The Tigers and Rangers continue their 3 game weekend series with a day affair on Saturday.
Both teams limp into this series, losing 3 straight games.
The Rangers opened offensive struggles have become quite alarming for them.
Still, though, nobody in the AL West has taken off in the division, which has been a giant plus for the Rangers. Texas sits only 2.5 games behind the Mariners for first place and thats thanks in large to their pitching. The starting rotation has been the backbone to this team early and one of those undefeated pitchers will take the hill on Saturday.
AJ Griffin currently sits at 3-0 on the year with an ERA of just 2.32. In his 5 starts this year, Griffin has not allowed more than 3 runs in the process. He was on the tough end of the a ND last time out, as he allowed just 1 run in 6.0 innings of work.
The Rangers are 4-1 in Griffin’s 5 starts this year.
The Tigers offense is good, there is nothing to doubt about that. Despite them going somewhat cold in Cleveland, the pitching has really let them down this year.
The starting rotation was always a giant question mark and despite Zimmerman, who will start Friday, this rotation has been horrific.
One of those horrific starters will get the ball here in Mike Pelfrey. In back to back outings, Pelfrey has allowed 5 runs a piece. However, the offense did bail him out of his last start and earned him a ND which put an end to his 4 consecutive losses. Pelfrey has allowed 7 runs in 2 home starts.

Free Texas Rangers vs. Detroit Tigers MLB Prediction:
Mike Pelfrey has had nothing working with him this season.
All his pitches have been flat and he tends to leave a lot of pitches up in the zone. Expect this Rangers offense to get to him once again here.
