Preview

The Detroit Tigers and the Minnesota Twins will play the 3rd game of the series at the Target Field on Wednesday afternoon. The Twins got the win 2-0 in the second of the series. Gray struck out a season-high 10 over seven sharp innings, carrying the Twins past the Detroit Tigers 2-0 on Tuesday night for their sixth straight victory.

Detroit Tigers

The Tigers get here with a 14-28 record and have lost 5 of their last 6 games. The team is averaging only 2.72 runs per game and allowing 3.97 runs. Miguel Cabrera leads the team batting for .280 AVG, 3 home runs and 16 RBI.

Brieske needed 90 pitches to finish four innings, with six hits and one walk allowed. The Tigers have five starting pitchers on the injured list — Tyler Alexander, Matt Manning, Casey Mize, Michael Pineda and Eduardo Rodriguez and Spencer Turnbull, who's been out since last year.

Probable Pitcher:

Rony Garcia (0-0, 2.57 ERA) will be on the mound for the Tigers in the 3rd game of the series. Garcia is scheduled to make his first start of the season in Wednesday's game in Minnesota.

Minnesota Twins

The Twins get here with a 27-16 record and have won 6 straight games. The team is averaging 4.28 runs per game and allowing 3.53 runs. Luis Arraez is batting for .364 AVG. Byron Buxton leads with 21 RBI and 11 home runs.

Gray (2-1) allowed four hits and one walk in by far his best of six starts with his new team.

Probable Pitcher: Dylan Bundy (3-2, 5.14 ERA)

Bundy will be on the mound in the 3rd game of the series for the Twins. Bundy struck out three, walked two and allowed two hits in three shutout innings in a 5-2 loss Tuesday in Oakland. He did not factor into the decision. While his 5.14 ERA leaves something to be desired, his 25:7 K:BB is solid and he's allowed one run or fewer in four of six starts.

BETTING TRENDS

Detroit are 1-4 SU in their last 5 games on the road.

Detroit are 0-5 SU in their last 5 games when playing on the road against Minnesota.

The total has gone OVER in 5 of Minnesota's last 6 games.

Minnesota are 6-0 SU in their last 6 games.

Prediction

The Tigers lost for the 5th straight time against the Twins and couldn't do much against Sonny Gray. Now they'll face Bundy who has allowed one run or fewer in 4 of his last 6 starts. The Tigers will send Rony Garcia who will make his first start on the season. With the Tigers scoring less than 3 runs per game I think this game will stay under the total.

PICK: Under 8 (-120)
