The Tigers head into Cleveland for the first game of a 4-game series and in Game 1 they are a HUGE betting underdog.
The Indians have won 3 of their last 4 games and while they have no shot at the AL Central crown they are still alive for the playoffs 5 games out of the 2nd Wild Card spot.
The Tigers have been in a swoon the last few weeks losing 14 of their last 19 games and in that span their starters have an ERA of 6.15. They are out of the playoff picture in basement of the AL Central and 9.5 games out of the 2nd Wild Card.
The Tigers have won 35 of their last 51 games facing the Indians.
The Tigers have used 14 pitchers in this last 2 games and with their taxed bullpen they are hoping Alfredo Simon can go deep and give them a solid start.
There may be a good chance with that, as in 4 starts facing the Indians this season he is 4-0 with an ERA of only 1.50.
Simon was great on Saturday in a 6-0 Tigers win over the Indians on Saturday, but in his previous 2 starts he only lasted 9 innings and gave up 14 runs.
The Tigers are 5-0 in Simon’s last 5 starts facing a team with a losing record.
The Tigers have lost 7 of their last 8 road games.
Danny Salazar got the Saturday start in which the Indians were blanked with him giving up 6 runs in only 3 innings of work. In his previous 6 starts he had been pitching well with an ERA of only 2.03.
Salazar is 0-2 with a 13.50 ERA in his last 2 starts against the Tigers.
The Indians are 12-4 in Salazar’s last 16 starts vs. a team with a losing record.
The Cleveland pitching has been solid this season ranking 11th in team ERA, but they only rank 22nd in runs scored. The opposite goes for the Tigers, as they rank 10th in runs scored, but 28th in team ERA.
Even with the Tigers playing poor ball in the last few weeks not sure why the Tigers are such big betting favorites since Simon has dominated Cleveland this season.
