Monday’s MLB doubleheader between the Detroit Tigers and Kansas City Royals will take place at Kaufmann Stadium.
The Tigers enter this match with an overall record of 36-49 and a two-game losing streak. The Tigers have only scored two runs in their last two games after having success during the previous week and a half. The Tigers are currently averaging 3.17 runs per game, which ranks them 29th in the league.
The Royals, who have a 32-52 overall record but have recently swept the Cleveland Guardians, are on the opposing side of this duel. The Royals’ 3.91 runs per game average places them 26th in the league. Bobby Witt has 42 RBIs and 12 home runs to his credit.
Michael Pineda, who currently has a 2-3 record and a 3.62 ERA, will start Game 1 for the Tigers.
Brad Keller, who has a 4-9 record and a 4.37 ERA, will start Game 1 for the Royals. In his most recent game, Keller faced the Houston Astros, and in 5.2 innings, he allowed five hits and four runs.
Alex Faedo, a pitcher with the Tigers with a 1-4 record and a 5.02 ERA, will start Game 2 for the team. Faedo gave up four hits and three runs in 3.2 innings during his last start, which was against the Cleveland Guardians.
Daniel Lynch, a pitcher with the Royals with a 3-7 record and a 4.95 ERA, will start Game 2 on the mound.
In Keller’s previous five starts at home against the Royals, he is 0-5. In the Tigers’ previous seven series opener games, the under is 6-0-1. In Pineda’s previous seven starts on grass, the under, he is 6-1.
The Royals have had a lot of difficulty during Keller’s home starts, and it will continue in this contest. With an ERA of 3.62, Pineda will stifle the Royals’ attack in this game. Only four or five runs will be necessary for the Tigers to win to clinch the victory. On the money line, support the Tigers.
I predict that both offenses will be successful in Game 2. Lynch’s current ERA is 4.95, while Faedo’s current ERA is 5.02. Although both of these offenses are unpredictable, they will both be successful in scoring here.
