A pair of struggling American League teams begin their series in the Motor City as the Seattle Mariners take on the Detroit Tigers.
The Mariners continue to fall even further behind the red-hot Rangers in the American League West, but it hasn’t been because of a lack of run support.
The M’s still rank top-10 in the majors in OPS, home runs, slugging, hits and runs, but their pitching has been a bit suspect as of late.
Nathan Karns has contributed to some of those struggles, failing to go past the fifth inning in three straight starts and putting extra work on the bullpen.
Karns will get the start for Seattle against the Tigers in this one, and he’ll have to improve on his durability as the season progresses. He comes in with an impressive 5-2 record, but his numbers are far better when he’s pitching at home.
On the road, Karns has a 4.66 ERA and opposing batters are hitting him for a .270 average.
He’ll have to be much better than that against one of the best offenses in the majors.
Even though the Tigers are only at .500, the rest of the weak American League Central has opened the doors for them to make a run at the division.
Led by the always dangerous Miguel Cabrera, Detroit comes into this game 6th in runs and 2nd in hits.
Once again, the Tigers’ offense continues to be one of the most dominant lineups in the American League, but the team continues to struggle on the mound.
Mike Pelfrey was meant to rectify that problem when he joined Detroit from Minnesota, but so far he’s only exacerbated it.
Pelfrey has been a major disappointment with a 1-7 record this year, and his struggles have been even worse at home.
Pelfrey has a 5.51 ERA at Comerica Park where batters are hitting him for a .341 average. Yikes.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:
- Mariners are 21-14 on the road.
- Mariners are 0-3 in Karns’ last three starts.
- Tigers are 17-13 at home.
- Tigers are 4-6 in their last 10 games.
- Tigers are 4-9 when Pelfrey starts.
Free Detroit Tigers vs. Seattle Mariners MLB Prediction:
Both of these offenses can put up runs at ease, and I think that’s going to be the case on Monday. Karns has been rocky on the road this year, and Pelfrey has been dreadful at home.
Combine two struggling pitchers with two incredibly talented lineups, and the ‘over’ definitely comes into play.
I think the Mariners will steal this one on the road, and I think they’ll score a bunch of runs off Pelfrey and the abysmal Tigers bullpen.
