresses, we should see his ERA fall more towards his 4.66 FIP.
Detroit continues to play losing baseball as they could only win two of their last seven contests. During that span their lineup is slashing .244/.304/.353 to go with 16 extra-base hits and 24 RBI.
Keuchel was able to put in a quality start and picked up his sixth win of the season in a 2-1 victory over the Chicago White Sox. He went seven innings giving up six hits and one earned run, while he struck out two and walked three.
In 116.1 innings of work, Keuchel owns a low strikeout (6.89 K/9) rate, but he has done well limiting free bases (2.48 BB/9), limiting home runs (0.93 HR/9), and stranding base runners (72.0% LOB%). The end-result is a 3.95 ERA and a slightly better 3.79 FIP.
Houston continues to play winning baseball as they won five of their last seven contests in the past week. During that span their lineup is slashing .265/.353/.408 to go with 18 extra-base hits and 36 RBI.

Both pitchers are coming off of quality starts and I like that to continue before these bull pens get involved. I’ll be rolling with the under in the first five innings.
