On Saturday, the Detroit Tigers and the New York Yankees will face off in an MLB matchup at Yankee Stadium. The Yankees were able to secure a 13-0 victory on Friday.
The Yankees are one of baseball’s best teams, having a 37-15 overall record coming into this game. The Yankees offence was the story again on Friday night, with 13 runs scored, but the pitching for this squad continues to be underappreciated. The Yankees have the top run defence in baseball, allowing only 2.98 runs per game. Aaron Judge is having a fantastic season, with 20 home runs and 41 RBIs.
The Detroit Tigers, who are currently rebuilding and have a 21-31 overall record, are on the opposing side of this matchup. They gave up 13 runs on Friday and utilised four pitchers, so the bullpen is a little beat up going into this game. The Tigers’ offence, which has averaged 2.86 runs per game this season, has also been a problem.
Beau Brieske takes the mound for the Tigers, and he has an 0-4 record and a 5.45 ERA. He pitched 5.2 innings against the Twins last time out, allowing six hits and four runs.
Luis Severino, who has a 3-1 record and a 3.38 ERA, takes the mound for the Yankees. He pitched 6.1 innings against the Tampa Bay Rays last time out, allowing two hits and four runs.
Brieske has a 1-4 record in his previous five games with the Tigers. When their opponent scores 2 runs or less in their prior game, the over is 8-1 in Severino’s last 9 starts. After scoring 5 runs or more in their prior game, the Yankees are 5-0 in their last 5 games.
Severino is coming off a rough start, but he now has to deal with a Tigers offence that has been terrible all season. Expect the Yankees to have another successful game against Brieske, who has struggled this season.
