Score: 6 - 0
Money Line: -137 Detroit
Today's winner is Detroit over Oakland.
This series is tied at 2 games apiece, while these two teams have split 10 meetings this season. Detroit possesses a dangerous and healthy offense that ranks 6th in baseball in team BA at .268. The offense has power, speed, and consistency. Today, Justin Verlander gets the start. The RH is 18-8 with a 2.60 ERA this year, including a 3-0, 1.23 mark against Oakland. The A's finished strong to reach the post-season but lacks leadership in their lineup. They average 4.40 RPG overall and have a team BA of .238. Jarrod Parker gets the nod here. The RH is 13-9 on the season, including a 6-5 home record and is 0-2 vs. Detroit. The Tigers are 4-0 in Verlander's L4 starts vs. the A's and 10-4 their L14 games played overall. The A's are 1-4 in Parker's L5 starts following a team loss and 2-6 their L8 Playoff games. Take Detroit. Thank you.
