The struggling Detroit Tigers might just be running into the Yankees at the right time, as the Bronx Bombers continue to struggle and if they lose a series to the Tigers you can guarantee the alarm bells will once again be ringing in The Big Apple.
It does not feel like that long ago that the Detroit Tigers were sweeping the Houston Astros at Minute Maid Field, but I think most fans knew that was a bit of a fluke, as this Tigers team has lost 11 of their last 13 games.
It has been an all around struggle for this team as well, as their batting lineup has fallen to being one of the worst units in the league with the only positives of this season being rare individual performances from guys like rookie pitcher Casey Mize.
Tarik Skubal is going to get the start for the Tigers here, although he is not going to be going into this game, as they use him of more of a place reliever for the time being, but he was decent in his last start and the pressure of playing at Yankee Stadium might just make the young lefty even better.
New York Yankees
It seemed next to impossible during the preseason to imagine this stacked batting lineup would have a collective batting average of just .215 ranking 26th overall in the league, as they have just not been able to get it going yet this season.
We obviously know what they can do when they do get going with the likes of Aaron Judge and Giancarlo Stanton, but it is going to take more then just those two all star level players to get this team to where it needs to be in terms of it’s batting unit.
Thankfully for Yankees fans they probably do not have to worry too much about losing this contest, as they send Gerrit Cole to the mound who has been lights out so far this year and he really should have no problem mowing through this Detroit Tigers batting lineup who just don’t have the talent to deal with a guy like Cole.

Free Detroit Tigers vs. New York Yankees MLB Prediction:
I do not expect the Tigers to score more then one run in this game, so I think laying the 2.5 runs here with the Yankees should be fine as they should be able to put up 4 or 5 here even despite their struggles with the bat in hand.
