The Detroit Tigers are all set to host the Baltimore Orioles in the next MLB matchup on April 28, 2023, at Comerica Park in Detroit, Michigan. Our MLB experts' picks favor the Tigers to win this game, as Eduardo Rodriguez is set to dominate the Orioles once again.
Both teams have played three games against each other this season, and the Orioles have come out as the winners in all three.
The Tigers will be relying heavily on Rodriguez to carry them to a win, and he is more than capable of doing so. In his last 15 innings pitched, Rodriguez has not allowed a single run, showcasing his incredible form.
On the other hand, Grayson Rodriguez will start for the Orioles, who has been average at best so far this season. In 19.1 innings pitched, Rodriguez has an ERA of 5.12 and has allowed 21 hits, including two home runs.
The Orioles have been in excellent form this season, with their hitters delivering consistently. Ryan Mountcastle has been the standout player for them with six home runs and 20 RBI's. He will be the key player for the Orioles in this game. As for the Tigers, they have been struggling to find their footing in the hitting department, with Nick Maton being their best performer so far. In four home runs and 12 RBI's, Maton has shown some potential, but the team needs more from its hitters.
The Orioles have Mychal Givens and Dillon Tate on the 15-day injured list, while Austin Hays is listed as day-to-day. On the other hand, the Tigers have a long list of injured players, with Trevor Rosenthal, Jackson Jobe, Tarik Skubal, Jace Fry, and Javier Baez all either out or listed as day-to-day.
With Rodriguez's exceptional form, the Tigers will be confident of their chances against the Orioles. The Tigers' hitters may have struggled so far this season, but they are due for a breakthrough, and this game could be the turning point. On the other hand, the Orioles' form has been fantastic, but it is unlikely to continue against a pitcher of Rodriguez's caliber.
Grayson Rodriguez only good start this season has been against the Tigers but honestly he got lucky as he gave away 5 hits and 3 bases but the Tigers couldn't take advantage of the opportunities but I expect that to be different at home.
In conclusion, the Tigers should take this opportunity to avenge their previous defeats against the Orioles and pick up a much-needed win. Rodriguez is expected to continue his excellent form on the mound, which should be enough to propel the Tigers to victory.
