Money Line: 109.00 Detroit (Away)
The Tigers have been hitting the ball well, scoring 14 runs in their last three games and they have scored four or more runs in six of their last seven games. The Tigers will look to get back in the winning column by sending Casey Mize to the mound. He is 5-5 this season with a 3.44 ERA and 79 strikeouts. In his career against the Royals, he is 2-1 with a 4.56 ERA and 14 strikeouts.
The Royals have won three in a row as their offense has produced 16 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in five of their last six games. The Royals will send Carlos Hernandez to the mound to face the Tigers. He is 1-1 with a 4.91 ERA and 36 strikeouts this season. Against the Tigers, he is 0-1 with a 5.79 ERA.
The Tigers are red hot since the All-Start break despite the loss yesterday. Mize has allowed four earned runs in his last 11 innings. Carlos Hernandez's regular duty is that of a relief pitcher so you won't get a lot of innings from him today. Give me the Tigers bats over the Royals pen.
Play on Detroit.
