Prediction:

In this matchup, we predict that the Detroit Tigers will win. Here's why:

The Tigers have a significant advantage with Tarik Skubal on the mound. Skubal has been outstanding with a 5-0 record, a 2.02 ERA, and a 0.86 WHIP, showcasing his ability to dominate opposing hitters.

In contrast, the Diamondbacks' Ryne Nelson has struggled with a 5.33 ERA and a 1.70 WHIP, indicating potential vulnerabilities that the Tigers' offense can exploit.

The Tigers' balanced lineup and solid pitching give them the upper hand, especially against an Arizona team that has shown inconsistency throughout the season. Detroit's ability to perform well on the road further strengthens their position.
