The Tigers will get a chance to face the team they are chasing in the wild-card race this weekend as they get their series with the Orioles underway tonight. Kevin Gausman will take the hill for the O’s, seeking his fifth straight win as he goes up against Detroit’s stud rookie Michael Fulmer (10-6, 2.77 ERA).
- The Orioles are 4-0 in their last four games after a loss.
- The Tigers are 4-1 in their last five games as favorite.
- The Orioles are 4-1 in their last five games on the road against the Tigers.
Gausman (7-10, 3.58 ERA) has not given up a run in three straight starts and recently earned his first road victory of the year in the Bronx. Before that win, Gausman was 0-9 on the road with an ERA over 5 and opposing batters were hitting over .290 off him.
Fulmer has fallen off his throne a little lately as he’s allowed three or more runs in all of his last three starts. The rook is 1-4 since the all-star break as hitters seem to have adjusted to him a little.
The UNDER is trending tonight as the Orioles have stayed below the set total in seven of their last 10 games and six of the last seven games pitched by Fulmer have gone UNDER.
