The Houston Astros and the Detroit Tigers will meet again to play the 2nd game of the series at the Comerica Park. The Astros shoutout the Tigers 7-0 in the first game of the series. Framber Valdez pitched his first career shutout.
The Tigers get here with a 54-87 record and have won 3 of their last 5 games. They're averaging 3.36 runs and batting for .231 AVG, 467 runs scored in 1064 hits and 88 home runs, ranking #30 in offense, the worst in the league behind the Oakland Athletics. Javi Baez is leading in home runs with 12 and 55 RBI and batting for an average of .231.
Defensively they are allowing 4.45 runs per game and ranking #20 in the league. Tarik Skubal leads the pitching staff with a 3.52 ERA, 117 strikeouts and 7 wins recorded.
Probable Pitcher: Drew Hutchison (2-7, 4.08 ERA)
Hutchison will be on the mound in the 2nd game of the series for the Tigers. Hutchison allowed two runs on five hits across four innings and did not factor into the decision in Wednesday's game against the Angels. He walked two and struck out three. He is 1-1 with an ERA of 5.71 and 20 strikeouts in 4 appearances versus the Astros in his career.
The Astros get here with a 91-50 record and have won 7 of their last 10 games. They're averaging 4.46 runs and batting for .246 AVG, 620 runs scored in 1131 hits and 178 home runs, ranking #11 in offense in the league behind the Milwaukee Brewers. Yordan Alvarez leads the team batting for .303 avg with 32 home runs and 83 RBI.
Defensively they are allowing 3.25 runs per game and ranking #2 in the league. Justin Verlander leads the pitching staff with a 1.84 ERA, 154 strikeouts and 16 wins recorded for the Astros.
Probable Pitcher: Hunter Brown (1-0, 0.00 ERA)
Brown will be on the mound in the 2nd game of the series for the Astros. The rookie right-hander will pick up a second turn through Houston's rotation coming off a dazzling MLB debut against the Rangers on Sept. 5, when he struck out five over six scoreless frames.
Houston are 5-0 SU in their last 5 games against Detroit.
Houston are 6-1 SU in their last 7 games on the road.
Houston are 9-2 SU in their last 11 games when playing on the road against Detroit.
Detroit are 4-9 SU in their last 13 games.
The total has gone UNDER in 7 of Detroit's last 8 games against Houston.
Detroit are 1-6 SU in their last 7 games at home.
The Astros offense continue to stay hot as they have scored 19 runs in their last 2 games. For this game they'll send the rookie Hunter Brown who was solid in his debut this season pitching 6 scoreless innings against the Rangers. Drew Hutchison will start for the Tigers who has been decent lately and the Tigers have won in his last 3 starts. The Astros are hot right now and have dominated the Tigers this season and I don't see how that can change. Take the Astros again.
PICK: Astros -1.5 (-140)
