Detroit vs Oakland by Sors
The Tigers, who will try to avoid being swept at home by the Oakland Athletics, were limited to three or fewer runs in eight of their last nine games and have .202 BA, with 18 runs and 3 HR over that span.
Miguel Cabrera is hitting .350 with 3 RBI and three walks in the last seven games, Jose Iglesias is hitting .286, with 1 RBI and two walks, but Yoenis Cespedes is 5-for-24, with 1 RBI, Nick Castellanos is hitting .118, with 3 RBI and 2 walks, Ian Kinsler is 2-for-21, with a homer and 3 walks, while Anthony Gose is hitting .043, with a walk.
Unlike Detroit, Oakland is in obvious upswing lately, as the A’s won five of their last six games and have .266 BA, with 28 runs in this period.
Shane Greene (4-4 with a 5.19 ERA), who will start for Detroit, is coming off the worst start in his career, as the right-hander yielded 6 hits and 7 runs over 1 2/3 innings of a 6-8 loss against the Angels last Saturday.
In the point of fact, Greene posted a 3.24 ERA in his previous five starts at Comerica Park, but it doesn’t change the fact that he is far from his best shape in this moment.The right-hander gave up 8 hits and 4 runs over 5 2/3 innings of a 0-4 loss at Oakland on May 25.
The A’s will send to the mound Jesse Hahn (2-5 with a 3.77 ERA), who yielded 5 hits and 4 runs (three earned) over six innings in his last start against the Yankees on May 30 (3-5).
On the other hand, he was outstanding in his previous start versus Detroit, in which the right-hander gave up just 4 hits over nine scoreless innings of a 4-0 win at O.co Coliseum on May 25, with five strikeouts.
Hahn surrendered three or fewer earned runs in eight of his previous ten starts this season.
My bet is on the Oakland Athletics in the final game of this series.
