The Tigers have been awful this year and not much has changed in their last 10 going 2-8 over that span. They now have the challenge of the Athletics in front of them at the Coliseum.
This might turn out to be a really tough series for them batting wise as they come into this game with one of the worst batting units in the majors and now have to go against a darn good pitching unit in the Athletics.
The Tigers will go with Jordan Zimmermann (1-9, 6.03 ERA) who has had a down year, but has turned that around a bit as of late. In his last 3 games he has gone 17 innings and only allowed 6 runs during that time.
He will be in a decent spot to continue that good form given that Oakland does not have the best offense and the ballpark itself does not allow many runs.
The Athletics have been solid and are now riding a 3 game winning streak and have a 7-3 record in their last 10.
They will look to capitalize on this awesome spot on Saturday and push towards a safer Wild Card position as they are only 1 game ahead of the Cleveland Indians.
Trying to do just that, the Athletics will hand the ball to Chris Bassitt (9-5, 3.67 ERA) who is having a nice year for the team.
Bassitt is, however, coming off a rough outing against the Kansas City Royals where he surrendered 5 runs (only 3 earned) on 6 hits in 4.2 innings pitched and only had 1 strikeout.
That wouldn’t be a terrible pitching line against a good offense, but the Royals are a pretty terrible hitting side so he will be looking to bounceback in this spot against the Tigers.

Free Detroit Tigers vs. Oakland Athletics MLB Prediction:
This has under written all over it for me. Bassitt should bounceback with this awesome matchup and Zimmermann has been significantly better over his last 3 outings.
The ballpark does not concede many runs at all and both of these teams don’t hit the ball very well. I know the bookies will likely be all over this one posting a 7 or 7.5 line for this one, but believe it will still go under.
