Tigers win 1st game of doubleheader

The Tigers and Red Sox were rained out Monday in Boston so they played a day-night double header on Tuesday. In the first game, the Tigers beat the Sox 7-4 to improve to 11-10. The second game of the doubleheader was played Tuesday night. The Tigers broke open a 3-3 game in the top of the 8th when Josh Harrison hit a two-run double and Grayson Greiner followed with an RBI single to make it 6-3. Matt Boyd gave up just 3 runs on 3 hits in 7 innings for Detroit. Greiner had 2 hits including a home run and 2 RBIs, while Ronny Rodriguez had 3 hits including a homer and 2 RBIs. Harrison also had 2 hits and 2 RBIs.

The Tigers average 3.05 runs per game, which is 28th in the MLB. They hit just .218 as a team, which is 26th in the league, and they have a slugging percentage of .346, which is 27th. The Tigers have a team ERA of 3.25, which is 5th in the MLB. They have a team WHIP of 1.15, which is 5th in the league. Niko Goodrum leads the Tigers with an average of .279 with 2 HR and 8 RBIs. Miguel Cabrera is hitting .267 while Nick Castellanos is hitting .261. Christin Stewart leads the team with 3 HRs and 13 RBIs.

Tyson Ross gets the start for the Tigers. The right-hander is 1-2 on the year with an ERA of 3.38. Ross has a WHIP of 1.25 and opposing teams are batting .233 against him.

Sox get back to losing

The Boston Red Sox have been one of the biggest surprises of the 2019 season, and not in a good way. They have gotten off to one of the worst starts in baseball, which was surprising for a team that won the World Series last year. But they got something going this past weekend, sweeping the first place Tampa Bay Rays. But now they are back to losing, dropping the first game of a doubleheader to the Tigers on Tuesday 7-4. Chris Sale got the start and pitched well for Boston, but got a no-decision. He gave up 2 runs on 5 hits in 5 innings with 10 strikeouts. Xander Bogaerts went 2 for 4 with 2 HRs and 2 RBIs.

Boston averages 4.23 runs per game, which is 21st in the league. They are batting .232 as a team, 21st in the MLB. They have a slugging percentage of .385, which is 23rd overall. JD Martinez leads the Sox with an average of .350 with 4 HRs and 11 RBIs. Andrew Benintendi is hitting .282 with 2 HRs and 11 RBIs, while Xander Bogaerts is batting ,276 with 4 HRs and 12 RBIs. Moreland is batting .258 with 7 HR and 14 RBIs.

Rodriguez takes the hill for Boston Wednesday. Rodriguez is 1-2 with a 7.20 ERA. He has a WHIP of 1.65 and opponents bat .302 against him.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

Take the Red Sox. Boston had been playing well despite losing the opener of the doubleheader against the Tigers. Rodriguez has been pretty bad this year, but the Red Sox have a knack for picking him up. The Sox are 5-0 in Rodriguezs last 5 Wednesday starts and 5-1 in Rodriguezs last 6 starts vs. American League Central.

Prediction: Boston -198

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

Take the over. The Red Sox bats are starting to wake up and I expect them to get to Ross playing at home. And Sox pitcher Rodriguez has been getting pounded, so expect a lot of runs. The over is 4-0-2 in Red Sox last 6 home games vs. a team with a losing road record and 12-5-2 in their last 19 home games. Also, the over is 6-1 in Tigers last 7 road games vs. a left-handed starter and 4-1 in their last 5 games vs. a starter with a WHIP greater than 1.30.

Prediction: Over
