The Detroit Tigers have quickly turned their season around and are now one of the hottest teams in the MLB and sit just two games back of the once thought to be uncatchable Indians. The Tigers begin a series tonight against a Mariners team that is fighting to stay in the wildcard race.
- The Tigers are 10-3 ATS in their last 13 games against the American League.
- The total has gone UNDER in 8 of the Mariners’ last 10 games against the AL Central.
- The Tigers are 10-2 in their last 12 games.
Hisashi Iwakuma will get the starting opportunity for Seattle and will bring his 3.99 ERA and 12-7 record to this contest after an excellent start against the Red Sox in which he allowed no runs before being pulled from the game with one out in the seventh inning. The Japanese international has also gotten eight wins in his last 10 starts.
Michael Fulmer gets the start for the Tigers and will look to further solidify his campaign to become AL Rookie of the Year. The first-year hurler owns a 2.42 ERA and 9-2 record and if it weren’t for his late call-up to the big show, he would be a strong contendor for AL Cy Young.
The Tigers have won seven straight contests with Fulmer on the mound and are probably kicking themselves they didn’t call him up sooner.
