The Detroit Tigers look to right the ship as they close out their critical series with the first-place Texas Rangers in Arlington. This one features two impressive starters, so buckle up and get ready.
The Tigers find themselves just 1.5 games out of the final AL Wild Card spot despite spiraling down with an ill-timed five-game losing streak.
Led by the bats of Miguel Cabrera and Ian Kinsler, Detroit can never be counted out of a game.
The team is still within striking distance of the first-place Cleveland Indians for the division lead, but the Tigers must get things going so they don’t fall any further behind.
Luckily, the Tigers will send Michael Fulmer to the mound as he searches for his 10th win of the season.
Fulmer has been Detroit’s best pitcher this year and the team has won eight of the last 10 games which he has started.
In 79 road innings, Fulmer has a 2.85 ERA and a WHIP of just 1.15.
The Rangers lead the AL West by more than seven games and have turned things around after a bit of a rough patch during the middle of July.
Texas has won six of its last seven games, due in large part to the addition of All-Star catcher Jonathan Lucroy.
The Rangers have scored more than six runs per game over their last six contests and still possess one of the best home records in the big leagues.
They’ll send A.J. Griffin to the mound as he looks to rebound from his previous start where he was tagged for five earned runs against the Colorado Rockies.
The Rangers have won Griffin’s last four starts as well as seven of his last 10.
The Tigers knocked Griffin around the last time they saw him, however, as he surrendered four earned runs in just 2.2 innings of work in May.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:
- Tigers 28-33 on the road.
- Tigers are 7-1 in Fulmer’s last eight starts.
- Fulmer has a .228 BAA on the road.
- Rangers are 36-18 at home.
- Griffin has a .224 BAA at home.
Free Detroit Tigers vs. Texas Rangers MLB Prediction:
This should be an exciting game as both teams make their push for the postseason. While the Rangers have a comfortable lead in the AL West, the Tigers are still scrapping to stay alive in the AL Central.
I think the Tigers will steal one in Texas because Michael Fulmer has been one of the American League’s best pitchers.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Detroit ML
A.J. Griffin has looked good this year, but Michael Fulmer has been the more consistent pitcher. Fulmer has allowed an average of 1.5 runs per game over his last 10 starts, a stat that is more than incredible.
I’ll take the Tigers.
